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 critical need: Staying purpose-focused. (Col 1:24-29)
The certain hope of eternity brings peace and triumph for a life lived in Jesus. However, eternity is not just about the destination, it’s also about living a fulfilled life with hope, and with purpose. Paul’s lifestyle and words displayed the reason he lived everyday—to show others the person of Jesus Christ and lead them to a life and eternity with him.
