The Purpose Driven Life is a bible study book written by an American Christian Pastor Rick Warren. This book offers readers a 40-day personal spiritual journey and presents what Warren says are God’s five purposes for human life on Earth. It encompasses the Scripture based teachings that enlighten God’s sure plan to His people.
All the Pentecostal Churches in Rwanda committed to read this book and ponder on the message contained therein. The most basic question everyone faces in life is : WHY AM I HERE ? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE ? Self-help books suggest that people should look within, at their own desires and dreams, but Rick Warren reiterates that the starting place must be with God and his eternal purposes for each life. Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth.
The Purpose-Driven Life takes the core message of the Church and goes deeper, applying it to the lifestyle of individual Christians.
Our dear Pastors ; Pst Evariste and Annet Rwabikinga said : “This book helps readers understand God’s incredible plan for their lives as it enables us to see the big picture of what life is all about and begin to live the life God created us to live.”
The Book describes a lifestyle based on eternal purposes, not cultural values. It uses Biblical stories clearly explains God’s five purposes for each of us. They are the following :
1. We were planned for God’s pleasure : our first purpose is to offer real worship,
2. We were formed for God’s family : our second purpose is to enjoy real fellowship,
3. We were created to become like Christ : our third purpose is to learn real discipleship,
4. We were shaped for serving God : our fourth purpose is to practice real ministry,
5. We were made for a mission : our fifth purpose is to live out real evangelism.
Our Pastors encouraged all Christians to consistently and extensively read the book and deeply think on all the points enshrined therein. It is written in a captivating devotional style allowing us to read it as a daily devotion. The Spiritual journey continues !
