When we call time out from the grind of making a living, when we hop off our entertainment carousels, we take time to really think. And we inevitably start asking basic questions. Why am I here? What is my purpose for existence? What is the meaning of life? These are nagging persistent questions? They can drive us to despair. Or the answers can give us unbounded hope.
Unfortunately, despair is more prevalent. We see it on the faces of kids in the street, mothers in the grocery store, and dad’s at the office. And no wonder, if the human race crawled out of the primeval slime and is destined to find its end six feet under, what is the use? Tombstones, which celebrate life with two dates: birth and death, tell the tale. We live. We die. That’s it.
The Bible sheds more positive light on our lives. It tells us why we were put on this earth. Men and women were placed on this lush outpost in a magnificent universe “that they should seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:27). Our mission is to seek out the Author of life. Who can better inform our greatest longings? Our search for meaning and purpose ends in Him.
