What is our life’s meaning? (Purpose)

Reading Time: 4 minutes

The Biblical worldview believes that our ultimate purpose in life on earth is to make the choice to prepare for our eternal life by accepting God’s only begotten Son, Christ Jesus, as savior from our sins.

God told us that everything (including you and me) was made for a purpose. [Proverbs 16:4

God created us for His pleasure. [Revelation 4:11]

God’s unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 1:5]

We are to choose to become more and more like Christ Jesus and reflect His glory. [2 Corinthians 3:18]

God invites us to participate in the greatest, largest, most diverse, and most significant cause in history – his kingdom by sharing His love with everyone. [1 Peter 3:15]

We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. [ Romans 8:28]

God tells us to test ourselves and to examine our faith to see if it is placed into the correct things. [2 Corinthians 13:5]

God told us to study and gain knowledge and to not be ignorant of fact and to refuse foolish and ignorant speculations. [Proverbs 4:5, 7; 16:16: 2 Timothy 2:23]

1 Thessalonians 4:7 tells us that God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification.

1 Timothy 4:7 – God tells us to have nothing to do with worldly myths and fables and to discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness.

1 Peter 2:21 – God informs us that our purpose is to use Christ Jesus as an example and to follow in Christ Jesus teachings.

Jesus tells us in John 15:9-17 and Luke 10:25-37 that our purpose is to love God with all our heart and to also love one another.
We are informed by Jesus that we are to share life with each other and with Him. [Matthew 18:20]

The Atheist worldview believes that purpose in a person’s life is an individual choice; that there is no set purpose for the whole nor for the individual.

Are you willing to live with a worldview which is full of doubt, contradiction and inconsistency within it? I’m not. I have the Biblical worldview as my worldview because it has been, is and always will be rational, logical, non-contradictory, consistent and scientifically confirmed because it is based on absolute truth within the perfect love of God through His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus.

It is your choice to make whether or not to change your worldview. I suggest that you make a wise choice and go with a worldview which is based on absolute truth, is rational, logical, non-contradictory, consistent and scientifically confirmed before it’s too late.

Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
James 4:14

“Two things awe me most, the starry sky above me and the moral law within me.”
Immanuel Kant

“He [God] counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them.”
Psalms 147:4

“God, when I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field, The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, Whatever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth!”
Psalms 8:3-9

“From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.”
Romans 1:20

“For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles [non Jewish people], who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.”
Romans 2:13-16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16
