Three Vital Questions

"Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest? Has My hand not made all these things?"
Every thinking person gets around to asking the questions "Where did I come from?", "Why am I here?", and "Where am I going?" Science attempts to answer the first question, philosophy seeks to answer the second one, and Jesus has the answer to all three.
Where did I come from? We were created by God in His image. And we were created with a void in our lives that cannot be filled with anything this world has to offer. It can only be filled through a relationship with Him.
Why am I here? We are here to know the God who created us and to walk in fellowship with Him, discovering His unique plan for our lives.
Where am I going? Well, that is up to you. Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it" (Matthew 7:13).
Atheism has gained a little traction of late due to the popularity of books written by atheists. I don't think most people are atheists, but some might describe themselves as agnostics. They won't say there is a God, nor will they say there isn't. They just don't know.
Speaking in Athens, Paul said, "The One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of Heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands" (Acts 17:23–24). Paul was saying there is a God, and He is the Creator of all things.
If you believe that you evolved and came from nowhere and that your life has no eternal purpose, then you have no accounting to give to anyone. But there is a God who made you.
