I believe the core motivation for our constitution is rooted in purpose. I also believe that the energy necessary to write the most powerful document for liberty and freedom and follow through with it becoming law—even if it meant fighting for it until the death—was fueled by passion.
Without your purpose being fueled with a passion for a far greater cause than yourself, it will be impossible for you to engage life fully, if at all. God made us as living souls that has capacity to create, choose and all the while it be totally uniquely related to who we are as individuals. We do not thrive in a collectivism ideology, but in a community whereby we are free to give and receive based on our own labor and that without force, if even by a law. We are not objects that just “do stuff” for the sake of passing time, an idea that a group of elitists believe who think they know what is best for the world. Unfortunately, many Americans have fallen into this very trap and have found themselves void of purpose and passion, while wondering around in a wilderness seeking out something to quench their thirst for meaning. Materialism has failed miserably, pleasures have jolted us out of alignment like potholes on a road, and not even the bounty of food in this country has fulfilled us. We are still hungry for something far greater than any of these. Why? Because the creation cannot satisfy what only the Creator can fulfill.
Is it any wonder why it has been so easy for the ambassadors of socialism, Marxism, and Communism to become aggressive in their current agenda of seizing our liberties and freedoms? It shouldn’t surprise us. When men should be storming the streets of Washington, DC, demanding that the selling out of our liberties and freedom while committing our children to financial and moral imprisonment, and our wives to a uncertain future, they have, instead, allowed themselves to be stupefied by policy makers and media players. Many men have becoming more committed to their football team or their bottom line more than to their families. Many wives and mothers are more concerned with their coordinating outfits than the harmony of their families at home. We must get back to the true essence of purpose, and remind ourselves of what we once were truly passionate about.
When we are once again ignited about the core essence of our lives, we will not have to be told to rise up and speak out against evil. We will wake up in the middle of the night and declare, “You can’t do that!” We will not wonder whether or not we should speak out on issues; we will look for a microphone (or buy one ourselves) to speak our minds.
Sitting around and waiting for something to happen, or talking about the problem is not the usual activity of purpose driven men. Words are exchanged, understandings are attained, and lines are drawn. We don’t hesitate to fight as if “fight” is a dirty word. God Almighty has given us our freedom and conscience, and as He gives us breath, He also gives us our purpose and the passion by which to pursue it.
The core solution for America is to get right with the God of purpose. It is to repent, which means to turn around and go in the right way. When we repent and return to the right path, then, and only then, will we find the desire and the power to conquer any mountain, and stand against any foe. Not even death can stand between purpose. Why? Because death only comes after your purpose is fulfilled—when you are living it.

If you do not live your purpose, death can come at anytime to steal your knowledge of it. As Jesus said, “No man takes my life from me, I lay it down.” He was consumed with purpose, and if you are abiding in His will, fear nothing and no one. Only be strong and of good courage, for the Lord will never leave you nor forsake you.
