The God-ordained plan for the life of a follower of Jesus Christ is not the fulfillment of one singular purpose, but rather the fulfillment of the purposes that present themselves throughout the Christian journey. Jesus Christ did not save us from sin simply for us to be saved; He saved us so that we might live a life of righteousness in full obedience to all that He has commanded. Jesus Christ Himself said that He came to do the will of Him that sent Him (John 6:38). As followers of Jesus Christ fulfill the will of God throughout their Christian journey, the plans pre-ordained for them as His children will come to fruition.
God Guided Purposes: The Journey into Fulfilling Your Purpose written by Eric C. Bingham is an inspiring book which provides an in-depth look at the purposes fulfilled throughout the life of Philip, who became known as “the evangelist.” Dr. Bingham hermeneutically examines the purposes fulfilled in the life of Philip as a demonstration of how those same purposes may be fulfilled in all who proclaim to be followers of Christ.
Eric C. Bingham was raised on the southeast side of Houston, Texas, where he currently resides. After surrendering his life to Jesus Christ, he became an avid student of the Bible. This led to him becoming the overseer of multiple Bible study groups and the acceptance of his call into the gospel ministry under the late Rev. Dr. Calvin J. Abraham at the Bella Vista Missionary Baptist Church. His love for biblical studies also led to the obtainment of a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling, Master of Divinity in Biblical and Theological Studies, and a Doctorate of Ministry in Pastoral Ministries, all from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary in Evansville, Indiana.
