A Biblical Look at Life's Purpose

When we confess with our mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in our hearts that God rose him from the dead our lives change. No longer is life about us but Christ that lives in us

"I have been cr
ucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. Galations 2:20

1. God has created us for His pleasure - not our own.

“You are worthy O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for You have created all
things, and for Your pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11)

2. Christ died for us. (the penalty for mankind's sin) we now live for him - not for ourselves.

(2 Corinthians 15-16) "And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised.

From now on, then, we do not know anyone in a purely human way. Even if we have known Christ in a purely human way, yet now we no longer know Him in this way. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come."

3.We are his workmanship - created to do good works and live accordingly.

“for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before
ordained that we should walk in them” Ephesians 2:10

4. We are called to represent him as "ambassadors for Christ" and are to be reconciled (To reestablish a close relationship) to God.

(2 Corinthians 5:20) We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
