Wondering About God?

Have you ever wondered what on earth you are here for? Have you ever considered why God placed you on this earth? Do you know your purpose in life?
The Bible says in Genesis 1 that after each of the first five days of creation, God examined His work and called it "good." But something significant changed with the sixth day. At the close of the sixth day, when God created humanity, He pronounced His work that day to be "very good." It seems as though God sensed a void within that only the creation of mankind could fill. That means we were created by God for a purpose; we were created for relationship with God!
In the same way, you have a built-in void in your heart that only a relationship with God can fill. Have you ever felt empty in life by the unsuccessful attempt to fill the void in your heart with money, possessions, status, personal accomplishment or success? The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3.11 that "God placed eternity in the hearts of men." You have a void in your heart that only God can fill. You were created for relationship with God!
Those two realities help to solidify the truth of Jesus's words in John 17.3 when he said the essence of eternal life is to "know God and Jesus Christ whom He (God) has sent." You were created for relationship with God!
Do you have any questions about your relationship with God? Are you uncertain of how to build a relationship with God? Are you looking for a relationship with a family of God's people? Perhaps you would like to share a Bible study or internet discussion with a minister about your relationship with God. Should you have any questions, please e-mail Greg Neill, Preaching Minister for the Marble Falls Church of Christ at greg@marblefallscofc.org
