What Happens When You Don't Know Why You Are Here

No one can appreciate gold if they do not know what benefit it serves and a gold that's seen all over the surface of the earth can never be appreciated. However, the relevance that is placed on gold is determined by the worth humans place on it and what it takes to find it.
.
God has created you and deposited something in you that would make you relevant in your generation. Have you taken time to discover it? Your purpose discovery is what makes your life to be like a gold and when you discover it and you're fulfilling it, you will become relevant and be among the top flyers in life.
.
But unfortunately, many people, both old and young, educated and illiterate haven't discovered the need to know why they're here. Lots of things will happen to you in life when you don't know why you are here. Few of them includes;
.
1. You won't be serious with your life
.
Isn't it appalling to see many glorious youths wasting their lives on boyfriend and girlfriend relationship, cybercrime, hard drugs peddling, drug abuse, premarital sex, pursuit of youthful lust and other social vices?
.
Dear reader, it is a tragedy not to know why you're here in life because you won't be serious with your life, time, years, opportunities, talent and destiny.
.
How will you take your life serious when you don't know why you're here? How will you take your life serious when you don't know it's value and worth?
.
My heart bleeds with tears when I see promising ladies messing up their glories on the bed of sexual immoralities. They begged to be loved and accepted when their lives ought to be commanding a global attention. Guys who ought to be great leaders are going about depositing their glories in the lives of strange women.
.
See, you won't live twice. If you waste this single life of yours, you'll be blamed for it. You're not just created to increase the population of the world, you're created to subdue, have dominion and replenish the world.
.
Get serious with your life if you really want to make a meaning out of it!
.
2. You won't live to make positive and eternal impact but earthly
.
Don't you think one should cry when one sees youths of nowadays to be living their life according to the normal pattern of life - go to school, graduate, get a job, get married, raise children, become parents, then grandparents or great grandparents if life favors them, then they retire and then return to the grave without making any positive impact? What a colossal waste!
.
It is good to make positive impact on earth but what will it be said of you in the life hereafter? You can be so generous on earth but will your generosity earn you an eternal impact?
.
When you die, will it be said of you, "Welcome, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord" or "Depart from me, you wicked and unfaithful servant?"
.
The only way to make positive eternal impact is to lead men back to their Creator.
.
3. You won't take your salvation seriously
.
You are not saved to be a church member or to be religious, you are saved to follow Jesus and to lead others to Him. It's not a crime to belong to a church but it's a shame not to win a soul for Christ.
.
Salvation is not just a means to inherit the earth, it's an avenue to be restored to the Father. When you know why you're here, you'll know that your salvation is your only escape route from the tribulation that would befall the world.
.
Being saved is not a license to sin or to remain in sin; it is a means of getting out of darkness and from the power of Satan to be restored to light and to the power of God.
.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Don't compare yourself with others. Look onto Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith and not to the heroes of faith.
.
If you'd know why you're here and make positive and eternal impact, you must be born again of water and Spirit (it cannot be negotiated). You must ask to God to reveal it to you, I mean your purpose in life. The secret things belongs to God and the revealed things belongs to us and our children (Deut. 29:29).
.
Ask through persistent and importunate prayers. The value you place on purpose discovery will determine the price you'd pay for it. After its discovery, give it all it would cost you to fulfill it.
.
I believe that the Lord will work upon your heart on the few things you have read about knowing why you're here. Take your life serious. Take your salvation seriously and strive to make eternal impact that would earn you a commendation and not condemnation from God.
.
Remember, no one has the opportunity to live twice in life, know why you're here and live fulfilled rather than exist and leave this world unfulfilled.
