Greetings to everyone here once again. I am very excited to be part of this community, and today I would like to write about and share with you guys an exciting topic about which I was sent a video to watch and learn from. The topic for discussion today is "What is the purpose of human life? | The Old Path." Follow me as we discuss this topic today.
Brother Eli stated at the start of the video, "God created us to be doers of good works which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." We need to know that our purpose in this world is guided by what God has purposed it to be. Even the Bible states in the book of Ephesians 3:10-11 "To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. According to the internal purpose which he purposed in Jesus Christ."
This indicates that whatever God does has a definite purpose and every plan that he has is done for a purpose and not just for doing sake. There is nothing that God has done in vain, everything creation of him has a purpose to that. Looking at our lives, we have been given these lives for a purpose.
Looking at some of the creatures of God we can see that they all have a purpose. An example is that animal lives to serve a purpose by sustaining human lives. Similarly, the purpose of plant life is to sustain the life of humanity. Marine lives also sustain human lives as well.
From the book of Genesis 1:28-30 "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you, it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."
This indicates that every green herb has been given as meat just from the verses above. Our purpose as human life is to do what God asks us to do and that is by doing good works. From the book of 2 Timothy 3:17 "that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
We can learn good manners and good works from the Bible as there are a lot of places that teach us to do these works. The lower creations were not just created by God for no reason but instead to fulfill the purpose of human lives. These animals we kill are used to sustain our lives and not for anything else. This shows how we terminate the lives of other creatures to sustain our personal lives.
This is where I end my topic, and I would like to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you to everyone and also to the administrators and moderators of this community for the wonderful efforts they are putting into the community. I say God bless you all.
