My Life's Purpose and Meaning


Do you know what is your purpose of life?
What or whom are you living for?
Do you what are you going to get from your path of life?
What are your priorities in life? Love, sex, work, studies, family, computer games, self satisfaction or God?
Have you ever think about these?

are you the type who work non-stop because you want to be rich and wealthy? To earn yourself a better life and to fulfill your life's dream by doin what you have always dreamt for? Or to give a better life for your family?

Or are you the sort of person who wants to be famous and known around the world? To be a famous singer or actor?

No matter what your life's purpose is, don't you ever think that what you have been doing all your life will become pointless once you are dead? No matter how much money you have earned, how many companies you own or how famous you are, you can take non of these to the grave.

Have you ever think of what lies beyond the grave? Of where are you headed after death? Will there be something more or life just end with death?

I, myself, believe in life after death. I believe that there would be a judgement on all of us after our death and the judgement will not be based on what we have achieved in life but rather on how have we lived our lives. I believe in heaven and hell, where each of us will be sent to according to how we have lived or life.

What's my purpose of life? What and whom am I living for?

Simple, I am living my life in the name of Christianity.

Sure, some of you may ridicule me or laugh but let me ask you, if living your life for Christ sucks, then why there would be so many people willing to scacrifice everything for Him? Why there would be so many missionaries travelling around the world spreading the word of Christ?

I find that living my life for Christ is much more fulfilling than living for women or money. I can find peace and love living like this. Nothing else can give what Christianity gives me. Although life would not be a bed of flowers, in Christ, I can rest assured that someone is always beside me, guiding and leading me along the path of life and I do not have to worry about where I am heading because I know my final destination is heaven.

Maybe I could not see Christ directly but i do know He is real because of faith. You could not see the air too, right?

Besides, there is nothing to lose in believing. Out of so many religions and beliefs, I find that Christianity is the most trustworthy one because it gives me what I can't find in other religions which is peace, solace, comfort and the basic things I need in life.

And most importantly, Christianity is based on love, peace and hope. And we can all agree that everything in life have to start from love.

My conclusion? Life's true meaning and purpose can only be found in Christ. He can give what money, sex and other worldly things cannot. You would not lose anything believing. Living for Christ ROCKS.
