John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
Dear Readers, Greetings and salutations to you, my brothers and sisters. May the God of peace and love be ever present in your life. As always, my love and prayers are with you. Yesterday I was pondering the meaning of life. The Lord our God has revealed to me the meaning of life in this world and even the ultimate meaning in the next. It is no secret. He reveals it all to those who read scripture; those whom seek knowledge, meaning and wisdom. As I meditated, prayed and pondered the meaning of life and what it means to mankind, I could not help but realize how many people feel life is meaningless. There are many more who have been misdirected or misguided. Some pray to false gods. Others worship money, power and instant gratification in the form of sex, drugs, material luxury or even violence. They are driven only by lust. This is why our world is so sick. It is maddening to me because so few of us realize what the truth is.
I am currently surrounded by men who lack meaning. I pray to my Lord often to help me to help them. “Give me the strength, Lord.”, I pray. “Open their ears and soften their hearts, please, Father.”, I beg. Yea, though I know that more souls will be lost than gained, still I continue to do my best to lead people to the path of salvation. For that is my purpose; That is my meaning here on earth. It is that purpose and meaning which prevents me from being driven solely by lust. Some of the best and brightest among us are driven by the desires of the flesh. So many of our leaders are drunk with power. For them, there is no ultimate meaning. They seek only to gain what they can in this world and build monuments to themselves without realizing that their selfish pursuits are meaningless in the end.
It is a lack of a sense of meaning, true meaning, which is destroying our world and unraveling the very fabric of society. There is a reason why some of our youth are becoming extremist, terrorist or joining gangs. Shrewd men are capitalizing on the fact that they lack a sense of meaning and purpose. Thus, they feed them false doctrine and ideology, instilling in them a false sense of meaning and purpose, to the point where these youths are willing to kill, go to prison or even die for evil, false causes. I have so much respect for my brothers and sisters in Ukraine, The Middle East, Africa and all war torn countries worldwide. They continue to maintain their faith and resist oppression, even in the midst of despair and violence. May God bless you all for your bravery. They continue to serve God and fight for what is right because they realize the true meaning of life.
You know, suicide is at an all-time high in this world. And, do you know why? Because people lack a sense of meaning and purpose. Divorce is on the rise in many, many western countries because people are unsatisfied and lack a sense of meaning and purpose. God has a message for all of you lonely, depressed, sad, desperate, greedy, lustful or angry people out there: Your life MATTERS. You have a PURPOSE.
There is a MEANING to this life.
Shout Hallelujah! Praise God for His grace! Amen!

Your purpose is to love God and each other; worship God by bringing Him glory and giving Him praise; serve God by spreading His Word and helping each other. It is a beautiful purpose and a wonderful reason for being. There is so much joy to be had in this. If only the whole world could understand this, imagine what the human race could be. If only all of us believed, imagine what we all could achieve. One day, my brothers and sisters, we shall all live in a place like this. I wish the whole world could be with me in Heaven some day, but though I know that is not to be, I still strive towards that goal and try to lead as many as I can to salvation and redemption; For such is part of my purpose and meaning. Amen!
Those of you who are in the darkness, I beg of you, come into the light. God has a plan for you. There is meaning and purpose, even in suffering. You can find joy, even in pain. You don’t have to wander through this world aimlessly. You no longer have to feel that existence is meaningless. There is a point to everything. You can fill that void that’s inside of you. All you have to do is accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and follow God’s plan for your life. You can live a wonderful, meaningful, purposeful life!!! Praise God Almighty!!! If you are lost and lack a sense of purpose and meaning in your life, I want you to do something for me. Find a mirror. Look at yourself and repeat the following until it becomes real to you: “I matter. God has a purpose for me.” I am here to tell you that you are somebody. Say it with me: “I AM SOME-BODY! I MATTER TO JESUS CHRIST! HALLELUJAH!!! Claim victory in the name of JESUS. Yes, LORD! I want you to listen to me in the name of Jesus. There is meaning in life. Do you hear me? There is meaning to life. You matter. You are part of something supernatural; something bigger than you can ever imagine. Believe it!
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
May God bless and keep you! May you realize the true meaning of life! May you find your purpose! Amen!
Love In Christ,
(A man who has found meaning in this life!)
