You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
The big question we all need to ask ourselves is, “Why am I here on this earth?” If we don’t have the answer to this one figured out, then we’ll be in trouble.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
We are here to know and glorify God and bring forth spiritual fruit. We were created to bring glory to God. We were created to honor God. We were created to bring pleasure to God. The problem is that some people live for their own pleasure.
God has given each of us something. He has graciously given each of us a life, a time span for us to occupy. Now here’s the twist. We don’t know what the duration will be. We assume our lives will be long. We plan on it. But we actually don’t know how long we will live. That is entirely up to God. And that is why we don’t want to put off anything spiritual for another day. We want to take care of it now, because there is no time to waste.
The Bible even tells us that in the last days, people will be “lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God” (2 Timothy 3:4). Here is the problem with that. We never will find pleasure when we chase after pleasure. But if we fulfill the pleasure for which God created us, which is to know Him and to glorify Him, then we will experience pleasure—not the illicit pleasure this world offers but legitimate, godly, holy pleasure as we walk with God.
The result is that we will bring forth spiritual fruit as people see the evidence of Christ working in us, as they see the Lord in our lives and are attracted to Him. Is this true of you? Are you fulfilling God’s purpose for your life?
