"Why do I exist?"
In the midst of day-to-day life, whether it’s mundane and boring, or difficult and painful, most people at some point in their lives have asked this question. Maybe you have wondered this yourself.God created you
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them . - Psalm 139:13-16 ESV
Like an artist creates a piece of artwork, God formed and fashioned you into a one-of-a-kind creation. Look around you! Each and every person on this planet is unique. God considers YOU His crowning achievement.He created you to be in His family.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God . - John 1:12 ESV
God only wants the best for us, just like most parents do,
but our nature and the evil in the world tempts us to live contrary to what God asks of us.
We sin –
ALL OF US DO
We lie, we cheat,
Ultimately, we don’t do what we were created to do – to love God and love those around us. Pride comes in, and we think that we know better than God.
Living the way that we want, sinning along the way, and ignoring God doesn’t work forever. Broken relationships, breaking the law, emotional struggles can lead us to question our choices and our lifestyle at some point.
Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again . - John 3:3
So, God sent His Son,
to live on earth and show people the way back into relationship with Him.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life . - John 3:16
Jesus was sent to bring us back into the family. He came to make a way for us to be able to relate to God again. Just like Jesus relates to God, as His Son, He wants us to have that same relationship. There is one obstacle standing in the way of our relationship with God the Father: our sin.
Jesus willingly took on our sin at the Cross.
and took the sin.
Jesus then rose from the dead 3 days later and ascended into to be with Father God. The Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) was sent from heaven to help us lead a new life in relationship with God. Now, anyone NO MATTER what their situation can ask Jesus into their life and start again in relationship with God.
You can start a new life TODAY.
DON’T have to do it alone.
God sent His Holy Spirit to lead and guide you, and just as His intention was to have a loving family that He created, other people that have started a new life with Jesus will be there to encourage and help you.
Not sure where to begin? If you want a relationship with God your Creator and Jesus your Saviour, say the below prayer out loud and from your heart.
Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God. I have sinned and I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you for paying the price for these sins. I want a new life with you. Save me and fill me with Your Holy Spirit to guide me and help me know You more.
