My friends, the greatest and wisest king that ever lived – King Solomon reminded us in Ecclesiastes 1:14 “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind”.
So, if life is meaningless how do you and I live a life of purpose and fulfillment? I found the answer in the word of God in Mark 12:30-31. I encourage you to spend time with this scripture, meditate on it and ask the Holy Spirit to help you apply it to your life.
Living a life of purpose and fulfillment means:
- We must Love the Lord our God – With all our heart, soul, mind and strength. This requires us to discover His will (in His word – the Bible) for every giving situation in our life and apply it. If we discover and don’t apply it then we cannot live a transformed life.
- Love our neighbor as ourselves – This is not always an easy one because by nature we often think of ourselves first. However, as we see things through the lenses of the word of God, this process will become easier and doable.
Serving God and others is the greatest fulfillment we could ever find and it also gives purpose and meaning to our lives. The process requires taking action and perseverance and as we do, God will reward our efforts.
Christ follower, I pray that God will give the purpose and fulfillment you are looking for In Jesus Name. Amen. If you are currently not a Christ follower, everything under the sun is meaningless and chasing after the wind – so come today and find your fulfillment and purpose in Christ.
All Glory to God!
