Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: The Power of the Telic (Biblical Purpose)
The resulting problem: A road to nowhere. (Ecc 1:2-7)
Groundhog Day, a comical movie of living the same day over and over, trying to change, but still coming back to the same place. This is how we can feel when we live without purpose. Nothing seems to change; we go round and round like mice on a treadmill—every day feeling like the one before, every new thing failing to bring satisfaction. Life with routine is not the issue, it’s life without purpose and direction that brings no hope.
