The Marketplace of Redemption

 
As an economist, it fascinates me that the biggest transaction in history was written in blood on a wooden cross some 2,000 years ago. Did you know that you are a beneficiary of that transaction? The transaction radically revealed how much you are truly worth and it offered you great freedom and hope in life. I am thoroughly convinced that the more we realize the significance of this great act of redemption, the more we will discover our purpose and live truly victorious lives. In this blog, discover more about the transaction that has been paid in full for your complete freedom and well-being.

Have you found what you’re looking for?

Life is like a marketplace—it is a big arena, filled with diverse activities and diverse participants. People gather to buy and sell. Deals are made. Agreements are signed. There are risks and rewards. There are gains and losses. There are all kinds of activities and motives. But there is one consistent thing among all participants in the marketplace of life: everyone is looking for something to satisfy a particular need or desire
 
There is something in the marketplace of life that is an absolute necessity for all mankind. It is the one thing that can fulfill mankind’s desires. This one thing, however, cannot be obtained through the usual way of the market. It cannot be supplied by any dealer or broker in the marketplace. Neither can it be bought with money nor earned with human effort nor human performance. This fundamental need in the marketplace of life is salvation from sin.
 

You have a constraint that must be removed

A constraint is something that places limitations on a desired outcome. In life, sin is the biggest constraint that we are all born with. Romans 3:10 says, “There is none righteous, no, not one.” This statement “evens out” the playing field! There is no one that meets God’s standard, unless God comes along and removes the constraint of sin in that person’s life. Has the constraint of sin been removed in your life?
 
People sometimes ask, “What if I try to be a good person and do good things? Isn’t that enough in life?” The truth is,even with all the good and benevolent deeds we may do, we still fall short of God’s standard of righteousness, which is required to overcome the sin nature in our lives. Being “good” is a virtue that must be encouraged, but good works alone are not enough. Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” All mankind fell short of God’s righteous standard, and we cannot attain that righteous standard on our own.
 

Good news…the Redeemer has come to the market

In my previous blog, I talked about how we have been delivered from the salve market of sin. Sin alienates us from God and leaves us in bondage. Satan takes advantage of our sinful state and unleashes his agenda of destruction. As I pointed out, Jesus came to redeem us and deliver us from that slave market of sin. Jesus came to remove the constraint of sin through His sacrifice on the Cross. This is what redemption is all about. The word “redemption” means “to set free,” or “to deliver.” Redemption comes through the “payment of a price.” Simply put, redemption is “liberation acquired through the payment of a ransom.” This liberation does not come from our own effort or performance—it comes from the one and only Person who is uniquely qualified to be The Redeemer!
 

Do you know your true worth?

No amount of money or physical wealth can measure your true worth. You are worth much more that anything this world can ever give you. You have to know that! Your true value is in knowing that you were created by God and redeemed by His Son. The Bible says, “For you were bought at a price” (1 Corinthians 6:20). What was the demanded price for your redemption? It certainly wasn’t in any monetary measure!  
 
The price for your redemption was the blood of Jesus. Colossians 1:14 and Ephesians 1:7 says: In whom we have redemption through his blood.Only the blood of Jesus could redeem mankind; nothing less than that. The blood of animals is not enough. Not even human effort and good deeds are enough. No rituals or performance are enough to redeem you from sin. Only Jesus, the perfect, sinless sacrifice, can redeem you. This is how much you are worth!
 
You are worth so much to God. The great God of all creation made you in His image, and He wants to reveal more of Himself to you. He has placed so much value in every human being and wants each of us to discover how much He loves us. The Bible says God has crowned mankind with “glory and honor” (Psalm 8:5) and His thoughts toward mankind are so precious and numerous—“they outnumber the sands by the sea” (Psalm 139:17). This is how much God values us, and it is important that we know it. When you realize that God values you, you will start seeing value in yourself. And when you see value in yourself, you will see value in other people. You will begin to understand that you were created for a purpose. You are not a random accident! You are not an experiment! You are not a mistake! There is something special in you. That special thing in you, is the most beautiful portrait of God’s purpose for all mankind—it is The Image of God. 
 
