  Everyone’s life is driven by something:  1.   Guilt- memories We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.  2.   Anger a. clam up b. blow up 3.   Fear Fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. 4.   Materialism Self-worth and net worth are not the same. Your value is not determined by your valuables. 5.   Need for approval *Unfortunately, those who follow the crowd usually get lost in it. No one can serve two masters! Benefits of Purpose Driven Living 1.   Gives meaning to your life. When life has meaning, you can bear almost anything; without it, nothing is bearable. Without God, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope. Hope is as essential to your life as air and water. “God…is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of  -infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20  2.   Simplifies your life Does this activity help me fulfill one of God’s purposes of my life?  It leads to a simpler lifestyle and a saner schedule. 3.   Focuses your life Many people are like gyroscopes, spinning around at a frantic pace but never going anywhere. The power of focusing can be seen in light. Diffused light has little power or impact, but you can concentrate its energy by focusing it. Never confuse activity with productivity. 4.   Motivates your life Purpose always produces passion. 5.   Prepares you for eternity What ultimately matters most will not be what others say about your life but WHAT GOD SAYS. What people fail to realize is that all achievements are eventually surpassed, records are broken, reputations fade, and tributes are forgotten. Living to create an earthly legacy is a short-sighted goal. A wiser use of time is to build an ETERNAL legacy.  God will ask two crucial questions: 1. What did you do with my Son, Jesus Christ? 2. What did you do with what I gave you? Points to ponder: Living on purpose is the path to peace.
