Have you a Purpose in Life?

One day follows another. Even weekends away from work assume predictable routines.


What meaning do you have in your life?


Do you have a purpose beyond the mere continuation of the human race?


Do some thinking!  Get back to the foundation to life, how and why we are made.  We are made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26).  This makes us quite different to the animals.  We have hopes and aspirations.  We can dream and plan and look beyond the mere animal existence.


Being made in God’s image, means we have the potential to be like Him.  It means that God wants us to accept Him as a role model.  It also means we are created with the capacity to develop our character in wisdom and knowledge, to live right and respond to the needs of others without being corrupted by self interest or evil.


What changes are you able to make to bring meaning into life, to give priority to things of eternal value?  There are things which we cannot hange, events thrust upon us that we have to bear, but we do have the ability to decide the course of action, how we will respond.


We have an invitation:  “God is calling out of the nations a people for His name” (Acts 15:14).  God certainly has a purpose in mind.  He has determined that He will intervene and take control of earth’s affairs, so that He can restore the damage that has been done to the earth and to the lives of men and women.  He intends to “fill the earth with His glory” (Numbers 14:21) and is calling upon you to join Him in this task.  To be included in this grand plan, we have to make personal changes to the way we live and the way we think;  we have to look outside of ourselves to the bigger picture of why we are here, and where mankind is going.  This involves personal transformation (Romans 12:2).


Go on!


You can do it, with God’s help and guidance.


Read your Bible every day.
