In order to understand your purpose, you must first understand who you are! Have you ever tried to build your family tree on Ancestry.Com? Some people discovered that they are descended from a poor or working class, while others discovered they are descended from a royal ancestry. Have you ever heard the story of someone who was living in poverty, later to discover that he or she was actually a descendant of a royal and rich family? There are many stories like that, but the tragedy of our day is that billions of people in this world are living in physical, spiritual and emotional poverty because they don't know who they are!

Do you know who you are? Do you really know from whom you descend? Millions of people around the world believe that their great-great grandfather was a monkey. In South Africa we have a world heritage site called the "Cradle Of Humanity". Some people believe this was the origin of humanity.  Some time ago I visited the Maropeng museum at the so-called  "Cradle Of Humanity" and took these photos there.

It astonishes me that intelligent people can believe this! It is the more astonishing that millions of people prefer to believe this in spite of an overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary. I want to tell you the truth! Your great-great grandfather and grandmother were Adam and Eve. You were created in the image of God! You were created to be a child of God in order to be part of the family of God, in exactly the same way a child born unto you is born in your image and part of your family!

If you were a king, what does that make your children? Princes and princesses, not so? Well, this may shock you, but you were created to be a prince and princess of God, the Creator of the universe, and His Kingdom! Dear friend, if you are a member of the human race (homo sapiens) you are a descendant of the Royal Family - not just any royal family - THE Royal Family. The 'blood' of God the Creator of the universe is 'running through your veins'!

This is the very foundation of the Christian faith and we read that in the very first chapter of the Bible, Gen 1:26-28: "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;... let them have dominion over ... all the earth ... So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the ... earth.""

This dream firstly includes your relationship with Him and your spiritual well-being. However, it also includes your marriage and family life, your job and occupation, your finances, your home, yes even your sport and recreation. God's plan and purpose for your life is perfect and you are guaranteed to find perfect fulfillment therein. In fact, this is the only place where you will find perfect fulfillment. The pinnacle of fulfillment and happiness is to be found only in the centre of God's purpose and plan for your life!

If this is so, why then do so few people find their God-given purpose in life? Well, this is what the entire balance of the Bible message is all about and we want to guide you in a short and simple, but systematic manner through its truths in such a way that you will discover and realize your God-given purpose! The Bible is God's revelation of truth to humanity and in it's pages we find the true meaning and purpose of life!

One of the great truths I discovered when I realized God's plan and purpose for my own life, was that I possess spiritual power and authority through prayer. I discovered that I can influence and change people's lives and the world for the better through prayer. In fact I learned that as princes and princesses of God, God changes the world and establishes His Kingdom on earth through the prayers of His children. You can too when you realize your God-given purpose! One of the giants of the Christian faith, John Wesley, once said: "God does nothing but in answer to prayer."

So, while we guide you through an exploration of the central truths of the restoration of humanity's purpose in the Bible, we would like to pray for you that God will realize your God-given purpose in and through your life.

Having experienced something of the power of prayer, my own greatest need is for Christians to pray for me! The greatest gift anyone can give me is to pray for me! We herewith offer to pray for you, and if you have the faintest idea of the value of this offer, you will grab it with both hands! It's free!

If you want us to pray for you and you want to read more about how to discover and realize your God-given purpose, please enter your name and email address below and you will be directed to Part 2 of this article. There is no cost or obligation whatsoever involved. We will treat your information with the utmost confidentiality and will not coerce you into anything.

If you reject this invitation, it will have certain definite negative consequences in your life - and if you accept it, it will have certain definite positive consequences - but the choice remains your own! You may continue to live in spiritual and emotional poverty like you do, in which case you will probably die an unfulfilled life; or you may decide that you want to discover how you can be what God made you to be and how you can fulfill your God-given dream, today! This could undoubtedly be the most important decision you have ever made and will ever make in your entire life! I beg you, for your own sake and benefit, do not consider this invitation lightly!
That's why every one of us when we grow up, seek to find our purpose in life. We were created like that!  The day you left school or college you had to take one of the most important decisions of your life, namely, 'what am I going to do with my life?!'

There is an empty and unfulfilled vacuum in every person's life until we have found our purpose! God created us like that, and unless we earnestly seek to find our purpose in life, we will die unfulfilled!

How sad to see scores of people across all walks of life - rich and poor, young and old - living unfulfilled lives on the ash-heap of broken dreams. People are grabbing at every stalk of straw in their search for fulfillment. Some revert to alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex and crime, while others try more respectable alternatives such as music, sport, psychology, work, the internet or money - just to find that none of these things in itself can produce real fulfillment!

Fulfillment always goes hand in hand with purpose. In order to find true fulfillment you will have to find your purpose!
If your dream and your purpose are in conflict, you will never fulfill your dream! You will die an unfulfilled person! The question that follows is, how do you know what your purpose in life is?

Before we answer that question, you should ask, who determines your purpose? Your parents? Your ancestors? Your class? Your education? Yourself? The answer to this question holds the key to the discovery of your purpose!

I have good news for you! Discovering your purpose is not going to be hard at all, because your purpose was determined by your Creator!

Hi there! It's me again, Elmer Grobler. You may be wondering, what is qualifying me to teach you anything about fulfilling your dream ... Well, let me be frank with you - many wasted years of failure and unfulfilled dreams! Basically, you have two choices - you can learn yourself and in all probability make all the same mistakes I made, ending up with the multitudes of others on the ash-heap of broken dreams; or you can learn from me and avoid all the heartaches and pain. I recommend the last, but the choice is yours.
Part 1
God has a glorious purpose and magnificent dream for your life!
