So to state the obvious, if you are reading this you are quite clearly alive. But what does it mean to be alive, I mean when one day you look back at your life, how will you know if you ever really lived?
What I’m trying to say is what does it mean to really know life?
How do we know we have lived?
Does earning a big salary, having fancy cars and living in a big house mean you have really lived? I am by no means saying that these things are bad or wrong, but does having them give our lives real value and purpose?
If that were the case, then what about those who are less fortunate? Does that somehow mean that their lives are less valuable, that they will never truly experience life?
I think that often we a drawn into the trap of looking at people who have money and thinking that they have it all together, that nothing in their life could possibly go wrong. We may even look at them and think their lives are perfect.
The truth is, that often isn’t the case; money doesn’t buy life. Money can’t buy true purpose or fulfillment. The only way we can truly ever experience life is by getting to know the one who gave us life.
In John 1:4 it says “The Word (God) gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.”
So you see it isn’t our possessions, money or social status that gives us life, it’s God!
God is the author of life, He is the reason we were created. So to know life means to know God. Don’t allow yourself to go throughout life without truly living.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have done, you can have life today. All you need to do is ask.
