We’ve all asked the meaning of life; we’ve all wondered what our purpose is for being placed on this big ol’ ball of mud to live for a few decades.
There are many ways you could try to explain the meaning of life, but I think the best one is to simply go to the Bible and read what God has to say about it.
Rather than everything happening by happenstance, there is a method to the supposed madness. God planned everything out way before any of us were ever here.
He knew exactly who was going to be on this planet and when. He knew everything that was going to take place with each of us. Some good, some bad, but He knew it all beforehand.
Why, you ask? Now I certainly don’t know the full answer to that, but I believe I can answer it in part.
Simply put, we were put here to worship God. We are an outpouring of His love.
God IS love, so He created human beings so He could bestow His love on them and we could, in turn, love Him back.
Of course, this is all in preparation for the eternity that He wants each of us to spend with him. He wants us all to spend forever with him in Heaven/The New Jerusalem.
The meaning of life on this planet is to prepare us for that, at least in part I think.
However, our lives in eternity will be so vastly different from anything we can fathom now that there won’t be any real comparison.
Personally, I can’t wait to get to eternity. Many days I’m so done with this life that all I can think about is how much better life in eternity will be. This life here is just a trial run after all.
THAT is what the meaning of life is, as far as I can tell anyway.
