[1: 1,913 of 10,000] WOEAIHF? Day 7 of 42

WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 7: The reason for everything

My favorite lines in this chapter and the last one needs acting –

  • The ultimate goal of the universe is to show the glory of God.
  • In nature, we learn that God is powerful, that he enjoys variety, loves beauty, is organized, and is wise and creative.
  • Because of Jesus, we are no longer in the dark about what God is really like.
  • God wants our worship to be motivated by love, thanksgiving, and delight, not duty.
  • Spiritual maturity is becoming like Jesus in the way we think, feel, and act.
  • Even Jesus struggled. Knowing he is about to be crucified, he cried out, “My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose, I came to this hour. Father, glorify Thy name.”
  • Jesus, I believe in you and I receive you.

There is a book called ‘A Course In Miracles’ and it is believed that it was dictated by Jesus from 1965 to 1972. Recently, when I read it, there is a sense of connection with Jesus, I feel comforted by reading his words.
