WHY AM I HERE ON EARTH

PASTOR SAM OKORO

 

 

(Matthew 6:24 – 34) I would like to draw our attention from this scripture to the things that usually take our time. Jesus talked about life, we are
concerned about our life, food, clothing, what to drink and shelter. In verse 24 Jesus says we cannot serve God and mammon.

If we get so engrossed in these daily affairs of life we will not focus on important things that God wants us to focus on and God doesn’t want us His
children to live in this manner. I am aware that we live in a time of recession and it’s not easy to ignore these concerns.

I ask myself is life only all about responsibilities and the cares of life? So I asked myself, why exactly am I here on earth?

 

REASONS WHY GOD LEFT US ON EARTH

 

  • 1.Ephesians 1: 5 God wants us to be part of His family
  • The only way to become part of God’s family is to be born again (1st Peter 1:3). God expects us to live together in certain ways. He wants us to
    love and pray for one another, bear with one another, submit and forgive one another.
  •  
  • 2.Revelations 4: 11 God wants us to give Him pleasure
  • We can give God pleasure by loving, trusting, obeying, surrendering, praising and thanking Him.
  • Love Him supremely. Hebrews 11:6 having faith in God is to trust Him and trust means to take God by His word without having another plan. 1st Sam 15:22 what pleases God is for us to obey Him. We must obey God totally and completely. In Romans 12: 1 we see how it pleases God when we
    surrender to Him.
  • Hebrews 13:15 -16 expresses how it pleases God when we praise and thank Him continually. According to Romans 8:8 – 9 we must always walk in the
    Spirit to please God.
  •  
  • 3.Romans 8: 29 God wants us to be like Jesus Christ
  • He uses His word, circumstances and human beings to fulfil this purpose
  • (1st John 3: 1 -2) I don’t think this refers to our resurrected body. I believe this refers to having the character or nature of Jesus
    Christ. Having the character of Jesus Christ can be seen in Galatians 5:22-23 (fruit of the spirit) God wants us to manifest these character
    traits in our lives even when faced with trials. Repentance is not just a change of mind but of direction.
  •  
  • 4.Ephesians 2 : 10 God wants us to help others
  • God has equipped us in various ways through gifts which we can see in Romans 12: 6-8. Every human being possess at least one of these gifts. These
    gifts are to be used by you to help others and not for your consumption only.
  •  
  • 5.John 17:18 Acts 20: 24 God wants us to fulfil our mission

By telling others about the Good news of Christ (Salvation and the Salvation: Gospel about the salvation of your soul/Spirit. Kingdom: not only about
the salvation of your soul but the good news of His Kingdom
