The Assignment

Each of us is not here on the earth to just exist. All of us are designed for a specific purpose. Our call “to be saved” is identical, yet our ministries are quite different. Not everyone will be assigned to preach; teach or sing in the choir (1 Corinthians 12:27-30). For instance, your ministry may be just to minister to your family members by the example of your lifestyle (how you handle difficult situations, your steadfastness in prayer, etc). Perhaps it’s being a great leader among your colleagues by the demonstration of integrity (through how well you do your job without partiality). Whichever the case, GOD desires to reveal to us HIS ASSIGNED PURPOSE for our lives.

Before going any further, an established foundation is needed to provide more clarity. From the moment we were birthed, we were born into sin because of the disobedience of Adam (our first ancestor). Since then, we were raised (trained) to live against GOD. Even though we’re not responsible for the disobedience of Adam, the affects have been passed down to us through a generational curse (making us capable of sinning). Therefore, since our sinful nature cannot please (obey) GOD (Romans 8:7-8), we are helpless in saving ourselves. JESUS’ PURPOSE of THE FATHERS’ WILL was to redeem all mankind (by dying for us). Hint: JESUS did not want to die (Matthew 26:39 & John 14:31), HE had to die (definitely THE FATHERS’ WILL) and since The SON of GOD was not exempt from such a purpose (John 3:16), so we are without an excuse of not following HIS example of obedience (1 Peter 2:21).

The following Scripture gives further illustration between the purposes of both Adam and JESUS CHRIST. “For just as one man’s disobedience (Adam) many were constituted as sinners, so by one man’s obedience (JESUS CHRIST) the many will be constituted as Righteous (made acceptable to GOD, brought into right standing with HIM), Romans 5:19. From the previous scripture, we know Adam’s purpose was to multiply the earth (begin the cycle of generations). Then once a person comes into the conformity of the second birth, that person becomes aware “that we must be reborn, John 3:1-5”. In order for any of us to accomplish the next task, we must be reconciled with GOD by the purpose of what JESUS’ COMPLETED MISSION achieved for us. The next assignment consists of the authenticity of our spiritual adoption, Ephesians 1:5). From there, we are to produce the manifestation of GODS’ WILL for our lives (according to HIS’ Approval) and then “The Journey Begins!”