The constraint of sin hinders us from realizing our true worth. The good news is Jesus has already come into the marketplace of sin to redeem us. To buy us back. To restore us back to perfect fellowship with God so we can know our true worth and know that we are loved by God. 
 

Your freedom was paid for in full…just take it

The last words that Jesus uttered at the Cross were, “it is finished.” Jesus was signaling that He had paid in full the ransom for our deliverance and His mission was complete. John 19:30 says: So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “IT IS FINISHED!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. The words “it is finished” are translated from the Greek word tetelestai. This word has an interesting significance. Historically, the word tetelestai was commonly used in business documents to confirm that a transaction had been made and all dues had been paid. The same word was used in prison documents when a prisoner was set free, to confirm that the prisoner’s penalty (sin, offense) had been served in full and the prisoner could walk free. So, when Jesus said “it is finished”, He was declaring that our debt of sin had been paid for, and we could walk free. The transaction had been made. The ransom had been paid for in full.
 
Mathew chapter 20 tells us that Jesus came to pay the ransom, not just for a few individuals but for many. In fact, the ransom was paid for all. Matthew 20:28 says: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. When Jesus offered Himself on the Cross, God’s wrath toward sin was appeased, and mankind became reconciled with God. All mankind stands to benefit from the Cross, but we must understand that there are some “terms and conditions”, that is: The provision of the ransom from sin is universal; it is for all mankind. But the benefit of the paid ransom is only actual for those who accept that Jesus has delivered them from their sins.We have been bought out of the marketplace of sin by the blood of Jesus. Every participant of this marketplace is invited into the freedom that has been provided through the finished work of the Cross. All we have to do is accept the invitation!
 
The Son of God came into the marketplace of sin, and bought us out of it, with the highest price that could ever be paid. All participants of this marketplace, that is, all mankind, stand to benefit from this great act of redemption if they acknowledge the payment that has been made by the Redeemer. Have you acknowledged this payment that has been made on your behalf? If not, what are you waiting for? The ransom for your freedom and true fulfillment has been paid! Your utility in life can only be truly satisfied if the constraint of sin is removed from your life.
 
Jesus is the Redeemer who forgives you and washes your sins away. It doesn’t matter what you have done in your past. It doesn’t matter how far you have fallen. It doesn’t matter how bad your situation looks. Your freedom has been paid for in full at the Cross. Acknowledge Jesus today and walk in your freedom!
 
Blessings!

Delivered from the Slave Market

Do you feel like a prisoner and can’t seem to break free from life’s challenges? Are you pursuing success but feel enslaved and can’t seem to find lasting peace and joy? The truth is, there is an underlying force that seeks to keep all of us in bondage. Did you know, however, that you do not have to be in bondage anymore because your freedom has been paid for in full?
 

The Slave Market of Sin

Sin is the underlying force that seeks to keep us in bondage and never experience freedom and fulfillment in life.When sin entered the world, through Adam’s disobedience, we all became alienated from God, and sin became our new master. Romans 7:14 says, “We were sold under sin.” We became the legal property of a new owner. God was no longer the influencer of mankind, sin was. Romans 6:20 says “we became slaves to sin.” Sin gained dominion over us and reigned in our bodies. We simply obeyed its lusts. We became driven by our flesh and were no longer aware of our spiritual identity. Many people find themselves in this slave market of sin. As Romans 6:19 says, we become “slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness.” These are the prevailing conditions in the slave market of sin. Those who are under this slave market put their will above the will of God, not realizing, however, they are not in control—they are in bondage. They are in bondage to a cruel and wicked master.
 
