I would like to talk to you about the true purpose of life from a Christian perspective.
I don’t know what you’ve been going through, but whatever your circumstance I want you to know that you have all my sympathy.
God is with you.
To reflect on this topic, I would like to share with you a fragment from the Bible:
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
(…) for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
(…) for anything that becomes visible is light.
Therefore it says,
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
| Efesios 5:1-2, 8-10, 14-15, 17
Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as an offering and sacrifice to God of fragrant scent.
Being God Himself, he gave his life and suffered the greatest opprobrium so that today we could be free and live in the freedom of his grace.
We are no longer slaves to sin and confusion.
We no longer live in darkness but in light.
By the power of the Holy Spirit we can bear the good fruit of Goodness, righteousness, and truth.
The Lord woke us up from death and now in His life we can live ours no longer for ourselves but for Him.
Dear reader, the true purpose of life is to live it with Jesus.
Jesus in his sacrifice has given us the opportunity to live a life, not just living for the purpose of living, but with a meaning and purpose worth dying for.
Let us ask the Lord to help us by his power and grace to take advantage of the time to seek with all our soul his will.
May he teach us to seek his will in our sanctification.
And live a life with an eternal purpose.
