“Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.””
John 18:37 ESV
Jesus is standing before Pilate. The Jews handed him over and Pilate asks him about his kingship, Jesus responds… For this purpose I was born!
What purpose are we born for? We all have a purpose in this world. Jesus’ purpose in that moment was to bear witness of the truth. Basically he is the truth. His purpose was to reveal the truth in JESUS the son of God. The catch here is that if we know the truth then we listen to the truth. The religious leaders did not know the truth, so they did not listen to the truth. If we know Jesus..then We will listen to him.
What is he saying to us today? What is he saying to me today?
What purpose do I have in this world? Am I listening?
Jesus…help me to live life on purpose! Help me to see the purpose you have for my life!
