7504 - The Pupose of Life

Listen, read, and comment

Men and women of all positions of life are brought to those quiet moments of reflection in which they ask themselves, “What is the purpose of life?” “What am I supposed to accomplish in this life?”

Jesus was able to say to His Father on the night before His crucifixion, “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:4).

Our creator, the God of Heaven and earth, had a purpose in mind when He fashioned mankind and breathed into Him the breath of life (Gen 2:7). He says (Psalm 139): "I created you, I knit you together ... You have never been hidden from me. I numbered your days even before you were born. I have known your actions, and your inner thoughts, since you were conceived. Even before you utter a word, I know what you're going to say."

Even though we are limited and He is infinite; even though we are creatures of flesh and He is Spirit; even though we have come out of sin and He is pure and holy; and even though we do not deserve this relationship, God makes it possible out of His grace and mercy.
