But since the birth of Christianity, the true followers of our Lord have experienced this Christian doctrine of Spirit-caused calmness of the soul. They wrote songs and hymns hundreds of years ago with the same lyrical subject of joy in the Lord, and churches have used them in their services until now.

Your Fame and Pleasures Do Not Define the Meaning of Life ▸

The real meaning of life lies in its perpetual nature—its permanence and everlastingness. Christ came to prove our bodies’ resurrection after death. Both our souls and bodies were created to last forever. Life, therefore, is not pleasure, achievement, fame, travel, good health, longevity, or other similar matters we experience since all these will pass away. Rather, it is how we can defeat hell—our natural home after death, given our lack of interest in heaven and the things of God! It is how we can be forgiven and saved; it is how to enter heaven and live there forever together with Abraham, Jacob, the angels of God, and Jesus Christ, our Lord. Life’s meaning is our immortality! Anything less than that is worthless (not worth spending all our time and strength on!) because of death.

Have Confidence and Move Forward

THE ONLY PROVEN method to move forward in life with confidence is not the recipe for a college education, a good job, or a bountiful inheritance. Life is God-given; we cannot isolate it from God’s mysterious nature and qualities.

Our love for our family, for example, is priceless. It can neither be bought, copied, nor duplicated. In Steve Jobs’ last words [some said Jobs did not say it!], he mentioned how worthless his wealth and fame were compared to his loved ones.

God is love; He taught us to love with an intense feeling of affection that bears the mark of God’s imprimatur. Why do young kids make us happy? We see the joy in their baby talk and artless entertainment. It is because “God loves the little children.” Why are we indignant with robbers, rapists, and even the bad-mouthing of our leaders and friends? Well, it is on account of God’s hatred of what is sinful and evil.

Cruelty fills us with revulsion. We are made in God’s image, full of our maker’s fingerprints. We can feel His anger. Hence, we can move forward in life with confidence only in the mighty hand of God—only if we believe we are safe in His loving arms. The apostle Paul wrote: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?” (Rom. 8:31)
