We read in II Corinthians 5 that we as Christians have an identity crisis. We find ourselves inhabiting a worldly, physical body with all of its imperfections and limitations. We know, somewhere deep within us, that our time on this earth is limited. And we also know that there is more to this life than what is seen with the eye.
It was C.S. Lewis who said, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
The fact is that God made us for something more than just this earth…something much better than this earth. In reading II Corinthians 5 we find that our God “prepared us for this very purpose,” that is to inhabit a “house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” Since we are a people who have a marvelous inheritance waiting for us in heaven shouldn’t we want to be a people of purpose? A “purposed people” are those who are seeking to be well pleasing unto God.
Why not join us in worship this Lord’s day as we examine God’s eternal purpose for us?