Satan is in charge of the slave market of sin. Satan exploits mankind’s sinful condition and he uses and abuses those who are in the slave market—unleashing his agenda, which is to steal, kill and destroy (see John 10:10). But no one should continue to live under Satan’s bondage. God has sent His Son to deliver all of us from the slave market of sin. Are you struggling with certain sinful habits. Are you pursuing worldly things at the expense of your spiritual growth? Or perhaps you have never asked God to forgive you of your sins? Well, today is your day! Makeup up your mind today, that you will no longer be a part of the sinful marketplace. Chose freedom over bondage. Choose God, because true freedom is found in Him. It might seem difficult to live in obedience to God, but God will help you overcome. He has already sent His Son to get you out of the slave market of sin.
 

Jesus the Deliverer

Jesus Christ came to rescue you from the slave market of sin. He came to free you from bondage and restore you to a life of purpose in God. Today you can reject Satan, the wicked slave master whose aim is to steal, kill, and destroy. You can run to your true Master, Jesus Christ, who came to redeem you and give you abundant life. Romans 6:17 says “But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered.” This scripture shows us that although sin had enslaved mankind, every believer can rise above sin and choose to obey God. It is through this life of obedience to God that anyone can break free from the slave market of sin.
 

Do you know that you Have Been set free?

 
Although Jesus has set us free from the bondage of sin and set us free from Satan’s power, many people do not realize the freedom that God has made available to them. Satan does all he can to keep people in ignorance of the freedom they have received in Christ. God wants you to experience the fullness of all He has made available to you, but it is only when you know what belongs to you that you can truly walk in freedom. But today you can know more about who you are in Christ and what Christ has done for you. You can know what freedom looks like. What love looks like. What forgiveness looks like. You can know God. You can know Jesus, and the redemption He provided for you at the Cross.
 

Your redemption in four words

A study of the Greek New Testament provides further insight on mankind’s redemption from the salve market of sin. There are mainly four Greek words which are translated “redemption” in the New Testament. These words are:
  • Agorazo, (pronounced agaradzo)
  • Exagorazo, (pronounced exagaradzo)
  • Lytron, (pronounced luthron)
  • Apolytrosis, (pronounced apoluthrosis)

These words reveal the following regarding mankind’s deliverance from bondage:

  1. Agoradzo, is associated with markets. In the context of redemption, it conveys the idea of buying a slave. We can interpret this word to mean “being bought in a slave market.”
  2. Exagorazo, is made up of two words: ex, which means “out of,” or “removal from,” and agorazo, which we interpreted as “being bought in a slave market.” Putting the two words together, exagorazo means “being bought out of a slave market.”
  3. Lytron (also used as the verb lytroo or as the noun lytrosis) is associated with “paying the demanded price,” or “payment of a ransom.” In the context of redemption, lytron means “setting a captive free by the payment of a ransom.”
  4. Apolytrosis, is made up of two words: apo, which can be interpreted as “to return,” or “to go back,” and lutrosis, which comes from lytron—which we defined as “payment of a ransom.” Put together, the word apolytrosis means “payment of a ransom to restore a captive.”
 
Based on these Greek word studies, we learn that: We have been bought (agorazo) in the slave market of sin, where we had been held captive. Jesus came to this slave market and bought us out (exagoridzo). He took us out of bondage by paying a ransom (lytron, lytroo, lytrosis). The ransom was His blood, which was the most expensive price. He ransomed us out of the slave market (apolystrosis) and restored us back to the purpose that God had for us before our captivity.
 
You can break away from the slave market of sin because Jesus has set you free. Your freedom has been paid for in full at the Cross. Acknowledge Jesus today and walk in the freedom He has made available to you for all the days of your life.
 

TODAY IS YOUR DAY OF SALVATION

If you have never acknowledged Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, pray this simple prayer, and believe it in your heart. When you do so, you will become born again. Your sins will be forgiven, and God will fill you with His Spirit and give your purpose and victory in life. Salvation Prayer

Renewing the Mind. Overcoming Satan’s mind games

If salvation is spiritual, why does the Bible talk about the renewing of the mind? A key reason is that our minds are a battle field in which Satan tries to plant lies and deception, to limit us from experiencing the freedom we have in Christ.
 

