The Meaning of Life is Manifest in our Choices
The meaning of life has been touted as one of our great mysteries of our time. There are most likely millions or perhaps even billions of people who are in the dark about the true meaning and purpose of our lives.
I am also quite sure that devil’s lies and deception are at the heart of this lack of knowledge. My posting today is to communicate to everyone that I can that the meaning of life is clearly communicated in the Bible. The bottom line here is that the meaning of our life is manifest in the life choices we make. These choices will be decisive in our ultimate destination in heaven or hell. Our decisions will reflect a choice between God and the devil. If our decision is to choose God then we will live forever with God in paradise. Otherwise, we will die forever in torture, pain, and agony in the Pit of Fire and Brimstone under the domination of the devil.
The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:10 – 15)
All of this should bring us to a reflection of the types of decisions we have been making on a daily basis. Are they choices for good or for evil? Will we choose to save lives or to kill115? Are we choosing to help those in need or focus on our own pleasures? Are we choosing God or the devil? The choices we make in life are what this life is all about!
If we love God then we choose to do the good things that he places in our hearts. If we do not love God and ignore His desires of us, then we reject the love of God and forfeit all of the good things that come His favor. If we reject God then by default we choose evil and evil will seep into our thoughts and deeds. This is the way it worked in the Garden and to a large extent it works the same way even today.
