Does Life Have a Purpose?


Does Life Have a Purpose?

Have you ever asked the questions, “Why are we here on earth?” or “What is the meaning of life?” Sure! We all have at one time or another! What is the purpose of life?  Some people may say, “To do good” or “To love one another.” Still others may say that life has no purpose or that everything in life is simply random.

There have been many times when I have struggled with trying to determine my purpose in life. There have been times when I have been knocked down HARD. These tough times have actually been the best time for me to reflect on my true purpose in life.

I believe that God’s Word guided us to the truth. God’s Word teaches us that every person was created to know and love God personally. Life is meaningless without God, but with God’s love expressed to us through His Son, Jesus life is full of meaning and purpose!

God has a plan for you! “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11). In the good times and bad times, God is working in your life, for your good!” We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose!” (Romans 8:28)

I believe that our fundamental purpose in life is to be loved by God. Jesus said, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.” (John 15:16-17) What can we do with the love of Jesus? Live in His Love! Share His love!

In the Love of Jesus,
Pastor Steve Maske
