1 Corinthians 8:6 One God, One Lord

Yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. 1 Corinthians 8:6

In a world with billions of people, there are also billions of different views on life. People have different views on how life came into existence upon this earth and they have different views as to their purpose upon this earth.

These views range from believing in some god, to believing only in nature. Many will even believe in multiple ways of each.

Paul says that for believers there is only one God and one Lord. Both had made all things and believers live through both.

The world does not have a set standard that everyone completely believes in or follows. There are many different theories as to how life began on the earth. Some are similar to others, while some are standing alone. With all the different views, there is confusion and a lostness felt.

Many in the world often live in confusion as to how they are supposed to live their lives. All they see is many different gods and many different ways to live. There is no one set standard. They do not know or understand their purpose in their lives.

Every believer believes in that there is only one God. It is God the Father who created everything with His Son Jesus Christ at His side. Believing in only one God, gives meaning and purpose to life and removes confusion. It removes the confusion, because there is only one standard to live by.

Jesus came and showed people the way to live their lives and to please God. This guidance is now found in the Bible and is guided by the Holy Spirit.

You may be wondering at times what your purpose is in life. Jesus came to give you life and a purpose. That purpose is to love God and to love others. You are to be His witness everywhere you go, bringing more people to Him.

As you live in and through Jesus with God’s Holy Spirit guiding you, you will know how to live life in abundance and with purpose. You will not need to live in the confusion that the majority of the world is in.

And your purpose and life will last for eternity, not just a few years.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will live in and through Jesus; that you will seek God for direction in your life; that you will find purpose in living for God; and that you will pass on the good news of Jesus to others.
