People today are looking for purpose or wanting the questions answered: “Why am I here?” “Why do I exist?” To make it worse, society creates even more confusion. The reason is that morality, or what is right or wrong, changes constantly, which has created an identity crisis. We really don’t know why we exist — what our purpose is. Because of that, people are disillusioned, feeling hopeless, or becoming apathetic to this gift we have been given called life.
In order to find real purpose or answer the question, “Why do we exist,” we must decide what we believe. If you believe the world was made because it just happened, or you believe in evolution (which, by the way, takes more faith than to believe everything was created by God), then you won’t ever find the answer. Why is it, in the most prosperous country in the history of the world, people are still searching for meaning? It’s because we have not submitted to our Creator.
Genesis 1:1 says: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. If He is the Creator (the Designer), then He gives His creation purpose, a mission, the reason for living. So, we must submit ourselves to Him by receiving Jesus as our Lord. Romans 10:9-10 is the way. Only then will you find the real meaning for living. Life is worth living when we learn why we are here and Who put us here.
Just a thought,
