Your Purpose

One of my fellow teachers at the MTC asked the senior missionaries an interesting question. I wanted to ask you the same question and see what answers we come up with.

As a missionary, you are given the purpose statement: "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored Gospel through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end."

If there is anything that you are wondering if it is a good missionary activity, you can always refer back to that statement and ask yourself, "Will this help me fulfill my purpose as a missionary?"

The question that my fellow teacher asked was, "What is 'our purpose' for life?"

Please reply with your thoughts and some scriptures if you'd like.
