“My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.”
~ Jesus Christ in John 4:34
Jesus Christ had a clear sense of mission. He knew His Source. He stayed rooted in that Source. And He stayed focused on why His Father sent Him here. As a result of this exemplary clarity of divine purpose, Jesus Christ was able to determine when His assignment was finished.
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
~ John 19:30
You too are sent from the Father. Do you know that? Furthermore, there’s a reason God sent you into this world. Do you know what that is? Do you know why you came into this world? It is impossible to be truly successful if you are not connected to your Source; and if you have no idea why He sent you here.
And there’s my point in this post: Why are you here?
How could anyone claim to be successful solely on the basis of how much cash they stashed in some bank? That’s stupid. If you don’t know where you came from, and why you are here, then what else matters? You can’t actually be truly successful until you discover yourself – including: your root, your mission, your work, your assignment from the Father.
