Why do I exist? Does my life have any significance? Who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing? Where am I going? What is living all about anyway?
Are you living a meaningful life? Or is ‘meaning in life’! simply the pursuit of physical and intellectual satisfaction and nothing more? Or do you take a ‘fatalist’ approach to life – just eat, drink, enjoy – for nothing really matters?
THE REALITY OF GOD, DESIGN & PURPOSE
Astounding facts about creation
All of creation, the entire universe is nothing but a huge signpost saying God is real, He has designed everything and He has a purpose for all that he created.
Romans 1: 20 By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see; eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his Divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. (message Bible)
Psalm 19: 1-3
- The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.
- Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.
- There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
Psalms 8: 3-4
3. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4. What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
GOD, OUR CREATOR IS INFINITELY GREAT
Psalms 147: 4,5
4. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.
5. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
Isaiah 40: 25,26
25. “To whom then will you liken Me, Or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One.
26. Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He call them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; Not one is missing.
Romans 11: 33
Astounding facts about you
You were created by God, uniquely designed by Him for a purpose here on earth!
TWO MAIN PURPOSE GOD CREATED YOU FOR:
1. For you to personally relate to God

A personal relationship with God is possible because of Jesus.
John 1: 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one who created all things, became a man, came into this world, and died on the Cross – bearing the sin, the shame, the pain of the whole world. All our wrong doing and judgment of our sins was upon Him. He was buried and He rose up the third day! He ascended back into heaven and is alive today. He has the power to forgive sin for everyone who believes in Him.
The meaning of life begins when you meet with the One who is the Creator of life – the Lord Jesus Christ.
