Now, understand, that even as goals are directed by purpose and predict choices, they also create priorities. If a new airline sets the first of January as the target date to begin service in western China, the search firm will not focus their attention on the east coast of China. That sphere of service will not be a priority. Likewise, if the goals include the objective of purchasing planes by the first of April, the financial consulting group will have to make the procurement of funds a priority so that this can happen. Purpose informs goals which define priorities.
Keep this in mind: God is the source of all purpose. His plan to save mankind was the guiding purpose behind Jesus' coming to planet earth and all that He did and said while He was here. His purpose dictated His companions, predicted His choices, created priorities in His life, determined His decisions and provided a measure for progress.
Please note: Jesus made choices that fulfilled His destined purpose. Throughout His life, Jesus was guided by the Father's predetermined will. On His baptism, He formally began to walk in that way by choosing to be baptized to "fulfill all righteousness". He who was sinless certainly did not need to be baptized for the remissions of sins, but Jesus was careful to do all that God had laid out for Him! Again, Jesus always was obedient and always stayed true to His purpose. Read what Jesus stated to John the Baptist:
Constitutional Scripture: Matthew 3:13-15 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. 14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?” 15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.
Focus Point: Now keep in mind, that Jesus purpose predicted His choices. Again and again it states that Jesus' behaved Himself in a certain manner to fulfill what God had predestined. Also, remember, that Jesus always stayed on track and in line with His Father's purpose for His time on this earth.
Constitutional Scripture: Matthew 4:12-17 Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: 15 “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles: 16 The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.” 17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (reference: Isaiah 9:1-2)
Focus Point: Now I want to inform you that having a religious mindset will be one of your greatest obstacles.
Constitutional Scripture: Matthew 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him
Make aware those who are still preaching and teaching anything but the gospel of the Kingdom that they need "to get a clue".
Preach the gospel of the Kingdom, as Jesus preached!
