Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Everyday is a miracle of life. The more we draw near to God the more He draws near to us. Showing us things we never knew before and how amazing this life and world we live in is. To us it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. Not everyone can accept this word but only those to whom it has been given. Christ is wisdom to unto us. He is how we make sense of this broken yet beautiful world. There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Jesus is our guide through this life, the author and finisher of our faith. God wants us to know the meaning of life. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. A full life is one that is meaningful and devoid of aimless wandering.
The meaning of life is wrapped up in the glory of God. In calling His elect, God says, “Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them". The reason we were made is for God’s glory. Any time we substitute our own glory for God’s, we become idolaters and miss the meaning of life. Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. And we have this promise: “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart”
