And so for the fourth time, for the fourth day in a row, why are we here?
We are here to know God. Didn’t I just write yesterday that our purpose was to know and understand love? Yes, I did. But to know and understand love is to know and understand God…because God is love.
I’ve thus tried to speak to the profundity of our existence, and given four different ways to think about it – but all four ways point in the same direction.
We exist to demonstrate that good can overcome evil. This is a lesson for angels to learn. Goodness is best described as love. And God is the epitome of love. Those are fours ways to think about the reason for our existence. To put them all into one sentence, we demonstrate before angels that the goodness of God’s love overcomes evil.
My attempts to describe these great truths are feeble, but they are honest and they are true to the Bible.
There is so much more for us learn! But blessed be our God who will teach us all we are willing to learn. Let Him be your teacher each and every day.
Thanks be to God for giving us life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let us enjoy and honor Him more and more every day. He is worthy.
