Answers To Life! Answers To Life! Presentation Transcript

  • ANSWERS TO LIFE!
  • QUESTION 1. WHAT IS MY PURPOSE IN LIFE? “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25.
  • Jesus came to make clear our purpose in life, and He summed up our purpose in life in John 17:3, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” In other words, the purpose of life is to grow in the personal knowledge of God and Jesus Christ.

  • To achieve a good education so we can get a good job, so we can have enough to eat, so we can find love and a partner, and buy a big house so we can live comfortably until we die. View slide
  • We can do all this without ever achieving the purpose for which we were created. That is to live a right and healthy relationship with God through Jesus Christ! It is like pushing a heavy load up a steep hill, only to see it roll freely down on the other side of the hill! Life can be unfair at times, more so when our dreams, loves, jobs, health, and future
  • If we have found Christ Jesus, we have truly found our PURPOSE for LIFE and eternity!
  • QUESTION 2. DO I HAVE A VALUE? “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Matthew 6:26-27.
  • Our society has destroyed the value of human life by incorrectly defining the origin of life. Our schools are trying to build self- esteem into the national curriculum because they recognize that our children are suffering from the lack of self-worth. What our schools do not recognize is that they have cut the legs off of self-worth by teaching evolution. Children are told that human beings, like viruses evolved out of chance happening.
  • The Bible on the other hand tells us we are made in the image of God, more valuable than the rest of His creation. Furthermore, the Bible tells us that while we were ignoring God, He was willing to pay a high price, the death of His Son, Jesus Christ, to win us back. He made human being in His image, and He shed the blood of His only Son to pay for mankind’s penalty
  • If we have found Christ Jesus, we have truly found our VALUE for LIFE and eternity!
  • QUESTION 3. WHO IS MY PROVIDER? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30.
  • Your company or boss is not your provider. Your government is not your provider. Your parents are not your provider. Your partner is not your provider. They are simply managers of God’s provision. The God who gave us life, purpose and value, also gave us what we need to stay alive.
  • From the beginning of Creation, God has taken care of us, even after Adam and Eve fell into sin, God meet their need of sacrifice and clothing! As a good father provides for his children, how much more will our heavenly Father provide for us!
  • If we have found Christ Jesus, we have truly found our PROVIDER for LIFE and eternity!
  • QUESTION 4. WHO GUIDES MY DESTINY? “Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33.
  • Who controls your destiny? People who do not know God as Father do not have any other choice than to be the master of their own destiny. Their philosophy for life is “To eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die.” Being in charge of our own destiny without God as compass in our lives is like crossing a busy motorway blindfolded. We MIGHT get across to the other side without being hit.
  • BUT we will find that we have arrived at the wrong side in eternity. Heaven is for God and His heritance, His children. When we turn our backs on God, how can we expect Him to forgive us and to welcome us into His presence in heavenly places? Let us not embarrass the leader of our funeral service by making him lie that we are “in the arms of Jesus” when we are not expected there!
  • If we have found Christ Jesus, we have truly found our DESTINY for LIFE and eternity!
  • QUESTION 5. WHAT AM I RESPONSIBLE FOR? “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34.
  • The Bible teaches that God is in control of every event, but He gives freedom with responsibility to mankind. This means we have the freedom and responsibility to act and to prepare for a better tomorrow. We are responsible for what we think. “Sow a thought, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. So a character, reap a destiny.”
  • We are responsible for what we say. Psalm 34:12-13 “Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.” We are responsible for what we do. Galatians 6:7-8 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
  • Finally, we are responsible for choosing a right and healthy relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Everyone who hears or reads God’s offer of peace through Jesus Christ and chooses not to trust in Jesus Christ stands condemned by God (John 3:16-18).
  • If we have found Christ Jesus, we have truly found our RESPONSIBLE for LIFE and eternity!
  • CONCLUSION: Jesus has answered these questions asked. We have the freedom to choose what we will do with these answers, but God will hold us responsible for our choices.
