one reverse fourteen the Bible says Angola said met their new lights in the form of the heaven to divide the day from the much eleventh for signs and for seasons and days and years unleavened for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth and it was so in that horse in that passage we have tool very very fundamental concepts expressed one is existence of the other one is purpose and Dawn said that's in the firmament of heaven that is existence God is bringing something into existence this is to divide the day from the much that is the purpose why they were brought into existence now the purpose logically precedes the existence in other words God has something in mind but it exists in his mind with all the fine and precise details as it subsequently exists when it takes on physical form and shape of it and is three nine mentioned I was it is complete in the mind of God God needed a formal source of light for the evidence of the son of the morning of the stars working before the weather flood when God said let there be lights was nothing haphazard about the appearance of the like the light was already here on this was all like was already done he unfairly gone by the spoken word gave expression to what was a few the purpose was fall I want these bodies to give light of things you give existence of a son moon and the stars so when God saw that it was going what don't Saul was that what was here is precisely what appeared a few are you forward that David Gordon gone all is has a purpose in mind he does nothing just for the sake of doing it what is an orderly dog subsets of a times is a daughter of purpose nor Google 's phone calls effect most of the principles he has placed in the universe and all does not I handedly violate his own principles in Genesis chapter one verse twenty six Bible says I'm bald said let us make man in our image after our likeness let them have dominion over the fish of the sea over followed beer of the capital of all the earth and over every creeping thing that could've up on their knowledge yet again we have purpose and we have existence I hope the following resisting the urge to check in at a snake man that's existence in our image thus the purpose this please if we go back to the sun moon stars friend who one thing in the context of God 's plan for creation of that is to do what good luck that's the major function of the sun moon stars they give life they also manage the division of the seasons that and before the days of the years the seasons so they do that that's what we don't regard to the creation of man it was also the precise about the purpose for mankind of the purpose is rocked the event afterwards rewards in our image we have no other purpose for being on this earth no other purpose I should see that originates with God my boss people find all kinds of purposes that ball did not have in mind but God 's purpose from creation until now is that we would reflect his image was God 's image goals and this is what Moses Solomon going into the garage merciful long-suffering gracious such as subversive apartment building for different impenitent that is Golden 's image along with creativity a sense of order last dosage progress telephone goal is of God that's the reason God made us to be I hear to reflect his image that was the purpose of the purpose was involved in mind before I do believe for me is the purpose has to be established is correct then God said having the purpose and it is mine this is why I want them to exist then God gave them life why why to carry out the purpose and no other reason but the repeater we read we live from God 's perspective for one reason only that is to reflect the image of God in all that we do out of it working in regarding to dresses and keep it was to reflect the image of God was not also given dominion which is also a reflection of God because God has ultimate dominion over the entire universe of vivid tells

conscious if I was supervisor overview of the Department of pediatrics I must exercise that supervisory responsibility with the conscious this supervisor in the Department of eternity unimaginable to him with a visit with the introduction of sin with the greatest curses people can have is to have power over other people what God is out of the minute I was unfollowed and I was supposed to exercise that dominion the week gone himself would do it because in Lynch its purpose is to reflect and to bring to mind a higher perfect original this also means that if I missing some embarrassment all of us we exist for the purpose that comes from us we exist for no purpose that is of our invention I was extreme but it is true all that are supposed to do and maybe must be traced back to Genesis one twenty six and twenty seven goals in which have dominion that's the reason why God gave us existence of our existence how we use it must be a perfect match with God 's purpose so that God could see that it is one good having said that when goblets of our lives today on what we've chosen to do with them and don't see the good we have to shake his head as if that's not what I had in mind for that some of my he has gone the way of the world and is interested for my original design when Jesus was on this earth he never lost sight of the purpose that brought him to always try to get to the right of the left the one thing on the other Christ was stabilized by the consciousness of his purpose it was a consciousness of never slept some man spoken of in chapter twelve verse thirteen unless the one of the company said that I must speak to my brother but he divide the inheritance with me he said of him than me made me a judge of a divider over you what does Jesus say that I don't care if your

references other than that I don't want my purpose is to stand sent I will not let anyone offer me anything that reflects from the path of the purpose God has made known to me we all have the same

someone else a primary school teacher the vital question isn't whether his doctor dentist Moya felt like the question is how I taken into nice old the reality originating from heaven but I am on this earth not for any purpose of my own but football website insanity then God can direct me in the paths along which I must reflect his image above is given to every one of us life the county out on England in July 's purpose to ministers and gone has purposes but a different one from the other even though they both preaching his purposes of golf has an individualized approach to his creatures with repeat golf has given each one of us life to carry out the purpose about the most important thing to us to us must be the preservation of the integrity of the purpose in our lives having said that take the bridge of the evangelist it should be our desire to carry out the purpose of long as we possibly can until the ultimate goal which is everything brought back on the goal 's control of the person of Jesus Christ until that comes to be our desire should be Lord give me life is going to work and work and work as someone said I'm sorry I don't have I would have one life to give my country must be sought we have just one life to give the ball since August the seventh year 's account of my purpose then in the interest of the purpose that God chose Shamil protect the quality of our lives does not the purpose of going benefit more if I'm healthy that if I only see God has something for me to do I would did you say he has such messes up I want but I can't get very far because I'm always sick and sickness is a violation of the roles that brought us put in place that we may remain in prime condition to carry out his purpose and so God 's purpose for me sufferers because I am sixty and I'm simply because of my sin on someone else's sin or both my desire for health must not be so I can live a long time to see my children grow up that's good but be my primary reason for wanting to be healthy my primary reason for good health television I can work hardly you are among the first of money in fact being my primary motivation my primary motivation must be I preserve my

