Colossians 2

Verse 2, "My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ."

Paul knew what he was supposed to be doing. He fully understood his purpose in life - encourage people's hearts, unite people with love so that they may understand the fullness of who Jesus is.

My purpose in life is to love every person that I meet, not just like them, but genuinely show the love of Jesus to them, and to equip people so that they can become more like Jesus - so that this region will understanding the fullness of who Jesus is. I want to love God, love each other, and love the world.

If love can become the driving force of our live,s the Kingdom of God will become known in an ever increasing way. That rests firmly on my shoulders and the people of Charter Oak Church for this region. We must live it.
