We all have a built-in longing for being part of something bigger than ourselves. No matter how many iProducts Apple create, we are ultimately social beings, wanting to live in relationships with others. The meaning of life is WElife.
The road to happiness is WeLife
It is a paradox that the more you seek happiness for yourself, the more dissatisfied you get. The future does not belong to those who live for themselves. If we circle around our own needs we get smaller and more limited. Selfishness easily becomes a clot in our life stream. When we follow our built-in longing for WeLife, we find the meaning of life.
WeLife is faithful relationships
The urge to form relationships and to be a part of something bigger is there because we are created in the image of the lover of relationships, the One who is in fact relationship in himself: Father, Son and Spirit. When God was about to make us he said: let us create humanity in our image. We are created in the image of the one whose nature is faithful everlasting love. Relationships like it was meant to be are not fragile, built-on-emotion that breaks when I don’t feel happy anymore. They are faithful, full of love and eternal, because that is how our Creator is and how we are.
The Bible tell us how to live WeLife
When Jesus was asked about the most important commandment he gave this surprisingly simple answer: love God and love people. All the guidelines God gives us about how to live life can be summed up in these two. The Bible is a big book. 66 parts written by several different authors over many years, can get complicated, but by studying it we find that it is has one theme: relationships. Relationships between God and people and relationships between people. It talks about WeLife.
The Good News is about WeLife
In our relationship with God and people we have a common Goal. To bring the Good News about Jesus to all people. The good news is that when Jesus died on the cross and was risen again, he opened the door for everybody to have relationship with the Father and each other. He opened the door for WeLife. All we have to do is to believe in Him and surrender to Him.
To surrender to our Creator make us free. Life’s meaning and fulfilment is found in serving God by serving people. The “me, myself and I”-era is over. This is the “we”-era!
