I wish there's
more to life
Is there anybody out there?
Let’s consider some talking points and potential perspectives on the big question of The Meaning of Life to explore with family, friends and colleagues. While we may not have the answer to everything, there are some Christian responses to consider.
Is mankind alone in the universe?
Humans have scoured the sky seeking evidence of other intelligent civilisations in the universe, and we've come up empty-handed.
Why is it so hard to find others – human or otherwise – who will fulfill our deep desires for life companionship?
Who can identify with us, to walk with us throughout this life?
Have we been looking for a higher being in the wrong place?
What are the characteristics which we are looking for in another person or being which will help us to have a better life?
How do we know this will make us feel complete or happier when we have this love and companionship which we yearn for?
What is the “cost to pay” in order to get this companionship?
The Bible says there is “one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity – the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone” (1 Timothy 2:5-6). Jesus has revealed God to us and opened the door to eternal life.
We can find ultimate fulfillment in God as we are made in his image, and we are also called to be Jesus’s own people and we are loved by God (Romans 1:6-7)
Genesis 1:27. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Ephesians 2:10. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
