The Futility of Godless Pursuit in LifeJuly 23, 2017 Rev. Olufemi Babalola
WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR? The pursuit of wisdom, knowledge, success, accomplishments, wealth and every other plan apart from God is futile quest and adventure that leads to meaningless existence. Every other person or thing except the living God is as uncertain and unreliable as the shadow or spider’s web. Leaning on them only leads to shame, humiliations, frustrations, disappointments and defeat in life. The greatest goal to pursue in life is to know Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour, and the greatest achievement in life is to do the will of God. Knowing Jesus intimately and experiencing Him personally is a treasure that is far greater than any human achievement and it is the key to happiness, fulfilment and lasting peace both in the present life and the one to come. Therefore, seek to live each day for the purposes and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ while you are still alive in the present world.
