VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:1

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

1 Corinthians 13:1, ESV

If we do things for the sake of those things or to be better, but not because we love God or to love others, those things are useless and distracting.

Seek God first, and seek to bring others into God’s love, and everything we do will have godly purpose.

VerseD: Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10, ESV

We were created to glorify God in Jesus’ Name. That is our purpose.

VerseD: Mark 16:15

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
Mark 16:15, ESV

Our purpose in life is to glorify God. The best way to do this is to tell others about the work of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, to save us from our sins and offer us eternal life.

VerseD: Matthew 5:48

You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5:48, ESV

One way to understand this is “to perform your function or purpose.”

Therefore, as God is sovereign over all and sustains all with power, love, and grace, we should be striving outdo each other in love and share the Gospel to the glory of God.