 

The Battlefield of the mind

As a Christian, your spirit is saved, but the mind (and by extension the body) can be deceived into corrupt conduct if it is not renewed and refocused on spiritual things. When you have an unrenewed mindset, your thinking is shaped by experiences, perceptions or desires of the past. Your mind is often bound by guilt, fear, anxiety, condemnation, or wrong thinking.
 
The problem with having a mind that is not renewed is that your spiritual growth becomes stunted. You will struggle to translate the spiritual blessing of salvation into day to day victory in your life. Spiritual regeneration (salvation) that is not coupled with the renewing of the mind leads to stagnation and frustration. Satan’s strategy is to try and convince you that God has not set you free. Satan will try to get you to doubt what you have in Christ. He wants to hinder your transformation and doesn’t want you to think and act like a new creature in Christ.
 
As a Christian, God has blessed you with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3) and given you all things pertaining to life and to godliness (2 Peter 1:3). This is your spiritual reality and heritage in Christ, and you must see yourself that way. Realize that the mind is a battlefield of strongholds, and your mind needs to be renewed (by the word of God) so you can walk in the freedom that God has already given you.
 

The Power of the Mind

The mind comprises the faculties of perceiving, understanding, feeling, judging, and determining. The mind is where our will is. As free moral agents, God respects our will and gives us the power of choice. This makes the mind a very powerful asset. The mind is so powerful, the Bible says:
  • We serve the Lord with the mind (Rom 7:25).
  • We love the Lord with all our being; including the mind (Luke 10:27).
  • We are transformed by the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2).
  • We are renewed in the spirit of our mind (Ephesians 4:23).
  • Being spiritually minded brings life and peace (Romans 8:6).
 
Given how powerful and influential our minds are, Satan makes our minds his prime target. Some of the greatest strongholds in a believer’s life are in the mind! We must realize that the mind is a battle field! There are many ways through which Satan perpetrates his agenda of destruction in the world, but some of his most destructive warfare is waged in our minds. Although Satan is a defeated foe, he knows the power of the mind. He knows that if he can control our minds, he can control our lives. Unfortunately, when we don’t know who we are in Christ, Satan’s agenda prevails. This is why the Bible says we must resist the devil’s lies. James 4:7 says “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
 

Casting down Imaginations

It is interesting how the Bible speaks of spiritual strongholds in the context of the mind.
2 Corinthians 10:4-6 says: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments (imaginations) and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
 
This scripture mentions arguments, imaginations, and thoughts. These are operations of the mind that can work against the will of God for our lives. Satan brings arguments, imaginations, and thoughts that are contrary to the knowledge of God. He plants thoughts of fear, anxiety, condemnation, trauma, wrong thinking, etc., in our minds, and these become strongholds. The longer we dwell in that kind of negative mindset, the less convinced we are of God’s love and God’s saving power. We fall into doubt and unbelief, and therefore handover authority to Satan. Believers are sometimes overly focused on “casting out” the devil. We need to realize that sometimes there is no devil to cast out; we just need to “cast down” imaginations. That is to say, our minds need to be renewed so we know who we are in Christ.
 
There are many ways through which Satan perpetrates his agenda of destruction in the world—but some of his most destructive warfare is waged in our minds. Satan wants us to be carnally minded (which is death) instead of being spiritually minded (which is life and peace) (see Romans 8:6). Fear thrives in a carnal mind and Satan can build up strongholds in such an environment. Faith, on the other hand, thrives in a spiritual mind, and Satan loses his grip in such an environment.
 

Overcoming Satan’s mind games

 
Ephesians 6:11 says “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
The word “wiles” in this scripture, is the Greek word methodeia. This word means “cunning arts,” “tricks and schemes,” or “mind games”. Satan likes to play with our minds! We need to put on the whole armor of God and fight him off! Verse 17 of the same chapter in Ephesians says, “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
 
To guard against Satan’s mind games, you need the helmet of salvation—which is our identity in Christ; and the sword of the spirit— which is the Word of God. You are covered by the blood of Jesus and you have the Word of God; therefore you have authority to stand your ground against the devil. Verse 18 reveals another weapon you have. It says, “praying always with all manner of prayer and supplication in the Spirit.” Continual prayer is your heavy weaponry for standing against Satan and fending off his attacks and lies. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God. Every stronghold in your minds must come down, can come down, and will come down, in Jesus name!
 
