Why Do You Exist – Part 1
Why Do You Exist?
Part 1 – My Creation
Why am I on planet earth? Down through the ages, man has been searching for the answer to this question: “Why do I exist?” The average life span is 25,550 days, which is just short of 70 years. Many live a long life and yet they never enter into the purpose of their creation. Am I here by accident? Was it some evolutionary process that is the source of my existence? If I was created by a Creator, then wouldn’t the Creator have a reason for making me? To find the answer to these questions we must look into God’s Word.
As Bertrand Russell said, “Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless.”
Matthew 19:4 says, “Haven’t you read, that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female…” Jesus teaches from the Scriptures that there is a Creator and the crown of God’s creation is man.
- God created man with the capacity to know and relate to him. In other words, you were born to know God. Isaiah 44:2; Psalm 139:13-16; Genesis 1:27
- Love is at the very root of our creation. You existed in God’s heart long before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. Jeremiah 1:4-5
- When we search for our significance and purpose outside of God’s design, then we will draw conclusions based on our understanding which is futile. Ephesians 4:17-19; Romans 1:20-21
- Suicide and abortion are the strategies of the devil to destroy the pleasure God receives from a person’s existence. Revelation 4:11; Ephesians 1:4-5; Genesis 3
