The the tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. Who when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all that with a purpose of heart, they would cleave unto the Lord. – Acts 11: 22-23
We are living in very interesting times and believers must be more alert and purposeful now than ever before. The church cannot afford to sleep on helping its members optimize their life to represent God’s Kingdom in the earth. The world is in desperate need of a New Breed of Believers who are savvy in using purpose to impact the world.
“Amazing Grace” has become the anthem for the church, because it speaks to the frailty of the human nature. However, in spite of the intricate role of grace in the Church, somehow believers have managed to water down its influence in representing the Christian brand.
The lost message
Barnabas realized that if the early church was going to sustain the momentum of grace, believers at Antioch needed to be encouraged to cleave unto the Lord with a purpose of heart.
His exhortation was more than planting seeds of purpose. It was a strategic plan that empowered the believers to harvest the energy of purpose in their heart. Unfortunately, the message of purpose got lost between the head and the heart of twenty-first century believers, as Christians struggle to make the grace and purpose connection.
The Grace and Purpose Connection
God’s grace combined with a purpose of heart allowed the Church to come out the gates strong, and it’s an intricate part in helping the church finish strong!
The Grace and Purpose Connection is broken down into two parts.
- It means to be empowered with wisdom and understanding to celebrate the grace of God. When grace is connected to purpose, believers will create new patterns of purpose that value the grace of God of for their life.
- It’s when the heart of the believer is strengthened with skills to help them obtain a greater sense of purpose, to outsmart the schemes of a culture without God.
Paul confirms this powerful message in 2 Timothy 1:8-9
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