It’s time to change your thinking! See yourself the way God sees you. You are a new creature in Christ. You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. You are blessed. You are not cursed. You are redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Rise up and live your life to the fullest. You can do it! In Jesus’ name.
 
Blessings!

It’s much more than religion

 
Receiving God’s gift of salvation makes you a brand-new person with a brand-new purpose. God wipes the slate clean and gives you a fresh start. This is God’s gift to you! But it’s more than a gift—it’s an invitation to a relationship
 

Everyone is invited to this extraordinary calling.

Receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior makes you become born-again! You are born into God’s kingdom and are made a partaker of His blessing. This is God’s gift to you! But it’s more than a gift—it’s an invitation to a relationship! It’s a call to fellowship and friendship with the Creator. Better still, you can come as you are, and God will receive you and transform you to be the best He has called you to be.Yet many people have been perplexed by this idea that a person can be “born-again” and have fellowship with God. Throughout history, this subject has confounded many. Even a highly respected religious scholar asked Jesus, “How can these things be?”
 

How can these things be?

In John chapter three, we encounter a man called Nicodemus, a highly respected religious scholar and teacher of the Jewish law. Nicodemus visited Jesus for what would turn out to be an eye-opening conversation. Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” This kind of talk left Nicodemus, the highly educated teacher, very puzzled. Nicodemus then asked, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus responded, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God” (John 3:3-5). Nicodemus pondered the meaning of Jesus’ words, then curiously asked, “How can these things be?”
 
Jesus’ statements came as a surprise to Nicodemus.What Nicodemus was familiar with was the practice of religion, but Jesus was suggesting something much more! Jesus was introducing a new standard—God’s perfect standard. He said to Nicodemus, “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again’” (John 3:7). God’s standard is, “you must be born again.” But how? By acknowledging Jesus as your Savior. This acknowledgment, however, is not a religious confession—it is a commitment to a relationship!
 

God is not looking for religion in us. He is looking for a relationship with us.

There is a big difference between the two! Religion focuses on your own effort and performance—relationship focuses on what God has already done for you. Religion ends up being a mechanical observance of rules and regulations. Relationship is heartfelt devotion to a Person. Religion is fear driven while relationship is faith driven. Religion can lead to legalism; relationship always leads to love. To truly know God, we must encounter Him relationally—not religiously. God wants a genuine relationship, where Jesus Christ is the focus. If we know Jesus relationally, our lives will be significantly changed. We will know the love of God in a greater way. We will worship God passionately—without any religious pressure.
 

The essence of Jesus’ message to Nicodemus (and to all of us) is best captured in a verse that has become probably the most well-known Bible verse.

John 3:16 says:For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
 
This is God’s gesture of love toward us. God has sent out an open invitation, calling all mankind back to a relationship with Him. Whosoever dares to respond to this invitation of salvation becomes a recipient of God’s best gift to mankind—the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.
 
It’s time to encounter this life changing love relationship that God is inviting you to. Are you going to say yes to Jesus?
 
Be blessed.

It’s time you discovered the real you!

God has a packaged gift for you—but the gift must be unpacked and used for its blessing to be enjoyed! Have you unpacked your gift?
Have you discovered the treasures of God’s blessings that come with the gift of salvation? Do you know your rights and benefits as a child of God? Are you walking in the fullness of all God has made available to you? Why ask these questions? Because, it gives God great pleasure to see His children walking in the fullness of all He has made available to them, but it is only when you know what belongs to you that you can truly enjoy the blessing of God’s gift.
 
 

Many people have settled for the ordinary, in spite being in possession of an extraordinary gift!

