What is the purpose of your existence? Is your life worth living being a spectator? Every vision of our thoughts could have a living reality in other person. What are you hoping to achieve during your lifetime?


Life is the most valuable commodity given to us; it’s not our houses, nor our lovely cars, nor high paid jobs, nor the beautiful family we have established. And life consists not in the abundance of things that we possess, there is more to our existence than what meets our natural eyes.

What you do with your life will determine your eternal destiny, you live here now, but its deeds will be required at the judgement. Life is a very important aspect to be preserved, not only in this decade, but certainly for the next generation. Our children will want to know what we did with our time, our grandchildren will want to read about the heroic stories of which we were a part, our life is to be cherished and to be nurtured, and be preserved blameless unto the coming of the Lord.
And the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23

John 8:12. The life was the light of men. The life that Christ gives to us enlightens our mind. He is the Light of the World. His light chases away the darkness of the earthly captivity, although the darkness will not receive it. Nor comprehend it. Men, in darkness have eyes but they can’t see the wrong they are doing, they are unable to see the deception in society.

”Light” is that by which we see objects distinctly. Shadows are removed; fine details appear plainer, the light of the sun enables us to discern clear forms, measure distance, observed the magnitude of things, redeeming the time, assess the hour in which we live. Light does not mix with darkness, but rather conquers it; Christ has conquered the darkness of this world. Light warms the body; but Christ warms the living soul.
God is light and in him dwells no darkness, Light blazed with celestial grandeur upon Mount Sinai. Light rested over the mercy seat in the tabernacle. Light filled the temple of Solomon at its dedication. Light shone on the hills of Bethlehem when the angels brought the message of hope and redemption to the shepherds.

The spiritual light that Christ provides draws men to God, leading them to the well of salvation. Mankind are incapable of finding God alone. Christ was in the beginning with God. He was already there “in the beginning.” He possesses the characteristics of God, such as His eternal nature; His deity, His identity; His purpose and His mind, his will, his command.
What is the purpose of your existence? Is your life worth living being a spectator? Every vision of our thoughts could have a living reality in other person. What are you hoping to achieve during your lifetime? is it just to earn money, or respectability? Are you a passive stranger in a moving world, observing the atmosphere, but never enter into adventure, nor desire to help another, every sixty seconds that you waste, is a minute you will never get back.

Christ did not become a different person to walked on earth, he was still the eternal one, the other disciples said we have seen the Lord, later Thomas said “my Lord and my God” John 20:28
Mankind is the most unique creation of God among the creatures on earth, in that he has been blessed by God with the natural and spiritual light of Christ. Man’s dominion on earth is due to the revelation of this light. Every gem of thought, every flash of intelligence, is from the light of the world.

Life is the most important aspect of creation. It is life that distinguishes the works of God from the works of man, and this fact applies not only to physical life, but also to spiritual life.
Life is worth living when we are brave enough to live for the progress of humanity. The question “is life worth living” revolves around our existence and the extensions of values within an individual; it’s worth it if we esteem our self worth higher than physical existence, when we seek to fulfill our place in society.
