*Some call it a quiet time. We call it a Vision Quest. This is a simple Bible study to help you along your journey of discovering God’s purpose for your life.
The Most Meaningful Life You Could Live Is To Help Others Know God
But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
Knowing God and not telling anyone about it is like receiving $1,000,000 and refusing to share any of it with your friends.
Paul realized how great of a gift he had in his relationship with God and made his purpose in life about sharing what he had.
What is your purpose in life? Grades? Popularity? Pleasure? Money?
Do you feel as passionately about your purpose as Paul did about his?
Jesus Died So You Could Live For Him
The love of Christ controls us, because we know that One died for all, so all have died. Christ died for all so that those who live would not continue to live for themselves. He died for them and was raised from the dead so that they would live for him.
II Corinthians 5:14-15
Jesus went through incredible pain, suffering, and ultimately death all so you wouldn’t have to. He did this without knowing if you’d even care about all he did. He did it in hopes that you would be grateful and live for him as a result.

Living Out Jesus’ Purpose Leads To A Rich And Satisfying Life
Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
It’s easy to think that the more you try to take care of your own life, the happier you’ll be. However, there are studies that show that after an average yearly income of about $50,000 for a household, there is no change in happiness level among people. Living for yourself doesn’t bring happiness. In fact, the opposite is true.
