Search for Meaning
"Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil." Psalm 86:11
Reverend Robert Morgan commented that there are so many people today around the world who are searching for some kind of meaning in life. They want truth and they want answers but they don’t know where to look. The age in which we are living is uncertain and difficult. People are confused by it all and they are trying to find answers for life.
A British philosopher wrote “people need some kind of underpinning that will make sense of the knowledge they are acquiring in the scientific age. In an overall sense, this has yet to be found; perhaps it never will.” His statement suggests there is no meaning to life, no foundation of truth and no way of figuring things out.
Well, there is a Book that God has given to us that provides the answers. Bible is a message of hope for those who are confused and trying to find answers in life. The Bible tells us of Jesus who will deliver us from the slavery and eternal penalty of our sins. The Bible is a message of comfort for those who are hurting and a message of strength for those who are weak. The Bible is a message of wisdom for those seeking truth and is the basis for Christian living.
Under the St. Stephen’s Basilica are the Latin words, “Ego Sum Via, Veritas, Vitae” which translated to English quote Jesus, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” We have the Good News in our hands, and sooner or later, those seeking meaning in life will recognize that there is no lasting fulfillment or satisfaction in the multitude of worldviews. This season of the year and throughout the year, each of us can offer Jesus love and truth to our family and friends who are seeking answers. Merry Christmas!!
