Examining Biblical Scripture

Food for Thought: What are we Here For?

When we feel dismayed and know we need to keep moving forward, but aren’t sure our purpose, the something that nags at us is the question, “Why are we Here?” It can plague us.

We’re here for one reason… to give glory to God.

As I live and move and have my being, I give him pleasure. Like a father watching his child grow, God looks upon each of us as His workmanship, His protege, His delight.

We are here for many opportunities, experiences, highs and lows. We are here to build relationships and grow with our family and our community. We are here to do many things with our time, talents and skills. But most of all, we are here to delight the LORD and to delight in Him as He relishes our time with Him.

Celebrate: You are fearfully and wonderfully made!
Let’s give Him the glory for our successes and achievements. Let’s give Him the glory as we enjoy our lives on this earth. Let’s give Him the glory as we live and work and have our very being.

Lovely. Hallelujah! Amen.
