The Meaning of Life + free Lock Screen

The Bible says we are like grass. Here today and gone tomorrow.

Well that's kind of depressing, isn't it?

Recently I walked the streets of New York City, and for the first time, I noticed the hopelessness in people's eyes. Like, "Is this all there is?" The mundane, monotony of life can sometimes eat you up. 

Do you ever think about what is the meaning of life? Why are we here? 

I know that's a cliche question, but it's a fundamental human question that we've all wondered at some point. (If you haven't reached that point in your life yet, just wait. You will.)


We are so small

Isaiah does a good job of showing us the vastness of God and the smallness of man in chapter 40.

  • Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales (v. 15)

  • He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. (v. 22)

  •  The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. (v. 7)

Nobody wants to feel small or meaningless. But so many live through the day to day of life with no hope. 


The good news

That's where the power of God's Word comes in - to enlighten your mind and your heart. To breathe life and truth over your value and your worth in God's eyes. 

"but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. 
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." -Isaiah 40:31

Imagine this: the God who can blow you away with a breath LOVES YOU. You have value because he says you have value. 

  • For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from God. (John 16:27)
  • For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
  • but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
  • And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Whether you can see it right now or not, God has created you with a value and a purpose. The only way you'll find it is to see Him. 


Remember this

So when you feel lonely or discouraged this month, I hope you'll see this verse on your lock screen and call to mind God's forever Words about life and how He sees you.

Reflect on His greatness and your smallness and how much you mean to Him.

What is the chief end of man? Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever. -Westminster Catechism
