Living for God is not only our sacred privilege as Christians, but it is the most fulfilling, rewarding life possible. In the heart of every Christian, God has placed sacred motives—compelling reasons to live for and serve Him "as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart."
Sometimes in the midst of our service, we lose sight of why we do what we do. We slip into a pattern of empty routines or misguided ambition. In these pages, you will be challenged to take a thorough spiritual inventory—to allow the Holy Spirit of God to explore the deepest motives of your soul and to reignite your passion to serve for what pleases Him.
