Purposes for our Lives:1. God wants you to know and love Him. (Worship)
2. Learn to love others. (Fellowship)3. To become like Jesus. (Grow Up Spiritually)4. Practice serving other people. (Ministry)5. You were made with a mission.
God uses pain to develop those purposes in your life!
2 Corinthians 1:8-10
Now I am glad I sent it, not because it hurt you but because the pain turned you to God. It was a good kind of sorrow you felt, the kind of sorrow God wants his people to have, so that I need not come to you with harshness."
2. I can use my pain to draw closer to others.
Share each other’s troubles and problems, and so obey our Lord’s command."
3. I can use my pain to become more like Jesus.
*To become more like Jesus, I need to practice using the fruit of the spirit.
