Pastor Chuck Smith, teaching through Genesis 1 reminded me that I’ve been created in His image, to enjoy fellowship with Him. As I type this, we are involved in the largest crisis I’ve ever experienced personally. It’s easy to get so caught up in the difficulties and the crisis that we forget the sweetness of our relationship with Him!

I am created in the image and likeness of God so that I might know God and have fellowship with God. The purpose of my existence is to bring pleasure to God. Revelation 4:11 says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power; for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.” My purpose in life is to bring pleasure to God. Now, the question is, Is your life bringing pleasure to God? In that degree by which your life is bringing pleasure to God, you are living a satisfying, fulfilling life. By the same token, in the degree which you are living for yourself; you are living an empty, frustrating life. Life can only be meaningful and fulfilling when you are living to please God, because that is why you’re here.
