2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
Life is so much for a gift; God has given us so many memories, relationships and opportunities. It does not matter where it may lead us. Either joy or sadness we became able to have our lives to live it as happy and joyful as we can.
But what is its purpose? Some say their life’s purpose is to be together with their family, love ones; or to have someone to be with. Others say they want to achieve their goals in life, like for example; having a job of their expertise, business that could support their needs and also including their wants. While, some wanted to be free to do whatever they want, since they believe that they only live once.
In these following passages, let me tell you that there is this greater purpose in life. Greater than these things we usually have. And this purpose was the original purpose given since the beginning of time.
God is our Creator; he created everything through the Power of His Words. All creatures, landscapes, all the vast seas and everything you see under heaven were made.
As stated in the Bible, God created everything and in the sixth day He said “Let us make man in our own image. After our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth…”(Genesis 1:26).
This proves that God had given us this life that we have to enjoy. Life made to be blessed. God created us in His own image. This means, God wanted us to live being together with Him. This is our original purpose. Our life’s purpose is living together with God.
God is Spirit (John 4:24); we are created in His image. Therefore, we have the spirit of life given by God. And unlike the other creatures of God we are the only created beings having Physical Body with the Spiritual Life. The spirit of life can only be sustained only with God. We are purposely created to live with God. Surely, apart from God our spirit will die.
This is just like a fish; it was made by God to swim. If we will try to take that fish out of the water, that fish will later die. Also, while that fish is still alive out of the water, whatever you give to that fish will not help him to sustain his life. The longer the fish is out of the water the more it dies. The only solution to this is to put the Fish back to where it should be, back to the water. Then, it will be normal again, just like nothing happened.
Same as the trees, a tree was made by God to be rooted down the soil. If you will uproot the tree it will eventually die.
This is the truth, God is a spiritual being, so as we; that is why if we are living without the presence of God we cannot find our true happiness.
This truth was hidden from us, because we became blinded (2 Corinthians 4:4); we all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The first Man was deceived by the devil and sinned against God. So, the whole mankind became separated from God, and the spirit given to us by God died (Ephesians 2:1). Then, we started living without finding true purpose and true happiness.
Since we are dead in spirit, we live being controlled by Satan. Giving us false solutions to problems we encounter; made us all believed that we can find our purpose by doing things on our own without acknowledging the presence of the Almighty God; that without God we can be happy. At these times, we had no choice but to follow Satan who is the root of all this.
Most of us experienced loneliness; find themselves empty in spite their wealth; families keep breaking, sufferings caused by having incurable diseases. Also, when faced with problems we are not able to solve it. Some of us died already never finding that true purpose and happiness.
The reason we are experiencing all of these sufferings is because we are far from God, and we cannot restore that relationship back through our own strength, knowledge, ability, philosophy. God knows we cannot do something about our dying spiritual state.
We need a solution that can end this problem for us. This is why our God, because of His great love for us sent His one and only Son Jesus, the CHRIST for us.
Jesus is the Christ and being the True Prophet, He became the proof that God is with us and made the ONLY WAY to restore back the relationship with God (John 14:6). Also being the Christ who is the only one capable for redeeming us from the sins of our past, present and future; as the True Priest, He finished everything when He died on the Cross (John 19:30). And finally, Christ being the True King conquered death in His resurrection and crushed Satan’s head (1 John 3:8); freed us from darkness to light.
This is God’s way of restoring us back to our alive spiritual state. The Spiritual Life that died brought back to life through the Lord Jesus accomplishing His mission of being the Christ. Nothing else can do all this except the Christ himself. This is the Gospel.
If you believe Jesus being the Christ, pray and accept Him in your life as your Lord and Savior. God will surely be with you. You will receive God’s purpose and will experience God’s complete guidance. Let the Lord Jesus Christ and the Gospel change your life. Witness the old things pass away and behold all things will become new.
God bless us.
Jesus is the Christ!
