Before I accepted Christ as my Savior, my reason for living was shallow; but knowing Jesus has given me deep, eternal meaning. Without Christ, I tried to find significance in—bettering myself, in my relationships, and by pursuing altruistic goals. And while there’s nothing wrong with these goals—at some point I wondered that in the end, if I was just going to die and be forgotten then—Why does any of it matter?

The bottom line is—without God—all the working, saving and spending…is meaningless. King Solomon wrote: “All things are full of weariness; a man cannot utter it; the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:8-9‬) All the pleasures and riches of the world—without God—did not give meaning to his life. Why? Because God created us with a divine purpose—to glorify Him!

After I was born again into God’s family, He gave me deep and satisfying meaning.

Because of sin, the entire human race is devoid of the presence and love of God. But when Christ died on the cross, He took the penalty of our sin and enabled us to know Him and find our divine purpose. Life without God is meaningless. Tim Keller wrote: “On the cross Jesus Christ got life without God so we could have life with God. He was putting himself into our lives – – our misery, our mortality – – so we could be brought into his life, his joy, and immortality.” (Making Sense of God)

God is the meaning behind everything we sense and know; when we know Him—our life is never meaningless.

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians‬ ‭1:16-17‬)
