What is life for

What is life for?

Life is for living but so many of us never seem to get the life we want. Even those that we see in the media who seem to have everything to make them happy, yet they continue to search for meaning and purpose as happiness and contentment escapes them. Tragically this often ends in ruining their life by addiction or mental breakdown or even suicide.

So what is life for?

It is to know God. In the Bible Jesus Christ said,

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent”

This is the only life that is worth living. This is what life is for. It is to know God. We are created by God to be in a fulfilling life giving relationship with Him. But we have turned our back on God and have gone our own way. We think we can live without God but if we take an honest look we see the effect of this on our lives, neighbourhood, nation and the world.

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It is the Truth. Many people think the Bible has been disproved. Such people are not prepared to really think. They have made up their minds despite the evidence.

In the Bible Jesus Christ also said,

“I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly”

This abundant life only comes by our life being changed by the power of God. This is what is called eternal life.
