I had the opportunity tonight to talk with someone from our church about what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. She came to Valley Creek just a few weeks ago and is wanting to figure out how to get past her doubts reconciling God and science. I was able to give her some great resources to read. As I was sitting there tonight I saw Rick Warren's quote on my Starbucks coffee cup.
"You are not an accident. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He wanted you alive and created you for a purpose. Focusing on yourself will never reveal your real purpose. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. Only in God do we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance and our destiny."
The quote fit great in our conversation about why God placed us here on this planet. What a cool moment.
