So many confusing thoughts out there....is it cleaning up sins? doing a Mother Theresa? faithfully attending "church" every time the doors are open or is it something else entirely?

Is to put the ball in the back of the net and there's a greater one than Ronaldo and Messi here in us who can do that with ease.

The goal for me is to keep myself in the faith of trusting God and to keep the peace of God in my heart and mind while traveling in this valley of death. Also, to help edify others not to lose hope and to keep the faith. I also believe we were ordained to walk in good works that are from the heart to be a blessing and help to others around us. We are all in the same boat, or at least in the same sea and a rising tide lifts all boats.

To live life on earth so that people see (spiritually) the unseen God.

Which means

1 - A person must come to Christ by faith in the gospel
2 - And that person must grow in Christ to look more like Him as time progresses.

Be excellent to each other.

To 'see' the way we were meant to see, as God does...
The innocence and purity of each soul.
To be transformed by The Father's Divine Love as Jesus was....eventually to be
as close to the Father as we were in the beginning.

So far, so good... getting closer!

As good as I've seen.

To grow in love.

To be at peace with all men - because only a peaceful mind and heart can be full of love and compassion.

One other goal...

To prepare for eternal life in the presence of God.
