I am sure you have heard the saying ’existing and not living.’
It conveys this idea of a life not having a purpose, a sparkle, a reason to wake you up every morning. Safe to say that something we do in life is monotone and routine, but is there light in our lives?
What is the reason for doing everything that I do? What will be the sum of my life at the very end? Why do I do what I do? I know this might sound deep, but we need to ask this kind of questions? It’s good to stop being super busy and inquiring about our lives.
In the first chapter of the Gospel to John verse 4 we read that:
In him ( Logos – Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of mankind.”
John 1:4 NET
What John is saying to us is that ’Light, meaning, the reason for living is found in Jesus.’
To get the best of my computer I need to read the manual of the maker, only that way the computer is ’happy’ functioning.
For us, to live the best possible way we need to know and love of our creator. Only that way we can know ourselves better and function in a way that fulfils us and gives us purpose.
He is the light of all life by which we see everything else.
