Have you ever noticed when you don’t know the point or the goal of something it can sort of seem pointless?
For example, let’s say you’re out for the baseball team this year and you show up to practice on time. During the entire practice, your coach never gives you any instructions. You just sit around for the few hours of practice feeling weird maybe you and your team mates might even get mad, all because your coach never told you the goal or point of the practice for that day.
It can be easy to feel that same way as Christians. When we don’t understand the point of we’re living for God it makes it easy to feel mad and frustrated.
So, what is the ultimate goal of the Christian life? Is it doing good stuff? Or is it all about going to church? Is it learning to become a better person?
While all those things are important, the main goal of the Christian life is getting to know Christ.
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, (Philippians 3:10 NLT)
As a Christian, our main goal should be getting to know Christ. That gives our life as Christians meaning and should be the basis for all we do. It would be a shame to live out our whole life here on earth without spending some time getting to know Christ. So make knowing Him a priority in your life today!
Pray: Jesus, I thank you for what you did for me on the cross. I determine to take time to get to know you. I want to know you and make getting to know you a priority today!
