SOMETHING HIGHER

SOMETHING HIGHER
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Our purpose in life is not simply to leave a legacy of good works and kind living. Whatever worthwhile tasks and goals we may pursue here on earth, it is ultimately God’s pleasure, not our productivity, that validates our existence.
Neither are we here just to secure our salvation far away from the heat of hell. We have been called to something higher than insuring an eternity spent in peace instead of pain. As those who have been created for God, the major thrust of our existence is not our safety, but God’s glory.
God is the beginning and the end of this sovereign story.
“And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:
‘Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!’
Then the four living creatures said, ‘Amen!’
And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.”
Revelation 5:13-14

He is our purpose, and He is enough.
