So Why Am I Here?

So Why Am I Here?

We are going to answer this question from the perspective of a Christian and not an unsaved person. For the unsaved person, his life will be filled with vanity, as Solomon said, “vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” Solomon’s conclusion at the end of his life is this:

For God shall bring every work into judgment with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil.” – Ecclesiastes 12:14

But for the Christian, life for him or her has new meaning after their salvation. Their life takes on purpose and meaning. They realize that they are here for a purpose, and God has a plan for their life.


What Now?

What now? 

This article is designed for new converts or even for long-time Christians who have not achieved a level of maturity in their walks with the Lord.

So what then? Now that I have become a Christian, what do I do next to please the God of my salvation?  God has told us in His Word.

But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” – II Peter 3:18

A Christian should never just “sit there.” Instead, he or she should begin to have a time each day when they study the Bible and spend time in prayer. Why is this so important? Our churches today are full of immature Christians, because they have time for everything but their daily devotions. But you will never be able to grow in the Lord as you should, unless you study God’s Word. This gives you time to learn about God and gives God time to speak to you through His Word. As you do this, you begin to see how your life is enriched by this fellowship with Jesus Christ. Plus, the other benefit of this is that you can spend time in prayer. Prayer is one of the greatest ways to see the hand of God in your life and in the lives of those that you love.


Who Am I- 1/31/2011

Following is the first installment of a weekly devotional we will be posting on all of our blogs and web media.  For some, this first installment will remind you of the simplicity and joy of the Gospel.  For others, it will be the door to a new life and perspective...

Who Am I?

I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Thy works and that my soul knoweth right well.” - Ps. 139:14

I am one of a kind. There is nobody else just like me. In spite of this, there is one problem with me: I was born with a sinful nature. This means that I will do sinful things. The Scriptures teach this truth very clearly:

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” – Romans 5:12
