What if there is no meaning to life?

A Universal Question -
"Why Am I Here?"

The Bible says we were made for God's good pleasure.
1Co 8:6 - yet there is for us only one God, the Father, who is the Creator of all things and for whom we live; and there is only one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things were created and through whom we live.

He wants to have a personal relationship with us. He wants to talk with us, and have us talk with Him. I believe that he just enjoys watching us live our lives, just as we enjoy watching our children live their lives (so long as they are doing good and productive things).

God made us, and he made us for His pleasure. We are here to please Him. Now it's not like he made some little robot trinket things and wound them up and He enjoys watching them move around and crash into things. His good pleasure is more like what we experience with our children. We can sit and watch them live their lives and it pleases us. So long as they are doing things that are good and right and productive, it pleases us to watch them live their lives. And we want to have a relationship with them - talk with them, and do things with them.

God is the same way with us. The Bible actually refers to us as His children, and He is pleased to see us live our lives in a good, right, and productive way. And what's more, He made us in such a way, that when we do things that please Him, we feel good, and when we do things that displease Him, we feel bad.

But we have a problem here. God is perfectly holy. He will not, He cannot tolerate anyone that is sinful. He cannot be pleased with anyone who commits even one sin. Can you live a life without committing any sin so that you can please God? I can't. (Romans 3:23). There is good news however, that Christ paid the consequences of our sin.

To all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you.
It seemed good before me to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has done with me. How great are His signs! And how mighty are His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His rule is from generation to generation. (Dan. 4:1b-3)
