What meaning do you attribute to your life?

Hits: 453
The way life works is that we all learn to live from somebody; parents, peers, people around us or even papers we read and programmes we watch. We become what we are exposed to. Who Jesus is in your life determines who is Lord over your life - if he is Lord in your life, your life will change and progress. What meaning do you give to your life? Life being meaningless or Life being meaningful?

 

1. I received from the Lord - the way life works is that we all learn from somebody;
parents, peer, people around us or even paperswe read and programmes we watch.
- we become what we are exposed to
- whoever shaped what you think has determined your lifestyle
- when it comes to the holy communion, there is an alternative lifestyle
- the issue of christianity is not about coming to church but receiving when you come to church
- who Jesus is in your life determines who is Lord over your life
* Lord = Adonai (Master)
= the one who has authority
= has the authority to make things happen
- it takes Jesus to make things move in your life
- who is Jesus in your life? If He is Lord in your life, your life will change and progress
- Jesus has the authority to do good to His people
- the more obedient you are, the more blessed you are
- you need transition from Jesus being 'Lord' to Jesus being 'My Lord'
- we approach the Word not to debate but to bey the Word
- obedience is the key to be blessed

2. In remembrance of Me
- Holy communion is a memorial
- 'remembrance of Me' - recall to your memory what your memory tends to forget

What meaning do you give to your life?
1. Life is meaningless (without purpose or substance)
*Ecclesiastes 1:1-12, 2:15-16
- there is no possibility of progress
2. Life is meaningful
*Isaih 42:8-9, Genesis 2:8-9, Acts 5:29-30, Revelation 22:1-5
- I am progressing between trees (tree of life and tree of knowledge of good and evil) * Genesis 2:8-9
- things may go wrong but God has the last say
