God reveals through the author of Genesis that he created some things with nephesh, a Hebrew word that is generally translated as living being, life, soul or breath. Life is also described as being “in the blood” or “in the flesh”, or having “breath”. What is the meaning of life? For the righteous, the purpose of life is to give glory to God our creator and enjoy Him forever through Jesus Christ. For the wicked, unbelievers will bring glory to God through judgment by being objects of His wrath for eternity.
In 1988, Hugh Moorhead, former director of the Department of Philosophy at Northwestern University, asked hundreds of prominent Western thinkers, commentators, and even comedians about the meaning of life. Moorhead published these phrases and phrases from some 250 thinkers. In this post, I aim to review, explore the meaning of “meaning”, review some false but popular reflections on the meaning of life, and finally, to cover how the Bible answers the perennial question about what the meaning of life is. The crown of life undoubtedly refers to the realization of all the glorious possibilities that arise through communion with God and the Son.
In these passages, Jesus seems to imply that it is almost equivalent to depositing treasures in heaven, or entering the kingdom of God. This is why God created Adam, the first man, and placed him in a garden to work and care for him (Genesis 2:15). Generally speaking, life means real life; a vital connection with the world and God; and the sum total of man's highest interests. Wisdom gives us a straight path to eternal life while understanding gives us knowledge of God and keeps us away from evil that leads to eternal punishment.
The psalms often reveal a deep longing to be allowed to enter the presence of God which goes beyond earthly and temporal worship in the sanctuary or temple. According to Genesis, God gives people gifts and responsibilities such as marriage, family, relationships, culture and work. There was a revolt against death in many godly minds; a belief that life in communion with God could not end or break even with death itself. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in trusting Him so that you can overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Those relationships with God and with Christ in the spiritual realm and activities that derive from them constitute real and eternal life. When Jesus proclaimed the good news of God He sought to save and restore spiritual life lost in Adam's sin. The meaning of life would be incomplete without knowing Jesus as one who came to restore God's original plan in us.
