KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 1:74 KJV” That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.”
Many have questioned privily in their hearts, asking, is life meaningful at all? What is the meaning of living? Many have gone for pleasure, amusement, and what have you, yet like king Solomon wrote, all is vanity upon vanity. Many more have plunged themselves into absolute darkness by taking God, who is the cause and essence of life out of the picture. This is the misery of billions of humans and so are only wanderers in this life. Well, life is very meaningful if one comes to terms with the plans and programs of God. Rev 4:11 KJV Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. God created all things for His pleasure. The joy, benefit or importance of any created thing, is to live out for what it was made for. You can’t use your pen to slice plantain.
Our key scripture gives us the order for living this meaningful life. That scripture is in two parts. First a deliverance from our enemies. Secondly serving God in holiness and righteousness.
Man because of sin was under the bondage of his enemies, the devil, and his cohorts. This was the reason, the Lord Jesus came; to deliver us from Satan’s bondage, through His death and resurrection. Everyone must access this liberty by accepting Jesus as Lord. The second part is to live in holiness and righteousness all the days of our lives. Holiness turns to create some impressions in certain people. Holiness is simply separation from Satan and everything he stands for and to live for God. Satan stands for sin, sicknesses, poverty, shame etc. Holiness is not only about morals; it is an all-inclusive word. Be separate from Satan. In the Old Testament, a leper is separated from all others because he was unclean. This is a contagious sickness. Sickness makes men bound by the devil (Luke 13:13-18) and God is against it. Understand it this way, so you can avail yourself to be free of it, counting on the provisions of the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
A meaningful life is one dedicated to God serving Him in love and free from all satanic controls, both in actions and other forms of manipulations. Any form of satanic dominance in an individual’s life should not be tolerated and must be checked out.
I am living a very meaningful life, for I am free from all satanic controls and having love for my heavenly father. I walk in uprightness and exercise dominion over every work of Satan in any shape or form. My life brings glory to the Father and I am blessed ultimately.
Phi 2:15 KJV” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”
Rom 12:2 KJV And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
