God’s Five Purposes For Your Life with Rick Warren

— If God asked you how you were going to spend the next 15 years of your life, what would you say? Thankfully, God’s plan for our lives is not a mystery. In this message, Pastor Rick Warren shows you God’s roadmap to a life well-lived — and the five purposes that God has given to those who follow him. By centering our lives around God (worship), learning to love God’s family (fellowship), cultivating spiritual maturity (discipleship), contributing something back (ministry), and telling others about God’s love (evangelism), we will build the foundation for a successful and satisfying life.

  1. 1 John 2:4 KJV — “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

    1. @Rick Waren why would I tempt the Lord to destroy me? We both know what you’re doing is against God and you’re teaching lies.

  2. God’s five purposes for your life

    1. God wants me to center my life around Him
    2. God wants me to learn to love His family
    3. God wants me to cultivate spiritual maturity
    4. God wants me to contribute something back
    5. God wants me to tell others about His love

    1. *Martha Koeswibowo* AMEN Sister. Now THAT is Godly Wisdom that has come straight from one whose truly been born again in Christ. God Bless You!

  3. Really love listening to you speak. sure wish I wasn’t 10 hours away from your meeting place

  4. Ladies and gentlemen…. something is seriously off with this teaching. It sounds like a eorks based teaching. The fact is Hezekiah had FAITH in God. He didn’t just “do everything God asked of Him”. Wrong, wrong and wrong. He had FAITH in God. Good works are the fruit of a Christian who believes in God. But NO MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY HIS OWN WORKS. We are justified by FAITH in Jesus Christ who loved us so much He gave Himself for us. “It’s not by works that no man may boast…”.

    1. Pastor rick clearly stated that Hezekiah was indeed faithful. What did the book of James state? “FAITH WITHOUT GOOD WORKS IS DEAD” – that is what pastor was trying to say. Hezekiah’s faith produced good works, and when the prophet Isaiah told him that he was about to die, Hezekiah asked the Lord to extend his life and because the Lord felt his pure intention, God added 15 more years to his life so he can continue to be a blessing to other people.

    2. “And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.” Luke 9:50

      Calling pastor rick “wrong, wrong and wrong”

      You have no idea how much he has been a blessing for those people who are still trying to figure out their identities in Christ. (their purpose)

      Ask the Lord for greater wisdom to understand His Word. Yes, you are right, the salvation of our soul does not depend on the good works. But, let your faith produce obedience that can produce good works.

      Have a blessed day brother. Let us all continue having spiritual growth. In Jesus’ Name.

    3. When I watched this video I did not hear the explaination you just gave. Yes, faith without good works is dead. I’m glad you put that into your response to my comment. Pastor Rick has many sermons that have this same theme to them though. Something is not right about his delivery of the gospel. There must be that balance you mentioned, faith in God will produce good works. Simply telling people some 5 steps to successful living is not good preaching. Looks like we may just have to agree to disagree.

    4. @Justin Wetzler i needed to say something. Faith producing good works at the end of the day is one way of looking at christianity. That was why the calvinist movement was a big deal. But at the end of the day its not as simple as “I believe in Jesus and I will automatically bear fruit”. Some people needs guides, clear steps of what it means to live a christian life. Faith in Jesus is the starting point, people who watch this video do it because they have chosen to believe In Jesus and look for answers into what it means to lead a faithful life. Additionally Saddleback I believe does not lean heavy to calvinism, thus believe that faith is something that we can lose, and is part of our responsibility to protect it wisely.

  5. Thank you pastor. Very thoughtfull and i’m very blessed of this video. I will share

  6. Glory to Lord Jesus Christ!!!

  7. I have read the book of purpose, driven life. That’s open my eyes how God’s created me and has eat use for my life. Thank you so much. I am blessed with that book.

    Greetings from Indonesia.

  8. Without you I would still be blind and self centered if you didn’t do, God bless and thanks a lot
