For life to make sense, everyone needs a transcendent purpose. Not just a purpose that gets us going from day to the next, but a purpose that gives our life eternal significance. I can invest in my garden, my garage, or my gigabytes (sorry about the alliteration) but those things will not, and can not provide the ultimate significance I was created and redeemed for. I need more. We all need more God has given us so much more.
This Sunday, we will continue our study through 1 Peter and examine the price that was paid for our redemption and how we should respond as God’s children. It is in our response to God’s love for us, that we experience our transcendent purpose in life.
