21.12.2019 Why do we exist?

Colossians 1:16 For everything that is in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, be it thrones or rulers or principalities or powers, was created in him: everything was created by him and for him.

Why do we exist? Every person often asks this question in his life. We Christians, who know the wording of the Bible, find the answer in it: We are made for the glory of God, without him we can do nothing, we are nothing, find no meaning in our existence. We are made for him by him. Even before we were in the womb, God chose us to live for him.

Ephesians 1: 4 as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy and faultless before him in love.

John 15: 6 If you don’t stay in me, you’re like dry branches that can only be thrown into the fire. If you stay in me and I in you, you can ask for anything and it will be given to you. My father is honored by you when you bear fruit and become my followers – fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Everything is for the glory of God, it is the way, the truth and the light. Nothing is really important in life, not work, not sport, not things we are attached to in everyday life !! Christ showed us the way to eternal life through his death on the cross.

The Bible should not only be read, reading without understanding has no value. We only recognize the value of words when we understand what is written – understand with the heart – the Holy Spirit helps us.

Proverbs 2: 1 My children, if you accept my words and keep my commandments in my heart …

To follow Jesus we have to throw our face in the dust, bend our knees and carry the cross.

We do not live for the bread that becomes hard and moldy, but for the bread of eternal life.

When God calls, don’t look back.
