Why Do I Exist?
Does my life really have any significance?
If you are reading this, you are a representative of the human dimension and you wrestle, as we all do, with one of the greatest questions of life. What in the world is life all about anyway? what are we doing spinning around on this planet at almost 1,100 miles per hour, tilted at a 23 degree axis? Why aren’t we flying off into the universe? what force is keeping the members of this planet earthbound? Is gravity really all here is to believe in? Certainly, all of us have asked ourselves these questions. Most of the human race are card-carrying members of the “Search for the Meaning of Life Club”. Pondering the questions of the human dilemma and struggling for the right answers in a world that seems bent on hiding the truth about the here, the now, and the hereafter seem common to us all.
The fact is, many do not know why there are here and what there are here for. They are living a meaningless life, simply existing. What a sad way to live! There is more to live for than merely satisfying the physical and even intellectual needs of the body and mind.
The God who created you fully expects you to live your life for a higher purpose than just pleasing yourself. He wants you to glorify Him. The Bible says these words, “That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” Romans 15:6
You are so important to God that He invites you to have a personal fellowship with Him. The Bible tells us that God has a wonderful purpose for each and every life. The purpose begins with experiencing God’s love- and at that moment- being made into the image of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Here is how the Bible says it, “Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
You and I were created to bear the image of Jesus Christ and to make the truth of God known to all men.
When Jesus was on the earth, He called his disciples to become a part of an incredible mission. That mission was finding people whose lives had no meaning- people who were cut off from God through sin- and restoring them to a loving fellowship with their Creator through the dead, burial, and resurrection of His Son. You have a reason to exist- a wonderful cosmic purpose of life- and you can achieve direction in life by connecting with Jesus Christ. He will give you a reason to exist- a significant purpose for living.
