A christian outlook in a messed up world.

What is the Point?

WHAT IS THE POINT?

Hhmmm, how many of you have asked that question?  Really doesn’t seem to be one, does there?  If you think about it, life is pointless.  We’re born, we grow up, we have children, we suffer in this world, then we die.  What’s the point?  Some of us are lucky enough to have found “success and prosperity” while we are here. But even these people, say for example all of Hollywood, are not much different then the rest of us. Look at their drug overdose rate. Why?? They have tons of money, lots of fame, what more could they ask for?  Obviously something’s missing.   I guess money doesn’t buy happiness, does it?  So what does then…  real true joy- not the temporary kind that goes away by morning?

There is a way to fill that void, that feeling of pointlessness.  Jesus Christ will provide the filling that so many of us flounder around in search for.  There’s a hope and a purpose for life when one gives his soul back to the Creator.    Even a christian may sometimes wonder; what’s the point?  We still suffer and deal with the same hardships and tragedys as every other human being.  Why even be here, why do we have to suffer?  What’s the point? 

As I look out at the wind blowing the remainder of the leaves from the trees, I’m reminded how quickly the seasons change.  Just as the seasons change, we can think of our lives as a season.  In the whole scheme of things, eternity is, well, eternity and life as we know it, is for a season.  Is life here pointless? No, no it’s not. It took me a long time to realize this, but we, as christians, have a job to do.  We know where we are going, our job is to bring as many people with us as we can.  That, is the point.

Jeremiah 29:11

Fallen World, Risen Hope

In a world that is dark and a life that seems hopeless; one might wonder, what’s the point?  War, famine, sickness, depression, death, poverty.  This list goes on and effects almost everyone in one way or another.     There is a light that replaces the dark.  It makes life worth living and gives those who see it a reason for being. Without the hope of eternity, really, what is the point?
