No Higher Purpose


A Christian leader was very sick and not expected to live. Alone with the Lord, He cried, “What should I do, Lord?”

God spoke to his spirit, “The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.”

The man, the director of a large Christian organization, realized that he would not have said it that way. He would have said, “The chief end of man is to glorify God and serve Him forever.” But God is not satisfied with service; He wants us to enjoy Him.

The Lord allowed the man to recover from his illness, and he now lives to enjoy His Lord.

Our service becomes more effective when we live remembering that our  our purpose is to enjoy God rather than to serve Him.

Dear Jesus, my purpose for this day is to enjoy You.

"Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires" (Psalm 37:4 NLT).
