What is the Meaning of Life?

God First

God Running is a place for anyone who wants to (or even anyone who wants to want to) love Jesus more deeply, follow Jesus more closely, and love people the way Jesus wants us to.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine and his wife recently about the meaning of life and what God wants from us.

During the course of the conversation I said:

“God wants us to love Him really well and to love the people around us really well. That’s it. That’s the meaning of life. That’s the purpose of life.”

Then my friend John said something profound, he said:

“And that doesn’t happen until you surrender yourself to Him.”

John’s comment was such a great truth, that’s all I wanted to share today.

Just that.
