Why Are You Here?

(This post is the final in my 20 questions series taken from the April 2014 feature article in O magazine.)


QUESTION 20 – Why Are We Here?


For the finale, Oprah has us ponder and ask yourself why you are here. What is your purpose on this earth?
Here’s a Christian perspective:
What is the purpose of life? It is that we should revere the all-powerful God. To revere God means to respect and stand in awe of him because of who he is. Purpose in life starts with whom we know, not what we know or how good we are. It is impossible to fulfill your God-given purpose unless you revere God and give him first place in your life.


Many years ago I read The Purpose-Driven Life and it’s an excellent book to help Christians begin to understand their purpose, why God created us and the reason we exist.



I know why I’m here. Do you? If not, how will you find out?
