Lenten Meditation: Our God-Given Task


Ecclesiastes 3:10 “I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts”



WE ARE TO BEAUTIFY OUR WORLD The gospel is the good news of salvation. Salvation is wholeness in every part of our lives. He will beautify the meek with salvation. Our God-given task is to lead people – one by one – to the restorer and beautifier – of our souls. We are an incredible force on earth – and together we can beautify our world with many good things.


WE HAVE HEAVEN IN OUR HEARTS God has given us His eternal spirit so that we may know what heaven looks like. Our task is to bring heaven to earth and reveal God’s plan for His creation. Learn to see heaven’s perspective in all things. Get God’s plan for the restoration of all things.


WE ARE TO OCCUPY TILL HE COMES The sons of men are to be occupied with a Godly task until JESUS returns as King. Our task is to build His church and extend His kingdom influence. Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed.


WE ARE TO REDEEM THE TIME Time is the most valuable resource given to mankind. There is coming a day when time will cease and eternity will rule. Until then we are to redeem the time – making all things beautiful. Spend your time serving a noble God cause that has at its core – to beautify the meek with salvation.

YOUR GOD GIVEN TASK IS YOUR DESTINY, WHICH IS TO SPEND YOUR TIME MAKING THE PEOPLE IN YOUR WORLD BEAUTIFUL IN HIM.
