A relationship with God is the only thing in the world that can give you what you need to build a life with purpose, to know why you even exist.

A relationship with God resolves the issue of, "Who am I?" You know who you are - God's child. Paul says that when a believer trusts Jesus as Savior, he is adopted into the family of God, which unites men and women of every race.

While this relationship with God produces a sense of definition and purpose in life, it also gives you a sense of empowerment. When you become God's child, He comes to indwell your life. And this indwelling presence of God results in an empowerment for life and service. It's the key to a successful, purposeful life.

No person has succeeded in life until he writes, "Enter God" at the top of life's page. When Paul tells believers they are to be filled with the Spirit, he is talking about something missing in the lives of many of God's children today.

Are you a child of the King? Your answer is either "Yes" or "No." If "Yes," may I follow by asking, "Do you live like one?" And if "No," I would ask, "Why not become one?" It's the key to living, loving, and enjoying life to the fullest.


But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.  ACTS 1:8
