Trying to Find your Purpose
All of us are on unique journeys, searching to find the meaning of life. We deal with identity issues and long for real satisfaction, hoping for something beyond the mundane day-to-day. And in doing so, we all mess up. In the struggle to find purpose, each of us has made mistakes. We’ve all done things that are wrong, leaving us broken, unsatisfied, and hopeless.
But there is something better for you - something life-changing that will turn your brokenness into restoration, your dissatisfaction into peace, and your hopelessness into hope.
No one has it all together. We have all done things that are wrong.
Each of us strays from perfection, and we will all give account of our lives to God. Because He is perfect and holy, everyone who does anything wrong - whether it’s a tiny white lie or a huge crime - is separated from Him.
Since none of us are perfect, we can’t do anything to make ourselves acceptable in the sight of God. There’s good news though. In spite of our imperfections, God - who created you and knows you better than anyone—loves you more than anyone else. That’s why He sent Jesus to us over 2,000 years ago.
The Bible tells us that God loved us so much that He gave us His Son, Jesus, who took every punishment we deserve for all the wrong things we do upon himself. He paid the price for all our imperfections. Whoever believes in Him can be reconciled with God.
Because of what Jesus did, when God sees you, He no longer sees the mess-ups, the shame, or the flaws that make our lives broken and hopeless. He can restore you and give you hope, truly something better.
“Dear God, your Word and my own life shows me I’m a sinner. But I want something better. I want to follow Jesus and believe He died for me and rose again. Please forgive me for what I’ve done wrong and give me eternal life. Amen.”
