Meaning in Life

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, so that we should walk in them.

— Ephesians 2:10

All of our philosophies have degenerated into irra­tionalism as man has discovered that apart from revelation he cannot find meaning or significance in life.

If you want to find significance and purpose and meaning in life, whether you are a man or a woman, there is only one place to find it. I don’t care what siren songs are sung and what lies are told, the only place you will find significance and meaning in life is right in the center of God’s will for you. Outside of that, no matter how appealing the lie may appear, you will finally find that it will turn to ashes in your mouth.

Aldous Huxley, the renowned agnostic evolutionist of the twentieth century, said he believed in the meaninglessness of the world. Huxley said he and his contemporaries objected to the idea that the universe has meaning—that there is a God—because this idea interfered with their sexual freedom.

If life has no purpose, it has no meaning and consequently, it has no significance. No wonder that today suicide is the second major cause of death among young people. Suicide becomes a tempting option when life has no meaning.

But life does have purpose—we were created to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.

Question to ponder:
Since we are His workmanship, what good works do you think He may want you to do today?
