Unstoppable (Part 27)

Dalton Sim


Redefining purpose as we know it. There has been much disruption in the past 2 years due to the pandemic. As the adrenaline rush that many leaders found themselves in during the first weeks of the crisis settles, important questions related to the purpose arise, for example, the need for physical office space post covid, or even certain job functions. For individuals, questions arise to the purpose of work and redefining the purpose in what they are doing. 

Are you struggling to find purpose in your life or even trying to answer the question of purpose? 

In all that we do, we seek purpose for it brings meaning into the lives we lead. We pursue things in the natural and ask God to be there and bless it. What if we have it all backwards, that our sole purpose is the pursuit of God Himself and in Him we are satiated and find fulfillment in life.


  1. You may choose to respond to any one of the questions below.

    a. What does it mean to seek the purpose of something? Or

    b. If you put yourself in the shoes of someone who doesn’t know God, what do you think he/she needs to see and understand about God that will make him/her seek Him above all else? 

  2. Read Acts 17:16-32.

    a. In Acts 17:16, “..the city was full of idols”. We live in a world that seeks and steals our attention and hearts every waking minute. Reflect on what has consumed your pursuit and purpose in life versus your pursuit of God himself.

    b. Read Matthew 6:33. How will changing your focus to pursue God first affect how you do things or the person you become? Reflect on a time when you pursued God first, what was the outcome?

  3. Is the world in the new testament any different than today when it comes to telling or hearing news? Consider the actions of apostle Paul, he took advantage of the situation and shared about the Good News, God himself (Acts 17:22-29).

    What are some helpful ways to initiate a discussion of spiritual things? Share your experience and what you have learned in the process. 

  4. Does God fit into your story or do you fit into His? What do you think are the different outcomes for each circumstance?


“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” – C.S. Lewis


If you’re seeking purpose, there is nothing higher that could be worth our pursuit than God Himself. In what area of your life is God calling you to seek, feel your way toward it and eventually find God?

It might just begin with something as small as asking the Lord this question: “God, where are You in _______?”

  • …my workplace? my career? my studies?
  • …my financial decisions?
  • …my marriage? my relationship? my singlehood?
  • …my parenting?

Be ready to hear HIS answer to you.

The next time you are in a situation when news of any kind is shared to the interest of listening ears, consider doing what the apostle Paul did, share about God.


And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring’.” – Acts 17:26-28
