Life has a purpose, but most people fail to identify or understand it due to their preoccupation with leisurely activities or a careless approach to consuming the limited time in the world. Every creation has a purpose and objective in this world, and it must fulfill that purpose to accomplish the rationale of existence. Spirituality and faith shape and influence people’s perceptions, attitudes, and behavior regarding life’s meaning and purpose. Faith and spirituality typically stem from religion and religious beliefs and people’s devotion to a particular religion. Every religion teaches people the true purpose of life and the objective of a person’s existence. The common denominator regarding life’s purpose in all religions is choosing good over evil and leading a constructive life while seeking salvation and redemption for eternal bliss. Life’s purpose in Christianity also resembles other religions by iterating that the world is a proving ground for humanity. People must prove themselves by choosing enlightenment over ignorance and sin while leading constructive lives according to God’s will and spreading God’s message to others. 

Understanding God’s Will

Millions continue living in ignorance without understanding their true purpose or God’s will regarding their existence. They continue without God’s enlightenment or spirituality and vainly consume their limited time in the world. Every life must end, but life’s quality, purpose, and legacy are in a person’s hands. People can choose a path of constant partying and frolicking like there is no tomorrow or spend their limited time constructively while seeking spirituality, enlightenment, and faith. Faith plays a primary role in helping people find and fulfill the true purpose of their lives and reconnecting them with God. God also creates opportunities for people to mend their ways, but many fail to identify the message or opportunity. Lawrence T.
