God has given us His love without measure “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
King David found full satisfaction in God’s love, “And I—in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness” (Psalm 17:15). And He invites the believers to “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him” (Psalms 34:8).
David added how he was tempted to envy the wicked that seemed to have a good life but when he considered their ultimate lost end, he saw the true meaning of life. And he said, “Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you” (Psalm 73:25). To him, a relationship with his heavenly Father mattered more than anything else in life.
Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, discovered also the vanity of life apart from God. He gives these concluding remarks: “Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). Man’s purpose in life is to love God.
God promised that nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39). And He also promised that He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). As we accept God’s love, we would have answered life’s greatest question. And this will enables us to experience the abundant life that He promised us (John 10:10).
