Daily Bible Study with Purpose

“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:4


Are you living a life that reflects God’s principles? That is to say, His values, ethics, laws, moralities, and doctrines. God requires consistency in our obedience, not by our convenience. His instruction and command to us are to live out His righteous laws.
It is true that since God took on flesh and sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to save us that we are no longer under the law but grace. (Romans, 6:14). However, our no longer being under the law does not give us a pass to sin. 
Romans 6:17-18, But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.” 
God gives us Ten of His commandments in Exodus 20. When one of the Pharisees tested Jesus by asking Him which commandment was the greatest: 
“Jesus replied: And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”- Matthew 22:37-40
Do you love God enough to study and learn His commandments?
Knowing and believing all that God has done for us, we should want to obey his commands and hide them in our hearts and meditate and live by them. The Bible is all about God, and there is nothing we need to do to receive what He has already done. Isn’t that incredible? God’s grace and mercy are free to those who will receive Him.

This year Our Given Purpose® is focused on dealing with the root of our anger, arrogance, pride, and fear; through testimonies, interviews, devotionals, and unique collaborations.

Let’s prepare to strip down, humble ourselves, and do the work:


🔻 We have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 3:16 

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?


🔻What is the wickedness in your life? What are the infectious carriers that cause your body to react abnormally to what we know of Christ? How long will we let this fever be present and continue to kill off the morally right, pure, that which is holy within us? 

Let the temperature run its course towards healing. There is a specific treatment for what ails us if we acknowledge that it is a problem and that God is the solution.


A Word From the Host

“I am honored to share my story with you as these weekly videos continue. Talking about my past transgressions and witnessing to God’s healing and deliverance is therapeutic for me. 

This is my journey through pain, unforgiveness, anger, pride, arrogance, and fear. I believe the difficult situations I grew through helped me develop this strategy I am sharing with you. I continue to learn and become stronger in my faith. The relationship God sought to cultivate with me is transcendent. 

My Past:

→When I was 25 years old, my outer appearance defined me. I struggled with my identity because the purpose of life was abandoned to a rebellious worldly ambition. I didn’t know who I was. It took ten years before I woke up to the reality that I was dead in life. No matter the number of good deeds I performed, nothing would gain me any satisfaction until I surrendered to God. I was involved in a culture of self-deprecating, self-consuming, and irrational behavior. I repressed the feelings of anger and fear; that led to rebellious acts against God. With no direction or significance I went on a dead-end journey to seek meaning in a life created by my circumstances.

 →It is now my passion to warn others against the travails of this world, and the proverbial carrots dangled overhead. Through prayer, meditation, education, and overall a real relationship with God, I offer a ministry dedicated to helping others reclaim their inheritance.

Greetings Purposeful Family!

I’ve read that vision without wisdom is an unfinished project. How many unfinished things do you have right now?

This week will center around investment. Investing in ourselves, our careers, and most importantly our relationship with God. It is always a good time to evaluate what we’re doing and who we’re following.

The scriptures listed below are the frame of this podcast. Criticism is something I had to develop strength in. I was already an introvert. My coming out of my shell was difficult. Taking criticism under advisement was the next step. I needed to trust God to put mentors in my life who saw the bigger picture of this ministry.

I pray you will take this podcast, under advisement. Identify areas the enemy has a foothold. Review the advice you’ve received from loved ones. Seek God’s guidance in all you do.



Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 7:5-8, Proverbs 13:1, Proverbs 17:10, Proverbs 27:5
