I had the joy of singing a wonderful song in church today called “Because He Lives.” Many of you are familiar with this great worship song.
If you have ever questioned the meaning or purpose of your life, this song sums it up well. No doubt the Lord used each of us in a multitude of ways, but without a foundation in our life, it can still seem in vain.
Why do we do what we do?
If you have this thought, reflect over the lyric “life is worth the living, just because He lives.” If Jesus simply died on the cross, His death would have been virtually meaningless. But because Jesus rose from the grave and conquered sin and death once and for all, it makes our life truly worth living.
So what is our purpose and meaning? It is to glorify Jesus through our life, knowing that we will live in Heaven with Him for all eternity when we make Him the king of our life. It means that whatever job we have, however much money is in our bank account, or whatever our family life looks like, we stand on the rock of Christ with confidence that our life has meaning and purpose. It is because we live for Him and not ourselves.
With this in mind, celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus and live every moment of your life for Him. Only then will you truly meet the purpose of your life. Live for Him, because He lives for you!
