Why are We here?

So many try to answer the question...

The real question is...

In other words…

To know God

Why? How?
Why do we find and make friends?
We don’t like being alone
We enjoy having company
There are characteristics about them that make them fun
They are a source of strength
God is the ultimate Friend, and He wants us to be His friend
Deuteronomy 31:6 NASB95
“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Romans 3:28 NASB95
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.
Hebrews 13:5 NASB95
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”
Romans 3:23 NASB95
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

To find our Joy in God

Our fulfillment, our satisfaction, our peace, our contentment
Deuteronomy 3:6 NASB95
“We utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women and children of every city.
Deuteronomy 6:5 NASB95
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

To show others the Joy from God

Be the light
Matthew 5:14–16 NASB95
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
