The Futility of Life

©2017 by Den Warren

Shakespir EDITION

We all have disappointments. At times we wonder if there is ever going to be anything better for us. Sometimes we ask ourselves, “Is this all there is?”

So what is the point to a life where we struggle to make ends meet? Sometimes we suffer in poor health, or poverty, or loneliness or problems with other people. If we were no longer around, would anyone care or notice?

Sometimes we don’t have any of those negative obstacles to overcome, but are weighed down with inexplicable feelings of sadness. Our lives never turned out to be what we expected. So what is our purpose in life?

What should our purpose in life be? We are taught that if we obey the laws and are productive, we are a successful person. Yet we know something is still missing.

Some may tell us that we are successful if we live a life full of enjoyments. We may have lots of toys and entertainment. But when our lives are over, what did all that do for us?

Some may be looking for fame. They think that if their name is remembered, then they will “live” forever. So if Mr. Smith is honored by having a road named after him, he will be remembered. But in reality, how many details do you know about the namesakes of those roads when you drive out on them? Many towns are named after people. What do you know about them? Does this really help them when they are gone?

The fact is, at some point each of us will be gone from the world, as will everyone who ever knew us. All of our worldly deeds, good and bad, will be forgotten by all men and women.

Fame will be forgotten and wealth will be left behind when we are gone. So if there is nothing permanent, what is the point? Can we really enjoy building our lives amidst the trials and tediousness of life?

What if the Bible is right when it says to “lay up your treasures in Heaven”? If your rewards are eternal, then what happens in you short life on this temporal world is comparatively of little consequence.

The eternal measure of your life is what you will do for God while on Earth. First, you must confess that you are a sinner and you want Jesus to save you. Why? Because Jesus was God who came to the world as a man and paid for all of the sins of mankind by dying on the Cross. Only Jesus, the sinless Son of God is an acceptable sacrifice for our sins. The first prayer you pray to God, must be in the name of Jesus asking for His salvation. If you make this prayer in earnest, you will be a Christian and God will listen to your other prayers. Do not put this off. Good intentions are not good enough. Don’t be left outside of Heaven for all eternity in the Lake of Fire, wishing that you would have had Jesus wash you of your sins. Just ask Jesus to save you. If you can’t believe what you are reading here, then I challenge you to pray to God and ask him to give you the faith to accept it.

There are many billions of lost souls who desperately need to hear this truth. They are told that Christianity is a myth and Christians are narrow-minded bigots. If you are a Christian, you should be working to bring more souls to His Heaven in spite of all of the lies. You can’t sit idly by and do nothing while precious souls are being lost. Make your life count for something that will last forever by winning souls to Christ. You can start by simply telling others about this message.

If you can win precious souls, you will find a deep, satisfying joy you never have had before. Even if you have not served God well, you can still finish strong.

Only One Life

by CT Studd

[Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgement seat;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[When this bright world would tempt me sore,
When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way,
Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Give me Father, a purpose deep,
In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife,
Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Oh let my love with fervor burn,
And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, “twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.]

[Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say,”Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last. ”]

extra stanza —

[Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
And when I am dying, how happy I’ll be,
If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee]

I look forward to your comments, and star ratings on the site where you saw this message. I hope this will help you to have a more fulfilling life. It won’t be perfect after this, but you may have a fundamental change for the good.
