Reconnect One: What’s Your Why?July 17, 2019
What’s your why? That’s the question a ministry consultant recently asked me. We were talking about what I do every day and he asked, “What’s your why? Everyone has a why – the real motivation behind why you do what you every day. So, what’s your why?”
It’s a great question. Once you know your why, you can then discern among all the options of what and when and by whom and how – but until you know your why, you’re just going through the motions, continuing in patterns and habits without real intentionality. Intentional discipleship includes discerning our why.
Jesus’ why might be summed up in verses like:
Jesus came to do the will of the Father, or
Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, or
Jesus came to defeat the enemies of sin and death.
But in a word, Jesus’ why is you. You are Jesus’ why. So, what’s your why as a follower of the One whose why is you?
