Quote: “Great works almost always begin with great dreams!” – Chip Ingram

Several years ago, my oldest son came home with a dream of God in his heart. His dream was to start a bible club at his junior high school where children could have the freedom to learn about God and live a life of victory in the Lord. He had a little trouble getting started at first so he wasn’t actually able to do it before graduating on to high school; however, his dream didn’t die. He carried it with him to high school and with some help from his pastors and a school teacher to sponsor the club; his dream came alive with a student led bible club named Life on Purpose. Since its founding, the Life on Purpose bible club has reached hundreds of high school students with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ right in their school, with many beginning to pursue their destiny and purpose in God. And guess what? My son’s younger brother has followed in his footsteps, starting a Life on Purpose bible club in his junior high school – the same school where my oldest son first dreamed of starting a club. God is so good that when He gives us a dream, He knows how to make it happen, even when it looks like it will never happen. You see, God’s dreams aren’t just good dreams, they are great dreams that make an impact in His kingdom! The seed that my son planted in faithfulness and obedience to God will definitely produce a fruit of righteousness in his generation that cannot be taken away.

No matter what, God’s dream and purpose for our lives will always come alive when we take a risk to respond in faith to His calling in our hearts. And it’s not because we are so good and faithful, never falling down or making any mistakes. It’s simply because we are God’s workmanship and He is faithful to complete the good work that He begins in us. The Truth states in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Therefore, God’s will and desire for us is to walk in the good works that He prepared for us before we were even born. And as the apostle Paul states in Philippians 1:6, we can be “confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” I am so thankful that God Himself is the faithful Author and Finisher of our faith and not us; otherwise, I don’t believe any of us would ever make it to the finish line.

Lastly, the Truth states in 2 Timothy 2:13 that “If we are faithless, He [the Lord] remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.” Selah! Because my children are born of my loins, they carry my genetic DNA and are biologically identified as my children forever. There is no possible way that I can ever deny them because of this genetic truth. I am so grateful that God our Father is the exact same way with His children whom are born of His loins and carry His spiritual DNA in Christ! As a father, I give thanks to God for His faithfulness that reaches to the clouds and His mercy that endures forever! With a spirit of wisdom and excellence, take a risk, seek the Truth, and live life deep on purpose as a child of God!
