If there is no point to life, no reason to be here, no life after death, no purpose, then why in the first place are we here?
It stands to reason that after all the suffering that this life entails, there must be something happening when we die. Otherwise, what’s the point?
We feel pain in our bodies. We feel pain in our hearts. Some of us suffer, some a little bit, some a great deal. Some of us live with disaster after disaster in our families and some for generations. You may think you are cursed. Well, perhaps that’s just what it is. If there is no purpose to this life, and no life after death, I ask again, then why all this suffering? To get to where? To just suffer through this life, and then be no more? To come back as a dog or cat or caterpillar? What a scam! But there is an answer to all these questions!
There IS a purpose to life, and there is a greater being who guides us toward that purpose and beyond. There is hope in a dying and immoral world. There is success for what may seem a lost and hopeless life, for those who genuinely seek truth and freedom.
There is, however, only one way to this salvation from the bondage of suffering, loneliness, poverty, sickness, infirmity, loss and grief and the hopelessness that life can bring. There is only one way to find the truth about your purpose here on this planet, and to be able to walk in freedom.
Firstly, we begin with the fact that we are a spirit, we have a soul (mind) and we live in a body.
The spirit is our real self. It will live forever. Our soul is where all information is stored, mulled over, and where decisions are made. All of this lives in an earthly body, which when the time comes will drop off and die and our spirit will spend it’s time in eternity. The condition of our spirit at point of death, determines where we will spend eternity.
Because we have the freedom to make decisions we are given the chance to learn about God, His love for us, and what He achieved for us. We are given the choice to accept Him or deny Him. He is our Creator and our Redeemer. If we are genuinely searching for the meaning of life and the truth about life, He (God) will reveal Himself to us. We are free then, to choose to walk with Him or not.
Jesus said : I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no-one comes to the Father, but through Me ~ John 14:6.
Jesus also says to come to Him, if you are weary with life, and greatly burdened, and that He will give you rest, because He is the resurrection and life to all who believe in Him, and even if you die, you shall live forever with Him. He came for those who are in darkness, that they may believe in Him and live in the light ~ Matthew 11:28 ~ John 11:25,26 ~ John 12:46
Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, He died for us, and He rose from the dead, and then sent His helper, His Holy Spirit, to strengthen us, guide us, comfort us, give us boldness, and be a constant companion, a true friend, who can be relied upon in any situation life brings.
God’s great love for us is summed up in this verse from the Gospel of John :
“For God so loved the world (that’s you and me) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” ~ John 3:16
So choose life!
Choose to ask Jesus to come and live in your heart and walk with you and help you to succeed in life with the help of His Holy Spirit.
Choose life, because the alternative is not pleasant. Jesus says in the Gospels, that if we deny Him, our Father who is in heaven, will deny us.
Choose life, because Jesus is the resurrection and the life, and if you believe in Him, you will never die!
