LIFE QUESTIONS: WHO AM I? WHAT DO I WANT?

by on Feb.19, 2013, under Personal

Here are the two most important and fundamental questions that we should ask ourselves?

who-am-i

1. WHO AM I?

At some point in time, everyone arrives at this question. It is a deep philosophical question that relates to the meaning of life.

MY identity is not defined by what I do, or what others think of me.

I am a dearly loved child of the God of heaven and earth. I was created in His image (Genesis 1:27), and the Creator has a unique purpose for each of us.

One of my favourite Christian bands, Casting Crowns captures this question in the beautiful song, Who Am I.

 

2. WHAT DO I WANT?

Life without God is meaningless (Ecclesiastes 1:2), so perhaps the better question to ask is “What does God want?”

He is sovereign over all and like any Father, only wants what is best for us. Nothing in this world satisfies, so we need to submit to Him to experience any sort of lasting happiness and contentment.

But, how do we discern what God wants? By being in constant communication with Him. God wants to be in relationship with us and by His Spirit reveals Himself to us … if only we would listen.
