THE DANGER OF PURPOSE WITHOUT A CLEAR SENSE OF VISION.
Life is about service. God created everything, including man, to be an instrument of ministry unto him. The more we understand what we are designed to serve, the greater our lives become even more relevant, successful, and fulfilling.
Everything we are currently doing serves a purpose. The question, however, is, who’s purpose is it serving? You might serve a purpose that brings glory to God, or a purpose that brings glory to the self-life, indirectly serving the prince of this world who is the devil.
God created everything to serve a definite purpose. The entire order of creation revolves around a specific purpose, or else, the orbital order of life would be disorderly and chaotic, to say the least.
Purpose speaks into the proper way and order of how people and things should function efficiently, effectively, and productively. As we have said, purpose is not vision. Vision, however, informs and drives purpose towards effective functionality.
PURPOSE AND MOTIVATION
Purpose set in motion through the uniqueness of our vision, regulate and motivate us towards certain values and behavioral order of thinking and acting to ensure the fulfillment and actualization of such vision.
The reality is, where your motivation and inspiration comes from is an indicator of the ideology that shapes and defines your purpose.
Purpose is the fuel that makes the engine of your [vision] car drive effectively towards the direction of your ultimate vision.
Hence, if you have an inaccurate understanding of vision, your set objective will be wrongly interpreted, which would cause you to accept any means or method in the name of purpose in seeking to carry out heaven’s dream.
