THE MEANING OF LIFE

How do I find meaning in life?

 

Statistics indicate that over one billion people visit the Internet each

day. Of these, at least a million are searching for answers to the deeper

questions of life: Why am I here? What is my purpose? What is God like? A

phrase that is frequently used by those exploring such deeper issues is "the

meaning of life."


Gratefully, the Bible helps us understand that life's meaning is rooted in a

unique friendship. Billy Graham says, "It is the greatest discovery you will

ever make: You were created to know God and be His friend forever" (The

Journey, p. 23).


A key to understanding how you can be God's friend is to know you were

created with more than a body, mind and soul. You were created with a

spirit. Your human spirit was awakened when you were born again, enabling

you to communicate directly with God and have fellowship with Him. The

Apostle Paul says we "received the spirit of adoption by whom we cry out,

'Abba, Father'" (Romans 8: 15). "Abba" literally means "Daddy."


The heart of every person deeply longs for true friendship. Think about your

best friends and how important those relationships are. Yet human

friendships can and do fail. This became very real to me recently when the

twenty-one year old son of a close friend tragically took his own life. The

reason? The young man's closest friend, a classmate he had known for several

years, stated firmly he no longer wished to continue the friendship. The

loss was so devastating to my friend's son that life lost its meaning to

him, and he completely gave up.


Even though friends on this earth may come and go, in God you have a friend

Who will be there forever. Graham says further: "This is a staggering truth.

Think of it. The infinite, all-powerful holy God of the universe wants to be

your friend! He wants you to know him personally. He wants you to know He is

with you. He wants to comfort you when you are upset or anxious. He wants to

guide you when you face difficult decisions, and He even wants to correct

you when you are about to do something foolish or wrong" (p. 31).


Take a moment now to let this profound reality sink in. You were created to

be God's friend. This reflects the enormous heart of your wonderful Lord!

What a privilege to be one of His children, to be able to come to Him any

time, day or night, to be completely open with Him, to share your most

intimate thoughts and fears.

Key Scripture


I no longer call you servants ... but friends (John 15: 15).
