40 Days of Purpose – Day 2

Welcome to FaithBuilders. This is Pastor Bill Crane.

We will be posting daily devotions, (an increase from our usual “weekly” pace) for a 40 day period, based on the material in Rick Warren’s best selling book, The Purpose-Driven Life. We invite you to get a copy of the book and read daily one of the 40 chapter of the book along with us. This podcast will include some quotes from the book but will also include supplemental as well as reinforcing material for your encouragement.

Day 2 – You are Not an Accident!

You are not an accident!

Your birth was no mistake or mishap, and your life is no fluke of nature. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He was not at all surprised by your birth. In fact, he expected it. God never does anything accidentally, and he never makes mistakes. He has a reason for everything he creates.

“Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love.” Ephesians 1:4a (Msg)

Why did God bother to go to all the trouble of creating a universe for us? Because he is a God of love. This kind of love is difficult to fathom, but it’s fundamentally reliable. You were created as a special object of God’s love! God made you so he could love you. This is a truth you can build your life on!
