Why Am I Here?

Why am I here?

The Bible answer to the question "Why am I here?" is as follows:


1. To do good works
We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

You are here to do the good works that God prepared for you before He even created you. 


2. To use your gifts
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: … he who teaches, in teaching, he who exhorts, in exhortation … he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8)

God has given you a special gift(s) and He expects you to use it well.




3. To be a good steward
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (1 Peter 4:10)

The gift that you have received belongs to God and He has just given it to you to take care of it while you are here on earth. Therefore take good care of it by using it well and do not bury it because of fear. 

Keep in mind that your Life's Purpose often involves using the gifts that God has given you to serve a need in another person's life. So look for a way to bring glory to God by using your gifts to serve another person. 

For example, if God had given you a gift of drawing, you can use it to glorify God by creating artwork for your Church and you can also use it to earn a living by being a professional artist.
