Life’s Meaning is not Pleasure or Fame ▸
The real meaning of life lies in its perpetual nature—its permanence and everlastingness. Christ came to prove our body’s resurrection after death. Both our soul and body 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. It is the meaning of life: our immortality! Anything less than that is worthless (not worth spending all our time and strength for!) because of death.