Many people have not fully grown into what God has called them to be. They have settled for the ordinary. Have you settled for the ordinary?  The truth is, you were not made to be ordinary. You were not called to be average. You have an extraordinary calling and have been given the authority to walk in it. God has given you something special. All you need to do is unpack the gift and discover the treasure you possess. Discovering this gift from God is a journey we must all personally undertake. It is an assignment too crucial to delegate to others. It is an invitation too important to opt out of. It is, in fact, the most exciting and fulfilling quest you can ever partake in. God has a vested interest in you, and He wants you to know what belongs to you. When you discover what God has in store for you, you will step out of the ordinary and step into the life that God has ordained for you. You will be equipped and empowered to live a victorious life!
 

Receiving God’s gift of salvation makes you a brand-new person with a brand-new purpose.

God wipes the slate clean and gives you a fresh start. Your past failures are put behind you, and a new world of possibilities is placed in front of you. You become born-again! You are born into God’s kingdom and are made a partaker of His blessing. This is God’s gift to you! But it’s more than a gift—it’s an invitation to a relationship! It’s a call to fellowship and friendship with the Creator. Better still, you can come as you are, and God will receive you and transform you to be the best He has called you to be.
 

Discover the Real You

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, the Bible calls you a new creature in Christ. There is a whole new world of possibilities available to you. You have become a new caliber of person; a new species of being so to speak. The old person is gone and the new has come. In fact, the real you has come! Your real purpose, which was created by God but became corrupted in sin has been corrected by Christ. Through Christ, your life is redirected to God’s divine purpose. Your corrupted sinful past is wiped out, and God has made you a brand-new person. The real person you were born to be is revealed.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says: 

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (KJV).

This scripture establishes your identity as a believer. You are a new creature in Christ. The word “new” is translated from the Greek word kainos. This word means “unused,” or “unworn.” It also means “of a new kind,” or “unprecedented.” If you have given your life over to Christ, you are now of a new kind. You are unused and unworn. The mistakes and condemnation from your past have been forgiven. You are a new person. This is your identity in Christ! In the same verse, it says “all things have become new.” The word “become” is translated from the Greek word ginomia. This word means “to come into existence,” “to begin to be,” or “to arise.” So, being in Christ means you come into a new existence and you can arise and begin to be the very best God has called you to be. This new life in Christ is a life full of purpose and hope. There is an extraordinary calling that awaits you!

The translation of The Message (2 Corinthians 5:17) says the following:

Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets A FRESH START, is created new. The old life is gone; A NEW LIFE BURGEONS! Look at it!

Regardless of your past, when you accept Jesus Christ, you get a fresh start at life. A new life burgeons! The word burgeon means “to grow,” “to increase rapidly,” or “to flourish.” As a believer, you have this burgeoning life! You have the potential and power to grow and flourish in whatever you do. Proverbs 4:18 echoes this reality when it says, “the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day” (KJV).

Are you among the just? The just are those who have been justified through faith in Jesus Christ. Their sins have been forgiven. They have obtained the authority to become children of God. God’s promise to them is a path that shines brighter and brighter. “The longer they live, the brighter they shine” (Message translation). This is God’s promise to you.
 
If Christ is in you, your best days are ahead of you! This is how God sees you, and He wants you to see yourself in that same light. Arise and shine! You are a new creature in Christ!
 
Be blessed.

Why read this book?

I am excited about my book “New Creature in Christ”. I believe this book will be a great blessing to you. Here’s why:
 
Everyone has an inherent desire for meaning and fulfillment in life. We are all pursuing purpose. But our pursuit of purpose will end in frustration unless we encounter the God of purpose. There is a very special gift that God has given to all mankind. This gift is the ultimate revelation of purpose. It is the gateway to the victories and fulfillment we are all looking for in life. God has invested so much in us, but are we aware of what He has given us?

  3. The book will challenge you to grow in character and maturity, so you can be a fruitful steward of the opportunities God has made available to you.
 
These three elements—identity, authority, and maturity—constitute what I call the three-legged stool of a balanced and meaningful life. This “three-legged stool” will firmly ground you and position you to live the life God has ordained for you. You will be able to walk in God’s purpose, experience God’s power, and grow in God’s purity.
