Pillars: Fulfill Your Purpose [Sermon Audio & Notes]

 In Podcast

[Audio coming soon]

Our mission is to help each person we encounter:

  1. Place their faith in Jesus.
  2. Fellowship as a family.
  3. Follow God’s ways.
  4. Learn to fulfill their purpose.

If you could ask God one question, what would it be? Most people in a survey said, “Why am I here?”

Why Are You Here?

Two reasons:

  1. General purpose: You were created for God’s glory and pleasure.
  2. Your assignment: God also created you, specifically, for a unique purpose.

Pastor a Scott started s great message this morning on how to fulfill your purpose!

A post shared by Watershed Church (@mywatershedchurch) on

The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom,
so that I know how to comfort the weary.
Morning by morning he wakens me
and opens my understanding to his will.
Isaiah 50:4, NLT

If you do the daily agenda, it will lead you to the long-term agenda.

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:4-5, ESV

A calling is a lifelong thing. You never retire from your calling.

Don’t Complicate It

Destiny is this: Doing what God wants you to do, and being where God wants you to be.

Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work. — John 4:34, NLT

Spiritual nourishment is more than bible study, prayer, and going to church. Spiritual nourishment comes from doing God’s will.

4 Keys to Fulfilling Your Purpose

(Stay tuned next week for the last two!)

1. You have to hear His voice.

The Lord gave me this message: — Jeremiah 1:4, NLT

“Stand up, son of man,” said the voice. “I want to speak with you.” The Spirit came into me as he spoke, and he set me on my feet. I listened carefully to his words. — Ezekiel 2:1-2, NLT

Before God ever gives you an assignment, He tells you who you are.

God tells Jeremiah three things about himself before He gives Jeremiah an assignment:

  1. He is designed. You are an original masterpiece, and you will never fulfill your assignment or realize your purpose as long as you’re trying to be someone else.
  2. He is designated. You were sanctified/set apart before you were even born. (Galatians 1:5)
  3. He is destined. You were ordained/given/appointed you to wherever God has put you.

2. Let God touch your tongue.

God deals with the prophets mouths before they can fulfill their assignments.

Then said I:
“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
But the Lord said to me:
“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Jeremiah 1:6-7, NKJV

Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: — Jeremiah 1:9, NKJV

Moreover He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that scroll. — Ezekiel 3:1-2, NKJV

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said:
“Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged.”
Isaiah 6:6-7, NKJV

Your mouth plays a major part in your assignment in two ways:

  1. What you tell others.
  2. What you tell yourself.

You’ll never fulfill your assignment or your calling until God touches your mouth.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” — Martin Luther King Jr.

You can do a lot of things, but you’ll only be satisfied if you’re fulfilling the purpose you were created for.
