No doubt there will be many opinions about these questions and of course many differing answers. I suppose stock answers spoken without much thought will concentrate on the practical and not the spiritual.
The reason for my existence…………….’Just to enjoy myself and the life I have’
Why have I been born?………….’Not sure, it’s a by-product of the birth of the universe‘
The purpose………………’Don’t know that there is one so I just get on with it’.
If I told you that there is a reason for your existence, your birth and the purpose of it all you would most probably not believe me.
It all depends on what you believe regarding creation and a supreme being, about God.
It is difficult to understand something we cannot see or prove to be true and even more difficult to believe but many do.
Just how did the Universe come into being? If we look at pictures of deep space we see literally thousands upon thousands of ‘Island universes’, galaxies we call them, and each one of then is filled with millions upon millions of stars like our Sun, much larger and some much smaller. The human brain cannot grasp the size and distances involved in the vastness of space and there is a limit to how far into space we can see. What lies beyond could be replica universes. Scientists are attempting to discover how everything came into existence but they are stumbling over the physics involved and put forth many theories trying to explain it all. The fact according to what The Bible says is that everything we see came into existence, was made from something that wasn’t previously there! In other words God made it all from nothing. He produced everything simply by speaking it into existence. That is a tremendous stumbling block to the unbeliever who continues to struggle with discovering the un-discoverable. Scientists have reached a dead-end and can only speculate.
Why am I here? What is the purpose of my life? I am here because I am God’s creation just like everything else. I have a purpose and that is to worship my Creator. I don’t worship the created thing but the One who made it all for His good purpose. That is the purpose of my life. How do I go about that? By believing in Him and living as best I can to please Him.
