John 20:26-31 NIV

A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”


Jesus’ purpose is revealed as our Messiah and Savior who delivered us from sin and eternal death. John 3:16, one of the most memorized scriptures reminds us that, whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Thomas a disciple of Jesus who walked with Him for approximately three years did not believe. Thomas was doubtful even after Jesus resurrected, he did not believe in His word but by seeing Him and touching the wounds. Jesus says to us today, “blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:29). To fully discover and walk in our purposes, Jesus calls us to first believe in Him and depend upon Him for His purposes cannot be thwarted (Job 42:2).


Purpose in Greek is written as prothesis which can be dissected into two words, pro which means before and thesis which means a place or a setting forth. The word proposes, a deliberate plan, proposition, advance plan, an intention or a design. Everyone of us have a purpose that should drive us. God has created each one of us uniquely to serve a particular purpose. We form the body of Christ, and members individually. Some are apostles, others prophets, teachers, gift of miracles, healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues, speak with tongues, interpretation of tongues. Some are apostles, prophets, teachers and workers of miracles (1 Corinthians 12:27-30). God knew this purpose before we were formed in our mothers wombs. God sanctified us and ordained us to be prophets or any other purpose that He prepared for us (Jeremiah 1:4-5). God sanctifies us with His precious blood and grant us favor and grace to achieve and accomplish the great work ordained for us. Each one has a mandate to fulfill and when the common funeral scripture is read about any one of us, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). It will be true. We will be true witnesses of God’s word. David served God’s purpose in his own generation, he died and was buried and his body decayed (Acts 13:36). David left a lasting mark during his generation and the generations to come. Purpose ultimately points to God’s eternal plan relating to salvation. Our personal salvation was not only well planned but demonstrates God’s abiding faithfulness as He waits the consummation of His great plan for His people and the church. Let us therefore not faint or be discouraged as we endure to serve God in our purposes for all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).


Dear Lord we are Yours, we belong to You. We are Your workmanship, created in You Christ Jesus to do good works, which You prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. You have created us in Your own image and likeness, may You help us and use us to disciple, create, implement, preach, move according to Your divine frequency for greater works than the ones You did dear Jesus Christ. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
