Two and a half years ago I lead a "40 Days of Purpose" small group for my church. The first part of each of the 6 lessons was on DVD and was presented by Rick Warren. In the first leson he discussed that God had a purpose for our lives.....and that was about it for that lesson. At the end of the DVD part he asked this question,
"If you want this purpose for your life, why don't you accept Christ now?"
There was so mention previously of what this meant, or the why the cross was necessary (substituitonary atonement in other words), or repentance, or anything. In light of this, I thought the following was a great question. I found it at http://christianresearchnetwork.com
Did Jesus die for your sins or did he die so that you can discover your purpose?
Don't I wish every church would challenge their congregants to as to what the Biblical answer to this question is.
