    What is the purpose for you being born?
    This is a question that most people very rarely if ever think about or even ask. It is a question that only a thinker would ask........if he or she is seeking the truth. Some would seek to ridicule that question in an attempt to distract from that question. But then, that just there way of dealing with something that they are unable or unwilling to really face.
    It is in the Bible
    But the Bible tells us not only why we are here and who is responsible for us being here, but also that we have a purpose beyond this life. It is an amazing eye-opener when one understands what’s written in that Book. It is the only Book that truly tells us what our purpose is. The reason why human beings as a whole do not know what there purpose is beyond the temporary things of this life, is because mankind have separated themselves from there source. That source is God, and like anything that is cut off from its source it becomes useless and without purpose, until it is reconnected to its source once again.
    Adam was made not created
    And what does that source (God) says is our purpose? God made mankind in a very personal way. You see unlike all the other things that God has created; God literally took dirt and personally shaped man(kind)/Adam. This He did not do with the trees, plants or even the animals. God simply uttered a command and they all came into existence…..But not so with Adam/us. This by itself tells us that human beings are special in God’s eyes……even above angels.
    The last has become the first
    An interesting thing to note is that man was the last thing that God made. But not just last in the physical creation but also the last intelligent creation. God created angels before He made mankind. This is something also to take note of because the Bible says that the last will be the first. The word that is translated “First” can be translated as “First in order of importance”, “Best” or “Chief.”
    We are a uniquely made
    Human being ultimately will be the best of God’s creation….better than any angel in heaven. The Bible tells us that those who believe the gospel (what you are now reading is part of that gospel) and is baptized will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and at Jesus return will be changed or if dead will be resurrected and given a glorious body like that of Jesus. The receiving of the Holy Spirit is an amazing thing….it is actually having God Himself come and live in a person. When the early Church was being persecuted by Paul, before his conversion he got a message from Jesus Himself, and Jesus said to Paul, “Paul why are you persecuting me?” Jesus was saying to Paul that when you persecute my people you are persecuting me because I am living in them.
    We have been joined to the God-head - now part of the trinity
    When God comes and live in a person the Son also lives in that person as well, via the Holy Spirit. That individual becomes a member of the family of God of which Jesus is the Oldest Son. Jesus called His disciples after He was raised from the grave His brothers. Christians, true Christians are not just servants of God. God in the book of Revelation calls those who endure to the end His sons. The word sons mean a child or offspring regardless of gender. So Jesus is our identity; what Jesus is, is what God’s children will become at Jesus’ second coming. Without Jesus you have no identity. Jesus’ identity comes from His Father and whoever is connected to Jesus will know who he or she is. You will never know who you are or what your ultimate potential is without looking at Jesus. Jesus rule over all things like a king, and we were all born to be kings over all things. If you are a begotten son or daughter of God, you have been crowned king, but is waiting for a glorified body and mind to go with our awesome responsibility. We have been joined with the Godhead, and will have our own kingdom in the kingdom of God. We will live on the Earth in a City that will be unlike any City that we have ever seen. We suffer no physical or emotional pain. We will never get hungry or thirsty (though we will still be able to eat and drink) or need food in order to sustain our life, nor will we need to breath air……spirit is what we will exhale and inhale….we will possess the very life that God has. We will have a spiritual body……a body and brain that will not be subjected to the laws of physics. So we will not be confined to the Earth…….we will be able to be any place in the universe we chose to go and even while at the same time on the Earth.
    Ruling over all things with God
    The planets that God have created will be populated with whatever life forms either we or God wants on them, and we will be their lords/ruler or king. We will rule with love as God does and be His representatives. In fact, when they see us they would be seeing God because we and God are one. As kings we will rule with Jesus over the universe and everything that exist and will exist. And as children of God we will have a personal and intermit relationship with our Father just as Jesus did from eternity……..our future is awesome beyond imagination.

    Ultimately, our purpose as christians is to be one with him. That is what we have been called to.

    The next life will be great... But for that to be our case, we have a world to overcome, a flesh to crucify, and a Lord to attain :)

    There is nowhere in the Bible where God said He made us to worship Him. But worshiping God is a thing that one would do willingly as a result what God has done for the individual. Only carnal people have to be commanded to worship God. God made us because He wants to share His glory with us.......He wants us to have what He has. He also wants us to be the visible manifestation of Himself.


    But Jesus never commanded us to preach about Himself to the world. Jesus came with a message and He preached that message and wants us to do the same. That message was given in the form of various parables about what the kingdom of God is like. And the gospel of the kingdom of God is what God wants us to spread around the world as well. People in the world need to hear about God's kingdom......they need to know that a better government is coming. A government that has the people's best interest at heart. They need to know that God is inviting any and all those who believe that gospel that He has a position/office in His kingdom for them. All the other stuff that you mentioned above is a given.

    I understand.......and I was stating what is revealed in the scriptures.


    Jesus was speaking to the Pharisee whom were more concern about outward expression of righteousness.......they were a carnal people, and carnal people need to be told things that would naturally expressed by those who are spiritually mature.

    I consider the phrase, "the whole duty" to be the equivalent of, "purpose".

    so i think this sentence tells what is people's purpose in life.

    Ecclesiastes 12:13
    The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

    That has to do with this life.....the here and the now. But God's purpose for us goes beyond this life. In one sense it was indicated when God made Adam and Eve. And was elaborated a little more in other parts of the Bible. We were made to be united with the Trinity.....we were made to share ruler ship with God over ever thing......we were born to rule.

    What is the purpose for you being born?

    To add to climate change by driving my gas guzzling SUV, leaving all the lights on in my house and refusing to recycle. [​IMG]

    BTW...Why do you always use such large type? [​IMG]

    If you are going to make a silly statement like that then you should not ask questions because you might get a silly answer. :)
