This planet on which we live, the Sun, the Moon, rain, vegetation, the air that we breathe and the finely balanced eco system that we need for life to be sustained is truly remarkable. To watch the birth of a baby, to stand on top of a mountain or to gaze at the stars at night fills most of us with awe and wonder and yet we can still ask the question, “What is the point?”, or to put it less negatively, “What is the purpose?”
Life raises many questions doesn’t it, “Where do we come from?” and Where are we going?”, “How did the universe come into being?”, “How did life come about?”, and “What happens when we die?”. Many people claim to have answers to most of these questions, but if we don’t have the correct answers to those questions, then we cannot come to the right conclusion regarding the point or purpose of life. For those who hold to an atheistic view of life for instance, there can be no point: life just happened and therefore there can be no purpose.
As Christians, we believe that the Bible holds the correct answers to all of the above questions. Therefore we know where we come from, we know why we are here and we know where we are going! Interestingly, all the answers we find in the Bible point us to Jesus Christ who said in John’s gospel, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.” (John 14:6). What did Jesus mean by that? In previous Guest Services we have looked at what Jesus meant by The Way and The Truth and at the Guest Service in September we looked at His statement about being The Life.
“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Jesus Christ (circa AD 30).
Why are you here? Where are you going? We believe the Bible can answer those questions for you. Let us show you the answers from God’s written Word, the Bible. Get the audio of this message from the sermons section of the website.
