The Question of Existence
March 16, 2013
Millions of people are asking questions like, “Why was I born? Why am I alive? Was I put on this earth just to go through heartache and disappointment?” Isaac Asimov, world famous astronomer and writer, once said, “As far as I can see, there is no meaning to our existence.” That is a tragic statement because life without meaning is an empty and purposeless life! Maybe you have been asking, “Why am I alive? What meaning is there to my life?”
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 16:4 (NLT), “The Lord has made everything for His own purposes.” Notice that word, “everything”. That includes you and me! You were made BY God and you were made FOR God, and you were put on this earth for His purposes. It’s in that truth, that life takes on meaning. I am here to discover a loving relationship with a personal God, who loves me and cares for every detail of my life. God wants me to be in fellowship with Him every day of my life!
God made you to love you! You were created to be loved by God. He has shown us the depth of His love for us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross for our sins and rise again from the dead. In Jesus, we can have eternal life and experience peace, forgiveness, and hope in our lives NOW! Having a hope beyond the grave infuses power and meaning in our lives. When we receive Jesus Christ by faith as our Savior and Lord, we come to realize the reason why we are here on this earth–to know God in a personal way, live for His glory, and to be in fellowship with Him all the days of our life!
Have you made that decision yet, to trust Jesus Christ as your Savior? Why not do it right NOW? Make that wonderful decision today!
“Long before He laid down the earth’s foundation, He had us in mind and settled on us as the focus of His love to be made whole and holy by His love…” Ephesians 1:4 (MSG)
