We are always looking for meaning and answers. Since the beginning of time people have asked the tough questions like “why am I here?”, and “is there meaning to any of this?”. The meaning of life is found in knowing and serving Jesus (and as a byproduct, serving others).
Spend time learning about Jesus. When you start to dig into the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), you will find yourself falling in love with your Savior. You’ll meet a Savior that cared about the oppressed, the downtrodden, the rejected and the defeated. You’ll get to know a powerful Lord who meekly took on the form of a servant, and you will be motivated by the resurrected Messiah. As you dig in you will be drawn to a loving Shepherd who cares for and welcomes His lost sheep. I welcome you to learn about Him.
In her book “Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the Worlds Largest Religion”, Rebecca McLaughlin concludes with this thought:
"Friend, if you are settling for differed beliefs, hoping that the universe has a plan, believing human equality is self-evident but not knowing why, wondering if anyone who knew your secret thoughts could ever truly love you, come to Jesus. Come to the man who brought hope to oppressed slaves. Come to the man who calls dead people from their graves”.
In a chaotic world Jesus gives meaning and purpose! Are you looking for something….someone? Look to Jesus!
“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).
