Title: All, saved and lost, should ask themselves what is the purpose of their life. In view of the obvious design behind creation and the native intelligence of man, there must be a purpose or reason for man.


1
The Purpose of Man
  • All, saved and lost, should ask themselves what
    is the purpose of their life. In view of the
    obvious design behind creation and the native
    intelligence of man, there must be a purpose or
    reason for man.

By Joshua Harper with changes and graphic
adaptation by Don Martin

The Purpose of Man
  • King Solomon has been revered for his acquisition
    of many things, but mostly for his wisdom (see
    Prov. 1 7, 3 5-8, 13-20).

3
The Purpose of Man
  • Our duty is not just material accumulation
    Eccl. 2 4-11, Matt. 19 16-25, Luke 12 13-21.

4
The Purpose of Man
  • Mans duty is not just the assimilation of
    knowledge Eccl. 1 13, 17,18.

5
The Purpose of Man
  • The purpose of man is not the simple enjoyment of
    pleasure Eccl. 2 1, 10, Luke 12 19.

6
The Purpose of Man
  • To fear God is to respect and reverence him (Ps.
    103 11, 17 89 6-8, cp. Job. 1 1, Acts 10 2,
    24, 33).

"Fear God....."
7
The Purpose of Man
  • Jesus has all authority (Matt. 28 18). Jesus
    words shall judge us in the last day (John 12
    48). Mans place is to humbly obey (I John 5 3,
    Luke 17 10, Heb. 5 9). Submission to Gods
    commandments is a test of genuineness (I John 2
    3-5).

"Keep his commandments....."
8
The Purpose of Man
  • Man cannot serve two masters (Matt. 6 24, cp. I
    Tim. 6 6-19).

"...for this is the whole duty of man."
9
The Purpose of Man
  • Stated reason for man exercising his purpose
  • 14 For God shall bring every work into
    judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be
    good, or whether it be evil (Eccl. 12).

The Purpose of Man
  • How about you? Have you found your purpose in
    life? Do you know where you came from, why you
    are here, and where you are going? What are you
    doing now to ensure you know where you will be
    going? It is the one who follows the Lord who
    will receive eternal life have you obeyed?
  • If you are not a child of God, please obey His
    will today while there is yet time. Those who
    fulfill this solemn duty will receive the reward,
    while those who refuse will suffer the punishment
    of God. But the choice is yours.