he was the one who arranged the evening and the morning when the first day of the dark part of the day is sleeping time when we quietly advancing all the body suffers and sometimes it suffers beyond the point of recovery because no law gone however seemingly insignificant can be broken with impunity just does not happen the Scripture of the Bible says John ten thirty five Samuel the broken we need to make a pledge today because going 's power is not a Band-Aid for our disobedience if we think that we are dealing very unfairly with God we need to make a pledge that we will indeed by his grace and intensify our awareness that this physical and mental has been entrusted to us entrusted to us for the carrying out of goals purpose health is a sacred director it is not a matter of the vitamin industry it is a sacred biblical concept of slavery read in Revelation twenty one verse four but also like world tears from their eyes there shall be no more death sorrow nor crying neither shall they be any more pain but as the pain of cancer who rheumatoid arthritis the video some degenerative disc in the lower back the pain of whatever this normal pain because God wants us to get back to the original it on Jesus believed in the original book is closed leaving him about the first focus is given nothing like the Lord is it lawful to put aware my wife for every calls Jesus said to them stumble Fred that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female and civil discourse lamented father mother as of Johnson's life of vision on the twain shall be one flesh before they're no more twain but one flesh what therefore both joined together let no man put asunder of the Québec why did Moses then command to give her a writing of the enforcement of the cutaway Jesus said to them Moses because of the hardness of the heart suffered them to put away a wife but from the beginning twice he takes them back to the beginning because bonds arrangement in the beginning before the corruption of sin Jews desire is to restore the original arrangement gone has always had his eyes on the idea it has not changed Revelation twenty one walks on I saw a new heaven with your the first one that was corrupted passed away and going goes back to the original idea will soon knows this enables the window in a sinful world we must live by the principles of the idea because that's what Jesus means when he was appealed to the subtle question about divorce Jesus said will back the weight was to find runs is what he said hast thou not read the majority different than prophets Jesus to read Genesis hast thou not read it don't answer me when we many questions that I possess many of them not all of many of the result of the fact we don't read so we don't believe that the site would conclude by reminding us we here for a purpose the purpose is summed up in three words in our image having settled the purpose in his mind God brought Adam and Eve into existence for the carrying out of that purpose Jesus kept his purpose always before him as a ledger through twelve thirteen to fourteen with a massive speak to my brother that he divided headlands with me GE said to him verse forty the group twelve man who made me a judge on a divider over you Jesus knew what his father had made him by assigning him of responsibility he came to review the far left was a sex toy made him that if I'm expressed about the body to send you to settle disputes what does that so Jesus it may be a judge you you know I can't let you this slide one hundred to go you'll settled that looks questionable and submit whatever you are professionally regular blog of the customs of society gone on the irresistible impulses of the culture and major we walk professional Jesus was clear I was not sent to be a judge or video are defined that's not my work the work you and I do is that the work gone originally had for us attached to the reflection of his image or is the work we do on expressions of our conformity to what society says is necessary to have a certain status of the occupied a certain social economic niche I'm asking no evidence the line of study are currently contemplating is it in line with God 's purpose for you are is in line with what most people do I suspect we have no idea how drastically we have trusted from the purpose God has for us but assuming with generosity at all of us I engaged in activities that are perfectly in conformity with God 's will for us and that's why he gave us life pledge to preserve our health fact we might for as long as we can carry out the purpose also we will bring and tell God the father I believe the reason I chose to work I knew had nothing to do with reflecting your in the honesty of the privacy of my heart I conclude therefore that the reasons that drove me to chose the chosen was secular economic cultural and social and not have rebar hence Rose Lesko to forgive us for the habits that have compromised the health he has given to us as odd as I unfastened the trash and inheritance something we must protect we would tell you we are sorry for the practices that have damaged our health giving the

father in heaven become zero zero children to admit that we have been rebellious stubborn stiffnecked and hypocritical we've come Lord because despite the way we treat you you will not let us know and

people when the convoy to strengthen the brevity was somewhere I think that we will fight me rock and so you persist in holding on in your mind to the original purpose you have for us as a church and as individuals before we want to align ourselves now with that expectation you have which is that we would live in obedience to your law will treasure I protect you image that will reflect would be perfect unreliable liberals looking on father invented two areas are we more irresponsible than in the way we treat our bodies which then affects how will my I was come to say that we have been the role the principles of health and for that reason many of us appreciate spiritual things because the condition of the body affects how the mind works the sharpness of my house of precious tools Laura
