What is the purpose of our life?


Jesjoewa ( Jesus ) said to him,

I am the way, the truth, and the life:

no man comes to the Father,

but by me.

John 14:6

Almost everyone asks oneself, what is the purpose of life. Most people come to the conclusion that they have to earn as much as is possible, so they and their children have a good life. Years later though they walk frustrated around, because they couldn't find true happiness.

Jesjoewa ( Jesus ) opened the in the most famous speech ever, the Sermon of the Mount, with the words: "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:3.

The purpose of life is to learn to choose between good and bad.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,

that I have set before you life and death,

blessing and cursing:

therefore choose life,

that both thou and thy seed may live:

That thou mayest love JEHWAH thy God,

and that thou mayest obey his voice,

and that thou mayest cleave unto him:

for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: ...

Deuterononmy 30:19+20a

When we choose for good, then the good people will be attracted to us. And we glorify JEHWAH God. When we choose for evil ( throwing stones through the windows at the neighbors for example ), then evil will also come to us. In this way every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit ( Matthew 7:15-21 ). But what is good and what is bad in our opinion doesn't have to be so in the eyes of JEHWAH.

The prophet Jeremiah wrote in this context:

O JEHWAH, I know that the way of man is not in himself:

it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

Jeremiah 10:23

An extra reward for a good insight between what JEHWAH judges good and evil, is also the fact that we ( when we persevere until the end ) inherit the eternal life on Earth ( Psalms 37:10+29, John 11:24-26 ). That also is an important goal in this life.

But what is the way, the truth, and the life?

The Way is also the "heresy" that follows Jesjoewa ( Jesus ) in word and deed. If you follow Jesjoewa example by: studying the Bible, being loyal to JEHWAH, accepting Jesjoewa's sacrifice and mediatorposition, choose for the good, let yourself being baptised by immersion and preach, than you belong to The Way. Acts 9:2, Acts 19:9, Acts 24:14.

The truth is to be found in God's word the Bible, which explains:

Sanctify them through thy truth:

thy word is truth.

John 17:17

The life is: The life like JEHWAH God intends it, the kind of life which leads to eternal life by choosing for the good ( incline towards good ).

And this I pray,

that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;

That ye may approve things that are excellent;

that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness,

which are by Jesjoewa Christ,

unto the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:9-11
