A Meaningful Life
By Michael Youssef, Ph D. 11/21/21
Much of our worldly pursuits in life will bring us nothing but emptiness, misery, and disappointment. A life without God’s leading is a life without purpose and meaning.
But, thanks be to God, there is a better way! A life lived in fellowship with God, a life lived under the authority of the Word of God, a life lived by the principles given to us in His Word—that life will be meaningful.
That sort of life will be purposeful. That life will be joyful and fulfilling. That life will be a blessing to you and to others. Most importantly, that life will be a blessing to God.
The good news is that those who are experiencing a personal relationship with the Son of God will not only find contentment in this life. They will know with all assurance that the day is coming when they will have perfect knowledge, perfect bodies, perfect memories, and perfect stamina. And the reason that they can have this full life is that they know who they are and to whom they belong. They know their purpose for living, and they know their ultimate destination.
Only God, His Truths, His purpose, and His Word can give your life the meaning you have always wanted.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for offering me a life of purpose, joy, and fulfillment through Christ. I pray that my life would be a blessing to You and to others as I seek to serve You alone. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33).
