One of the greatest helps God has given you to remain faithful and a productive member of God’s family is His faith family, the church. When God’s grace washes away your sin (Acts 22:16) by faith when you are baptized into Christ He adds you to His body (Acts 2:47; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Colossians 1:13). The primary reason God does this is that you and I can help each other get to Heaven. Let us help one another to be our best for Christ. Keep your eye on the goal.
What are the Christian’s goals in life? We have multiple goals as disciples. The following list of Scriptures indicate some of our goals: Matthew 5:48, 6:33; 2 Corinthians 5:9, 13:11; Ephesians 5:1; Philippians 2:5 and 1 Thessalonians 2:12. There are many goals that we hold close to our heart, but they derive from desiring to please God and letting His goodness flow through us both in our physical family and spiritual family.
There is not a day that goes by when we can take our eyes off of the goal of pleasing the Lord. We must keep our actions consistent with our heavenly goals. We must keep our priorities consistent with our heavenly desires. Keep your eye on this goal: We make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it (2 Cor. 5:9).
