"When David had served God's purpose in his own generation,he fell asleep"...Acts 13:36. God has a plan, a purpose for each of us...our destiny! All of us are born into purpose. We were in Him and in His thoughts before we were conceived by earthly parents! He purposed us for this time in history with unique strengths and weaknesses, with natural and supernatural gifts. In this scripture verse, Paul comments on the life of King David and set all of David's success and failure, his defeats and his victories, in one truth. He fulfilled his destiny!!! God had a certain purpose for David and his life which mirrored the larger plan and purpose God had for that generation! Even after making mistake after mistake, David still performed his purpose. How about our purpose for being in this time and this place? We ask you God,to make our destiny so clear that we can take ownership of it... and perform it! No matter the obstacles and opposition!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
