What’s the point

Being a twenty year old in a world where literally anything is possible can be very intimidating. There are so many things to learn and experience. There are plenty of dreams to be fulfilled and goals to be accomplished. There are many unanswered questions.

As a full time post-secondary student, I personally juggle everyday with my studies, full-time work, ministry responsibilities, and wedding planning. With so much on my plate, I’ve come to question myself, “what’s the point”? What’s the point of getting straight A’s? What’s the point of making money? What’s the point of planning a big, fancy wedding? In the midst of the struggle to balance all aspects of my life, the purpose of it all can become foggy.

I was recently reminded of the answer to this “what’s the point/what’s the purpose” question. The answer is: there is no point.

There is no point or there is no meaning/purpose to anything if Christ is not involved. There is no point in getting high grades, making plenty of money, or having an extravagant wedding if Jesus Christ is not seen and exalted.

As Christians, we are called to live a life dedicated to Christ. The aim of everything we think, say, and do should be to glorify God (1 Corinthians 10:31). There is no point in possessing many accomplishments be it academically, financially, or even socially, if we do not have the intimate relationship we are called to have with Christ. There is no point in living a life that is pleasing to the world yet disheartening to God, our Father. May we be inspired to constantly put Christ at the centre of all we do this 2015 year and for the rest of our lives. d
