What is the purpose of life? Is it to have a happy marriage or a successful career? Or is it to do something good for your country? Is it just to love someone or something like sex & money? Our culture has often limited life’s purpose to these categories, beyond which there’s no quest for truth. But what does the Bible say about man’s chief end? Listen to the sermon, as we explore the grand narrative of life’s main purpose.
The history records that Resurrection of Christ took place. The secular scholars cannot deny that Jesus was risen from the dead. The resurrection was witnessed by the most insignificant people of those times, mainly women. If history is so clear about this event, then what does it mean for us? It means the only hope for eternal life is Jesus Christ, it means He is who he claimed to be. It means you have no other choice but to believe in Him, He is not just the way of Salvation but He is your salvation. Resurrection is the foundation of Christianity!
We finally come to the passage where the Greatest exchange took place. Our sins were put on Christ, He bore the wrath of God the Father and bought forgiveness in exchange. God the Father turned his face away from Jesus Christ so that He would not turn His face away from us, the sinners. This exchange took place between God the Father and God the Son. To save us, Jesus Christ had to die for our sins. We will be saved only when we believe that Jesus is the Son of God who came as a ransom for us.
