Are we living with a purpose?

Are you doing things with a purpose behind it? Or are you doing things just because you’ve seen things done that way for so long? I’m at this point right now in my life where I’m questioning everything I do because I want to make sure I’m living my life full of purpose. In church sometimes we do things just because that is how generations have done them so we follow suit. Is that the right thing to do? I believe if it’s biblical then it’s the right thing to do, but if it’s nowhere to be found in the bible then are we doing these things in vain?  Wouldn’t you call this religion? Or tradition? Is that what Jesus was about?
Did He perform every single service and sermon He gave the exact same way every time? I know that we have formats to church and I’m not saying that it’s completely wrong, but I AM saying that we need to think about why we are doing such things in service.
       If we claim to be followers of the bible or followers of Christ, but yet we do things that Christ never did, than in what way are we following Christ?
       Are we following Christ, or are we following the examples of the Pharisees? I hope that in this blog post, I don’t come across in any wrong way, but I just want us all to start thinking about why we do the things we do. Let’s get our minds working and truly live out a life with purpose.
