The Purpose to be Lived In the Stature of a Perfect Man?
The purpose to be lived with God is very high, it is to fulfill the mission He has given us. Jesus said: "As the Father sent me I send you." This is the purpose to be lived the fact that we see God always ensures success in all situations for his children. The Love of God is always watching and protecting us in every circumstance of life. Jesus came to bring us life in abundance, and God wants us to enjoy this life here.
Many people complain because they do not receive all these promises. The promises are for those who receive Jesus and believe in him (John 1:12). Can you already understand what the mission of Jesus was here on earth? Jesus says that just as the Father has sent me, I send you. Being sent by Jesus is to fulfill a very high mission; to announce "God is Love" to all human beings. The purpose is to reach every human being and fish them into His kingdom. Jesus said I will make you fisher of man. God wants to see our life fulfilled to the end, and He wants to see us happy, in “God is Love” so that we can reach the highest perspective that comes from the Throne of God. Gad made us, created us to have a Loving Relationship with us for all eternity in His Kingdom; protected from all evil.
If God did not have a very high purpose in the creation of the human being, he would not have created him in His Own Image and Likeness. God first created the entire universe, he made all the vegetation on the land to produce food for the animals and for the human being HE was about to create. But, only the human being was created in the image of God and His likeness. The human being is created in a special way, God had intended to have an eternal relationship with this being that he created. This is evidenced by the fact that he did not spare His Own Son to save the human being when he fell from Gods grace. The purpose to be lived is to reach the stature of a perfect man to fulfill the sending of the human being by the Lord Jesus.
The Great Commission according to Mathew 28:16-20:
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.
17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
According to Mark 16:14-20
14 Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
18they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
What is the Purpose to be lived in the Stature of a Perfect Man? I do believe that base on the two Scriptures stated above we can say that the Purpose to be lived is to obey in the call Jesus has given us. Going therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely we can know that Jesus is with us always, to the very end of the age. And we need to believe that what Jesus said happens and that He fulfills His promises, as we walk upon this Promises. Jesus whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In the name of Jesus we as well will drive out demons; we will speak in new tongues; we will pick up snakes with our hands; and when we drink deadly poison, it will not hurt us at all; and we will place our hands on sick people, and they will get well. Yes, based upon the promise of Jesus we need to take our stand. It is His Word and He sent us as His Father sent Him.
God is preparing the Bride of Christ here on earth, the beloved Church that He is building in Christ Jesus. One day Jesus will come to pick up His Church. In Revelation we read that we will celebrate the wedding of the Lamb, and we will be the Bride. Together with Him we shall reign for all eternity over the entire universe and everything that God has created, that what now with these eyes we cannot observe or see. Our mind has not the capacity of understanding everything at this point. But, one day we will see and understand as we are seen and understood by him, God.
"By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me" - Jn. 5:30.
Jesus did not come to do his will but the will of His Father who is in heaven. Jesus teaches us to be the same way and seek the will of the Father who is in heaven. In the next chapter we will see that he teaches, as the Father, who lives, hath sent me and I live by the Father. He goes on to say in that verse: “Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me” - Jn. 6:57. This fact is the purpose to be lived in the stature of a perfect man that Jesus compares the fact that he lived by the Father So it is with us, who feeds on Him, Jesus, will live by Him.
The mission that Jesus the Christ had was to be the Messiah who would restore the life of the human being to a higher level than it was before the fall there in the Garden Eden. Jesus gave the right to become Children of God, for those that believe in His Name. "Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--” - Jn. 1:12. Jesus came and died for us and fulfilling His mission and also sent those who received Him to continue His work earth. Jesus said that He would go and prepare a place for us to live with Him in Heaven. "In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" – Jn. 14: 2-3 - NIV. In the KJV it says “mansions”, and NASB says “dwelling places”.
Jesus makes a point of explaining to his followers, his disciples, that in his Father's house are many dwelling places, or lots of room for everyone who wants to be with Him in heaven. These dwelling places have been prepared for those who will live there with Him.
The Eternal Purpose to be lived with God the Father is to be with Him in glory where He has prepared a dwelling place for us; homes or mansions. Does not matter what name we give it, I think if this universe in which we live is already so beautiful how much more will heaven be? We are unable to understand with our mind the dimension of the life that we will have with God the Father and Jesus Christ in glory over there, but we know that "God is Love," is preparing something beautiful for us.
In the Lord's Service
I greet you in His Love
