As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. (John 17:18)

"What's God's plan for my life?" We've all asked that question at some time or another. We're all eager to fulfill the divine purpose for our lives, but we need direction in fining out what that plan is.

The truth is, God never intended for us to be in the dark about His plan for us. He left us clear, written instructions. What's more, He gave us a pattern to follow so we could see how to carry out those instructions.

The pattern is Jesus. Our call is to continue His ministry. I know that sounds like a tall order, but it's true. Jesus said so in John 17:18.

Once we realize Jesus is the pattern, we need to find out exactly what Jesus was sent to do. Well, the Bible's pretty clear: "The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work." (1 John 3:8).

Think about that. You're called to finish what Jesus began: to destroy Satan's work on the earth. That is the job God wants us to do, and we do it the same way Jesus did. After all, He promised, "Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things that these, because I am going to the Father." (1 John 14:12)

In short, Jesus' ministry was comprised of three functions: 1) He healed the sick, 2) He cast out demons, and 3) He preached the good news.

Now, I know it's easy to do the preaching and not the other two works. However, the Bible was never designed to be preached without the proof that Jesus is alive today. Jesus didn't just say, "God loves you." He demonstrated it. He proved the truth of what He was saying by operating in the supernatural power of God.

He expects us to do the same. That's God's plan for your life!
