All In Series - We all long to know why we are here, to discover our purpose. Doubt it? Consider that Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life, published just 11 years ago is included on the "best seller's" list with 30 million copies purchased. But, is it fair for pastors like Bill Hybles and Rick Warren to say that part of discovering a sense of purpose involves serving in ministry? I think it is … not because these men said it, but because says it. See Ephesians 2:10.
While I wouldn’t say that Paul means “ministry” by “good works”, I think most would agree that ministry is a category included under the heading of “good works”. Accordingly, it is not only appropriate to ask this passage about ministry, it is also appropriate to ask, “What do I expect from Ministry?” and “Am I connected to ministry?”
Ministry increases my sense of purpose.
