Have you defined your purpose for living? In other words, have you given it much thought as to WHY God gave you a chance to live on this planet?
Most people have no clue as to WHY God gave them a chance to live here. It isn't that He wants it some big secret either.
If you have never been confronted with this, we do not want you to live your whole life without ever hearing this. The reason God gave you a life to live on this planet is to see what you will do with it.
What God REALLY HOPES you will do is use your life to glorify Him. People who have come to realize there is no greater purpose than to diligently find ways to glorify God are ones God is going to bless through all eternity. Why so? Because these are the ones who can be trusted with greater responsibility than anyone else. They may not see a lot of monetary compensation nor accolades of praise, but it is forming something in them more treasured to God than all the monetary wealth this world could give a person. What IS that treasure God sees as so priceless? Godly CHARACTER.
Why is Godly character so treasured by the Creator? There are a lot of reasons, but one that comes to mind right now is the fact that the Bible promises that those who give themselves over totally to the Lordship of Jesus Christ are going to co-reign with Him through eternity. We have very little understanding of what that all means, but we CAN know this, because the Bible clearly states it. Those who are qualified to co-reign with Jesus Christ through eternity will receive JOY beyond comprehension, at least in this life.
So ask yourself a very important question. Just what are you willing to give up, to be the BEST of the BEST for God?
Aside from everything you may think about Jesus Christ, if you have ever read any of the Bible, it should become quite clear that Jesus did not live for Himself. His purpose for living on this planet was to seek neither pleasure, fame nor financial wealth, nor power. His purpose was simply to glorify God the Father. It was His consuming passion. He showed the world that there is nothing more important in this life than to diligently pursue looking for ways to Glorify God the Father.
It took many, many years for Doug Malear to come to that conclusion, but better late than never! Doug came from a middle class family. He had a loving, hard working father, and a responsible and loving mother. Doug did not come from a dysfunctional home like so many other drug addicts have come from.
During the 1960ís there was a different way to view life. PEACE, LOVE AND DOPE was the holy mantra of the hippie movement, and Doug felt very comfortable being a part of it. It was in that environment where he fell in love with lady Heroin, which would control his life for the next 23 years.
Some people can surrender to God much easier than others. Doug did not find it easy surrendering to God, and this testimony can minister HOPE to so many others who just have such a difficult time surrendering to God, and staying addiction free.
Doug is a graduate of Western Michigan Teen Challenge ministry. It was there that he finally was able to stay away from the control drugs and Satan had on his mind and body.
Today, Doug has answered Godís call to use him to reach out to others just like he used to be. He is on the front lines in the inner-city of Muskegon, Michigan, offering hope and help to those wayward souls looking for a reason to find something in life worth giving themselves to besides one more miserable day of living for another fix.
This is the precious ministry Doug is currently ministering with: http://www.hopelighthouse.org/fire%20escape%20cafe.htm
Doug's video testimony: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from the Holy Spirit that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for yours sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to cover your sins? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To be at peace with God; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
