My Purpose in Life

My Purpose in Life

When it comes to my purpose in life, I’ve been telling you about some of the low points. The high point was when my son and daughter-in-law came to a personal relationship with God. They had been praying for me, but didn’t feel their prayers were going anywhere. So they began attending church, which helped with the prayers, but as rational thinkers they had many doubts. They were having a hard time becoming Christians, because they needed foundational evidence for their faith. This rational thinking helped my son be a successful lawyer and businessman, but made it difficult to believe in Jesus Christ. They began attending a class for skeptics at their church and discovered that through archeology, ancient historical writings, prophecies which have been fulfilled in every detail, and other means, the Bible can be established as truth to a higher level of proof than is required in a court of law to convict someone. My son and daughter-in-law becoming believers in Christ and raising my grandchildren in a Christian home, has given meaning to my cancer and purpose to my life.

Discovering My Purpose in Life…

Today, I gave my testimony for the third year at Christian Outreach Week. I’m sure it blessed others, but not as much as it blessed me. This year, Randall asked to speak with me on how my cancer brought him back to the Lord. God does answer prayers in mysterious ways, and does work everything for good to those who believe, and does answer a mother’s most fervent prayer for the soul of her beloved son.

During Randall’s portion of our talk, I felt so much love! Randall previously asked me how to get the head knowledge of Christ into his heart. Well, I saw that happening as he talked emotionally about how my cancer affected his life, while looking at me with so much love in his eyes. He was surprised that so many mothers heard his message as one of “The Prodigal Son,” which gave them hope for their wayward children. A girlfriend approached me and said, “Randall will be a great man of God.”

What a grand purpose for my cancer… What a grand purpose for my life!

…The saying that is written will come true:
‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’

(I Corinthians 15:54)

Thanks be to God!
He gives us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(I Corinthians 15:57)

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus

I still have questions

How can I know God?

If you died, why should God let you into heaven?
