Life Purpose Statement

A Life Purpose Statement summarizes God’s purpose for your life, points the direction of your life, defines “success” for you, clarifies your roles, and expresses your shape. It also answers the following questions:

1. What will be the center of my life?

2. What will be the character of my life?

3. What will be the contribution of my life?

4. What will be the communication of my life?

5. What will be the community of my life?

Take some time to think about your Life Purpose Statement, write it out and post it here!  You may also want to include you Life Message in it, which was covered in chapter 37. This would include your testimony, life lessons, godly passions, and the Good News! This could be a powerful component to your Life Purpose Statement! I look forward to reading your Life Purpose Statement here!
