This is the all time favourite that everybody wonders about. Some folk forget it and never have any direction in life at all. Others worry, but never find anything that satisfies the heart.
Because we are made in God's image, I believe that we belong to God. We are His children. A girl in one school put her hand up to answer that question: "So God could have a family." Simple but very true and I like it. I cannot believe we were born to be like any animal - maybe to be eaten? Never.
Ask that question of anybody and most will say: "I dunno." (I don't know.)
If you believe that you belong to God, then all through life you want to please Him. Remember He does know our thoughts and doing what God wants, pleases Him and so you find He is there to help and guide us. It can and does happen. I know many folk who have had help from God.
Here is a Bible quote from Paul to Christians in Ephesus. Paul never saw Jesus, but God chose to change him from a Christian-hater to a Christian evangelist. God met and changed him on the road to Damascus (see Acts 9:1-30). Paul had a brilliant mind and God used him to spread the 'Good news' all over Asia. He wrote: "Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be His own, through what Christ would do for us; He decided then to make us holy in His eyes without a single fault. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family by sending Jesus to die for us. And He did this because he wanted to." (Eph.1:4-6) Please note well; being a Christian in God's family can be a great life, with real fun and good friends.
Sad to say too many Christians seem to think a good time and fun cannot be had. Some say, "You have to be serious, life is hard." Rubbish!
