Countless books have been written on the subject regarding mankind’s unequivocal purpose in life. From self-help to self-seeking, a plethora of #1 Best Sellers have lined the bookshelves of America. With each passing decade, new emerging ideologies spring up, proclaiming to hold the secrets to one’s ultimate personal success.
Within these inexhaustible amount of resources, they all appear to have one common denominator. And that being, they all fall short! Unless grounded in the Word of God, there is no written word from mankind suitable to illuminate the truth as God has revealed to us. Our purpose in life is but one and it is contrary to all worldly teachings! Apart from the revelation of the Holy Spirit into a person’s life, all such attempts in seeking the meaning of life will merely result in deception, discouragement, and despair.
So let us now examine the unmistakable. Let’s turn to God’s Word and seek out His divine purpose for our individual lives:
Micah 6:8: “O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
Deuteronomy 10:12: “And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.”
Mark 12:29-30: “Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The LORD our God is the on and only LORD. And you must love the LORD you God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’”
Among many Christian believers today, there seems to be a great multitude of persons having lost sight of the unmistakable purpose of our being. Holiness of life in our relationship with God has been replaced with an emphasis of activities and services for God. Movements and spiritual experiences have become focal points of spirituality, rather than inward intimacy with the Almighty. Lest we never forget, rituals and activities are a poor substitute for having an authentic relationship with God.
Paul gave emphatic warning to the Church in Rome as too the spiritual condition of mankind apart from having a personal intimate relationship with God the Father through Christ Jesus the Son.
Romans 3:10-18: “No one is righteous – not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.”
With the ever increasing multitudes of people who are searching for truth and looking for meaning within their lives, our Christian testimony should be unmistakable and our purpose in this life undeniable.
Or more simply put… Let the unmistakable become the undeniable in our lives!
