“In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
John 1:4 (KJV)
Light speaks of revelation, and darkness speaks of ignorance. Our text declares that “In him was life; and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4, KJV). In essence, John is telling us that anyone not in Him has no life, and as a result, walks in ignorance. Can you imagine the number of people walking around the world without life?
True life is not just the act of breathing. We are talking about fulfilment here. Beloved, without a revelation of your purpose on earth you simply exist. Every creature was made for a purpose, and no one is better equipped to reveal the purpose than the Creator. Everyone born into this world has a purpose to fulfil on earth, and this purpose can only be fully actualised when you discover who the Lord and Saviour is and you consciously go on to know Him.
Paul the Apostle’s life was completely turned around when he came to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. After Paul had an encounter with the Lord, he spent the rest of his life pursuing Him. No matter the human applause, no matter the awards you acquire, you cannot fulfil your purpose outside of your Maker. Yes, you may acquire wealth, but wealth is not a purpose. You may own houses and land but they do not define your purpose. Until you meet the Lord, all your acquisitions are nothing. That is why we read today about multimillionaires committing suicide. Naturally speaking such an action cannot be explained because these people are successful by man’s definition, but inwardly they are empty; nothing they do can fill the vacuum.
I challenge you today to make the pursuit of God your desire in order to be fulfilled.
