Purpose Greater Than Life Itself

Is that for which you will live your life actually greater than your life? Your life is short. Sure, it’s 70 to 100 years, more or less, as I like to say, but that is what James calls “a vapor that appeareth for a little time and vanisheth away.” Even with that, we don’t know how long we have to live. For your life to have meaning, you’ve got to invest it in something that is of greater value than your life or you are pouring your life down the drain as to its meaning. Your only choice is to live your life for something that is eternal rather than what is temporal. What might make it hard is that you are expected to do that by faith. You are expected to believe the Bible and do what it says, because it is God’s Word. If you do, your life will have meaning. If you don’t, it won’t. Maybe you’ve visited an old cemetery before and looked at the tombstones. No one remembers most of these people and if they do, they don’t care. If they did care, it wouldn’t make any difference to the people buried there. They will never know the moment of appreciation you paid to them. Furthermore, God says that all of this will be forgotten. Those separated from God forever will be forgotten in Hell. You know how disappointing it is for people to stop taking notice of you or seeming to care whether you exist or not. When you live by faith and please God, you know that God cares about you. If He does, then you’ve got something for all eternity. That’s the way to make your life worth the most it can.
