Ask the average Christian today, “What is God’s Ultimate Purpose?” And most will give one of four answers:
1. To save the lost.
2. To make disciples.
3. To make the world a better place.
4. To glorify God.
According to the whole sweep of Scripture, each of these answers is incorrect.
Each answer points to an aspect of God’s Purpose, but none of them constitutes the fullness of His Eternal Purpose.
The Eternal Purpose goes way beyond saving lost souls, making disciples, making the world a better place, “glorifying God and enjoying Him forever.”
Before creation and before the fall — when humans didn’t need to be saved, discipled, and the world didn’t need improvement — God had an Eternal Purpose.
Beyond creation, beyond the fall, and beyond redemption, but deep within the beating heart of God, was His Eternal Purpose.
And He’s never let go of it.
God’s Eternal Purpose is the very heart of my ministry. Unfortunately, most Christians still have no idea what it is.
In fact, the Eternal Purpose is the subtext for each of my books.
This page contains all of my work on God’s Eternal Purpose, which I call His “magnificent obsession” and “exquisite passion.”
Because the Eternal Purpose of God is so grand, so glorious, and so high, it cannot be reduced to a simple statement. All of the following resources unveil the Purpose of God from different aspects and viewpoints.
