Why am I here?
Israel’s King Solomon faced a similar struggle. Solomon pursued happiness and fulfillment in life through human means such as education and material things. And by human standards he was wildly successful. In fact, the whole world knew of Solomon’s wisdom and wealth.
But Solomon failed to find meaning in all his earthly pursuits (Ecclesiastes 1:2). After a lifetime of collecting people, wealth, power, and experiences Solomon discovered that man’s sole purpose is to “fear God and keep His commandments” (Ecclesiastes 12:13). He could have saved himself a lot of trouble if he had turned to God’s Word for the answer.
16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16, NIV
Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.’”
Isaiah 43:17, NLT
“His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. Acts 17:27, NLT
Your life has meaning and purpose.
You were made by God and for God. He created you for His glory. God wants you to reach out to Him. Your purpose in life is to fulfill the role for which you were created – to glorify and worship the Creator in a relationship with Him.
Does your life feel meaningless? Have you entered into a saving relationship with God?
If you know Jesus, does your life bring Him glory every day?
