Discover why Jesus created you

What are you?

Are you a tiny, meaningless cog within a huge perpetual motion machine that we call the universe? Maybe you are a miniscule blob of flesh that resulted from the largest explosion of all time—the one that people call The BIG Bang? Or, maybe you are a cluster of bits and bytes resulting from a line of code residing on some enormous computer programmed by an intelligent alien with a passion for complex simulations?

If you subscribe to any of these concepts, then you are a meaningless placeholder. You are worthless except to take up space. You have no reason to exist. You have no purpose for being here. You are merely a statistic waiting for an accident to happen. You are totally redundant.

Furthermore, if all of that is true, then you are a just a prisoner in a fancy cage. The only way out of your prison is to die. And then you will just go into oblivion like a dog.


What if none of those belittling statements are true at all? Maybe you’ve been fooled. Maybe you are needed. Maybe you are an important part of this large family we call mankind. Maybe you are an integral part of this marvelous system we call the universe. Maybe you were even planned for, in advance, and personally designed by a creator who loves you. And wants you.

A God who has a purpose for YOU.

According to the Bible God knows how many strands of hair you have on your head. He knows you by your name, and He has a genuine interest in you and concern for you. He has a purpose for you, and He wants you to find meaning in life by fulfilling that purpose.

Your purpose in life is different from my purpose, because God has specifically designed that purpose for you. That is what makes it so special. But there are some things that apply to all of us.

  • God wants us to become His children, voluntarily serving Him in whatever He calls us to.
  • God wants us to love each other.
  • God wants us to serve others, to feed the hungry, and give the thirsty something to drink. He wants us to give clothing and shelter to those who don’t have any. He wants us to visit the sick and the prisoners, and the widows and orphans. These actions are so important to God that the lack of doing them will keep us from heaven. (See Matthew 25:31-46)
  • God wants us to show others that He loves them, and bring them hope of finding meaning in life as well.

Don’t let anyone deceive you. You are someone special in God’s sight. You are NOT just a meaningless blob of flesh, you are a person born in the very image of God. (See Genesis 1:27). You are NOT just a cog in a wheel, or the result of a short line of code in a billion-line computer program. You were created with eternity in your heart so that you can appreciate beauty, enjoy music, and be a creative person.

But until you find Him, you will not find your reason for living. So look for Him, and don’t give up until you have found Him.

  1. Huh? I’m not really up on Christian theology, but I’m pretty sure it was God who was supposed to have done the creating, not Jesus.

    Jesus was born in the vicinity of 0 AD, but humans were around before that time. Even if you accept bishop Ussher’s estimate that god created the world in 4004 BC, that still leaves a lot of people to be created by some entity other than Jesus…so did he take over the creating after he was born, or what? And why? If he did, is he a God? If so, monotheism is kind of out the window.

    1. Gen 1:1, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen 1:26-27,And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: So God created man in his own image, male and female. John 17:15, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. John 10:30, I and my Father are one. John 14:9, he that hath seen me (Jesus) hath seen the Father. John 1:1, 14, (1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. John 5:22, For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son. A further study of creation and the global flood will confirm an earth that was created and not evolved. Can science prove evolution through duplication or replication that nothing has created everything? God is an eternal being that is not bound by time, space, and matter.

    1. (1 John 1:8–9). It is clear from this passage that even those who have been born again and redeemed by the blood of Jesus will still sin. Through thought, attitude, or action, we will “grieve” (Ephesians 4:30) and “quench” (1 Thessalonians 5:19) the Holy Spirit at times. But this passage also reassures us that God offers continual, ongoing grace whenever we agree with Him about our sin and ask for His cleansing. Jesus truly died for our sins, now we must accept that forgiveness. A humble attitude will keep pride in check and grace in abundance.

  2. God is jealous; He wants a personal relationship moment by moment with us to show us how to live and love Him and NOT just any ol PLan… ..Yes, God DOES have a plan and He alone knows ahead of time showing it as you pray to Him and ask for His help along the plan…but He doesn’t just throw one at us and not give us any time to respond…He’s there thru every moment and although it seems like a normal pace…He sees and knows every aspect we DIDN’T choose and yet causes it all to work to His glory (credit)and then for our good. Its a plan from a REAL PERSON…and ONE who REALLY cares…
    named God…and Jesus is His name!
