    As we focus on God, and glorify Him, our joy will be made complete. As John Piper famously says, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” Not only were we created to give God the glory He rightly deserves, but we were saved to live for His glory on a daily basis (cf. 1 Cor. 6:20). One of the greatest ways Christians can glorify God is by proclaiming His name.” a Christian will live the most fulfilled life when he or she is concentrated on the salvation of those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ.…

Having a steadfast faith then is a way to attain the supreme goodness. In having steadfast faith, we have a chance to be complete. Universally speaking, the acknowledgement of faith can still be applied. Of course, considering the other religious beliefs, this faith may be subjective.…

    Jesus says to “love our enemies, do good to those that hate you, and pray for those which despitefully use you and persecute you.” We are called to encourage people and to pray day and night for their salvation.

To simply put it the purpose of life is to glorify God and to love others just as God loves his children and spread the good news about him.…
