Jesus Christ Is The Source of Purpose & Meaning In Life, Abundant Life,…
Many people attempt to reach God and find purpose & meaning by being a good religious person. Or they try philosophy, or being a good moral person. The problem is that religion and these other things will never solve our greatest problem of having a broken relationship with God because of our sins. Religion, philosophy, morality,… will also never fulfill our greatest needs (salvation, love, acceptance…), and ultimately they will never give us the purpose & meaning in life we all seek.
Whatever you are lacking or whatever is missing in your life, Jesus wants to give to you in overflowing measure. Jesus is “The Way, The Truth, and The Life” (John 14:6), and Jesus is the way to having a restored relationship with God, salvation, and ultimately eternal life in heaven (John 14:6, John 3:16). Jesus is The Source of purpose & meaning in life, and the abundant life that God wants to give us.
Go to Jesus with your emptiness, your needs or hurts or problems… He is The Source. He wants to give you great purpose & meaning in life, and to meet all of your needs. Jesus also wants to help you to be the very best person you can be… a person of high quality, high integrity, and a person of glory (full of His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control), and a person of honor.
You will never have the full abundant life and purpose & meaning in life that Jesus wants you to have unless you are walking obediently with Him in an intimate and loving fellowship, because Jesus IS the abundant life.
