Every life should have a target, a bullseye, a goal, an aim and any healthy individual I think would want the following for his life: You want to live the best life you can. Be the best person you can be. Have the best influence you can have. Leave the best legacy you can. In order to do that, you’ve got to aim high. I am convinced the reason most people will live a life of little consequence, little influence, and little impact is because they aimed too low. We should all aim high with the life that God has given us. Where should our aim be and how high should it go? What your heart loves the most and what your mind thinks about the most will determine the life that you live. So, every day where should we be aiming? You aim at what you look at, so how can we know that we are looking at the right target and we are looking at the right altitude?
The book of Colossians says that God is the creator and controller of the universe - a guardian of the galaxy, if you will. And as guardian of the galaxy, He doesn’t need any help. That is the theme of this book of the Bible that we are going to be studying over the next several weeks. The whole book can be summed up in one half of one verse in Colossians 3:11, “...Christ is all, and is in all.” Just as this guardian of the galaxy has control of this universe, so He wants to be in control of your life and mine. He doesn’t just give us life so that we can live, but He tells us how He wants us to live.
