What is the PURPOSE of Life? (The $10,000 Question!)

What is the Purpose of Life... and Can We Find Some Type of Instructions on How to Live?

What is the Purpose of Life... and Can We Find Some Type of Instructions on How to Live?

Whenever you buy or get something expensive in life… whether it is a new car, a entertainment stand you have to put together, or anything valuable… one of the FIRST things you typically do is READ the instructions that the manufacturer gives you. (unless you’re a true alpha male like your’s truly & don’t need instructions – LOL!)

In some cases, instructions give you a way to build something in the shortest amount of time…  and in other cases instructions tell you how to use something correctly, so it won’t BREAK down on you.

Instructions help us to figure out the complicated… and to build or use the unknown… so that we are not confused, lost, bewildered, and puzzled… because we know EXACTLY what to do!

I believe the same is true with this life that we live. There are MANY brothers and sisters in Christ out there who are lost in life… they are depressed by circumstances around them… they are puzzled at why they have not gone further in life… they are confused at why life is SO unfulfilling for them.

Why are many people like this leading “meaningless” existences in their own eyes…? I believe it is because they lack PURPOSE.

If you do not know what your purpose in life is (from the manufacter’s point of view)… then you are like a huge ship that is launched from a harbor without any navigation or compasses. Sooner or later, a ship like that will either (1) wander around aimlessly and NEVER reach it’s destination… or (2) crash into something.

Too many of us are wandering around this life without a compass… and we are wandering around aimlessly in life… and perhaps we are crashing and colliding into painful objects along the way.

But what if I were to tell you that there is a map that we can follow in life? What if I were to tell you there are instructions that we can receive that will lead us into our purpose?

When God (our manufacterer) originally created Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:26)… He BLESSED them… and said that they were GOOD… and He created them with 4 main purposes in life. You ready to hear what those purposes were?

(1) You are created in God’s image to have RELATIONSHIP and walk with Him. (Gen. 1:26, Gen. 3:8)
(2) You are created to have DOMINION & authority over the earth. (Gen. 1:26)
(3) You are created to WORK (Gen. 2:15)
(4) You are created to have FELLOWSHIP with people. (Gen. 2:18-21)

If you understand these purposes… life WILL be fulfilling. And don’t get scared at the WORK part. It is important for men and women to do meaningful work that they enjoy… and not be confined to soul-killing jobs that they hate!

Let me know what you think with your comments… and until next time, be blessed and walk in God’s abundance today!
