"...I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord..." - Philippians 3:8

The Goal of Life

What is the goal of life? What is your goal for life? What does God’s Word say should be our goal for living?

Is it finding happiness? No.

Is it accomplishing much to leave a legacy? That can be good, but that’s not it.

Is it being good and helping your fellow man? That’s good, too, but there is something more.

Read the words of the apostle Paul: “I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ.”

Knowing Christ is the ultimate goal of life. If you know Christ, you don’t have to worry about finding happiness, being good, helping your fellow man, or leaving a legacy. All that flows out of knowing Christ. The ultimate goal of life is to know Christ. Do you really know Him?
