Life with Purpose

What is your purpose in life? God made you, and He made you for a purpose. Your life is no cosmic accident. God has you on this planet for a real purpose. Life is not a meaningless journey with no goal. God has a purpose in all things. That certainly includes you.

Would you like to know God's purpose for your life with absolute certainty? Well, you can. God not only wants you to know that your life has purpose, but He wants you to know exactly what that purpose is. God has revealed His purpose for your life through the Bible. This book inspired by the Spirit of God tells the purpose of God for your life. "Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31).

God made you for the praise of His glory. God made all things for His glory. You were made to bring honor and glory to God. If you live selfishly, you miss the purpose of God. That's called sin in the Bible. It means that you fall short of the glory of God. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

God has provided a way that you can bring glory to Him. The way is Jesus Christ. He is the way to a life full of purpose. God changes your heart and life through Christ. He conforms you to the likeness of Christ to the praise of His glory. The purpose of your life is the glory of God in Christ. "We who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory" (Ephesians 1:12).
