Why am I here?

People often wonder why are they here. You may have asked that question yourself. Sometimes it is hard to make sense out of our lives, to find real purpose. So many of us fall into routines and life just goes on day by day. Shakespeare has Macbeth express that sense of hopelessness when he utters the famous lines, “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,/Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,/To the last syllable of recorded time…”

One day lies on top of another and then a week is past. The weeks turn into months and the months into years and one day we sit up and look at it all and wonder why am I here, what did I accomplish. If this is true for us then we have failed to grasp the purpose of our presence on this earth. God put mankind here for a reason. He put each person here for a reason. If we have submitted to his will then he definitely has a job for us.

One of the reasons we don’t understand that, is that we have our own agenda. We have our own goal and set our own purpose. Then before we know it, we are caught in the “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow” routine and the real meaning of life is missed.

When we were created as new creatures in Christ, having experience death to the old man and put on the new man in Christ we were created for a meaningful purpose. Let’s read Eph. 2:10, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

There is no daily petty pace for Christians. Each day is a work day in the kingdom. Each day provides a unique opportunity for the Christian to enjoy a task for God. Why are we here. God has work for us. What exciting things might the world of Christendom accomplish if it was zeroed in on God’s work instead of their own agenda?
