Living A Purposeful Spiritual Life

Mark 12:31

1. The purpose of our relationship with God.

a. The Bible says . . .


You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Mark 12:30-31


You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11,13 e. Vision
