The meaning of life

berkenrode-birchredWhat is the meaning of life?  Sometimes we can question what this is, where I am going and why I am doing it.Today Jesus very precisely answers our question:

Before the world was made, he chose us, chose us in Christ,

to be holy and spotless, and to live through love in his presence,

determining that we should become his adopted sons, through Jesus Christ

for his own kind purposes,

to make us praise the glory of his grace,

his free gift to us in the Beloved,

in whom, through his blood, we gain our freedom, the forgiveness of our sins.
