Topic: THE JOURNEY OF LIFE….Part 2
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1-12KJV
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
In part 1 we said people have different perspectives about life and many journey through life based on what they believed. We said some believe life is simply a journey from birth to death and nothing more but we concluded that life’s journey is more than been born, live and die.
Today we want to consider another perspective of life which are threaded by a few people. Aside from life’s journey being from birth to death, some people believe it is also a journey with purpose, meaning if man is born, live and die and their no purpose for which such lived then such must have been a wasted life and time on earth. This of course is true as our scriptural text affirmed it that there is time for every purpose under heaven and went further in verse 12b that man should do good (purpose) in his life. So life’s journey is also a journey of purpose, and talking about purpose is talking about purpose discovery and purpose fulfilment.
Before we discuss about purpose discovery and fulfilment, I will like us to ascertain more from the scriptures that journey of life is a journey of purpose. Everything God made on earth including man, he made for pleasure according to Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” God made man for his pleasure, which can also be suited to say for his purpose, not only created for his purpose but also to live for his purpose and so anyone who is not living for God’s purpose has simply got his purpose of existence misplaced.
Furthermore, Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are God’s handiwork (creatures), created in Christ Jesus to do good works (purpose), which God prepared in advance for us to do NIV”, That scripture is simply saying God has purpose (good works) prepared for us before we were born, now he has created us in Christ Jesus to do those good works (purpose), so our life is a life of purpose and our journey on earth is equally a journey of purpose given by our maker.
Dearly beloved, anyone journeying through life without purpose is just like a man travelling without a reason, of course such will amount to waste of time, enery and resources and the end result could be dangerous. However, the important questions are, Are you living a life of purpose?, What is your God-given purpose in life, these we shall consider in part 3. God bless you.
* Father, empower me to live a meaningful life on earth in Jesus Name
