Lord, what is a human that you care for him,
a son of man that you think of him? Psalm 144:3 CSB
Why are you here?
Have you ever thought about it?
Why are you sucking air and taking up space on the planet?
Is there any reason for your existence; any meaning to your life?
This is probably the number one question asked by people everywhere. Do a search on the web and you will find article after article devoted to trying to answer this question. The lack of answers is what causes people to drift through life trying one thing and then chasing after another to find some reason for living; something that will make sense out of this thing called life. Multitudes will live and die without finding any purpose for their existence beyond the daily grind. At the end of their life they will look back ruefully and wonder what it was all about.
It doesn’t have to be this way, especially for the people of God. So let’s explore how we can discover the purpose of our lives in the next several posts. Finding the answer to this question is critical to living in the Reign.
