A ROYAL BIRTHDAY: CELEBRATE PURPOSE!

By ERNEST CHUKUBUDIKE ANYAFULU

A stand alone excerpt from a soon to publish pocket book “Finding Purpose…” The book answers questions that have made finding purpose yet blur to Christians.

Brief Bible Reference For Background
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

Above was the word of the Lord, so the reality of being birthed for a purpose is true even from God’s perspective.

Upon the earthly ministry of JESUS CHRIST He made reaffirmation of purpose attachment to life.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,” Luke 4:18

Note: It wasn’t recorded that Jesus celebrated His birthday but it is obvious He lived having “the why” always on course. However, the Bible is not without a birthday celebration.

Births
Clearly, birth despite the associated rigours automatically translates to joy and often than non celebration is a response.

From the case of creation, Jeremiah, Gideon, Jesus and more characters all over the Bible we see that the existence of man is but a process to have the mind of God represented on the terrestrial realm. So,  when God has an idea for the terrestrial, He often inputs it in a body and cause a birthing.

The Birth date is but a transition of a reality from the mind of God to realization.

Contrast
Every Establishment, Firm, Ministry and so on that celebrate anniversaries do fix such dates in respect to the birthing of the idea. I mean, they do not hold the celebration in honour of its idea stage, there would not be an anniversary celebration if it remained in the idea stage.
So upon the birth of ideas and continues existence, birthdays and anniversaries are rooted.

Streamlined: Human’s Birth dates
Having been birthed and have been engraced with a continued existence, humans often than not celebrates their birth. This we all do in divers ways.

Birthday celebrations often entails

  1. Gathering of loved ones
  2. Parties
  3. Humanitarian activities 
  4. Fixing dates and outings
    These and more are ways birthdays are celebrated.

The Ideal
From the Contrast above, firms as part of their anniversaries wine, dine and do a lot but HAVING A REVIEW OF THEIR JOURNEY SO FAR IN LINE WITH THIER BIRTHING VISION, RE STRATEGIZING FOR THE MILESTONES AHEAD is never underplayed nor neglected, that may not come up during the ceremony but it’s a core agenda in anniversaries.

Birth dates are sacred, they have an overwhelming power on the celebrant.
By default, the celebrant expresses the joy of it.
Yes, we celebrate being around some more on earth.
People do a lot to express this joy, such as drink and get drunk, engage in sexual exercises, eat,  go get photo shoot even as far as having it for nudity, yes! These stuffs are done by humans who believe in God, probably attends church and even may be church workers.

Some express this day by releasing sounds of fellowship to God.

Be it as it may,  Birth dates are not meant to be used against GOD for you are first HIS Idea and your existence is powered by HIM to express that reason you were birthed on that date.
Hence, amidst all form of celebration do not use same life to bring dishonour to Him.

Important
Never get too busy celebrating and neglect revisiting “the why” you exist, if establishments do not get carried away with paparazzi on anniversaries humans should do more…

  1. Birthdays are gates and spiritual protocols, by this gate transactions happen and this transactions must happen irrespective of your consciousness. Why not consciously transact to your favour? (Not coming to this reality or not believing it does not reduce it’s validity).
    Remember the transaction that happened during a birthday that took the head of John?
  2. On the occasion of your birth, empowerment in form of graces, talents, special abilities and even ministry of spirit beings was committed to back up “the why” you came on earth. Your birthday is just one of the best points to realign with your purpose. DO NOT WASTE THAT DAY!
  3. Birthdays are to celebrate alignment to purposeful living.

Summarily: More to celebrating activities being part of birth anniversaries, one should leavarage on the gateway and engage with God, “the why” on earth, X-ray level of alignment to purpose and get empowered for more.

A general purpose is to worship, you can get the book https://eca.com.ng/books/school-of-worship-introductory-edition/  to add meaning to this noble purpose.
