Do we have purpose to our being? By all means! Our purpose in this life is to love, worship and glorify God, whereby through that love, we have knowledge of Him, of His ways and of His relationship with us, as our Father in Heaven.
“If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, he is known by God.”
(1 Corinthians 8:2-3)
Apart from the Father, we are as a boat adrift without a destination; our lives would be empty, filled with despair and longing for meaning. By loving God, however, He will fill us with His Spirit, impart us eternal hope and bestow upon us meaning to our existence.
Great is our Father who is in Heaven. He gave His Son Jesus as a sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins. By no other name do we have salvation and by no other name are our sins forgiven. Glory to Him in the highest.
Love God and take pleasure by doing His will, for by His will we have purpose and meaning, and by His love, we have knowledge of who He is. Who is God? God is Love. Give glory to, worship and love God.

A suggestion: Loom up Isaiah 43:7,21
And a question: What doe it mean to you; “to KNOW God”?
God Be with us my friend,
Patrick, have you not read:
“Whoever says ‘I know him’ but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected” (1 John 2:4-5).
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:7-8).
Therefore, love God by doing good, and you will know God.
It’s this truth I bank my eternal life on. And without this truth it would be depressing to live through the trials of this world. Amen to your post, Amen.
God bless you, Betty!
