The First Letter of Peter, addressed to persecuted Christians living in five regions of Asia Minor, exhorts the readers to emulate the suffering Christ in their distress, remembering that after his Passion and death Jesus rose from the dead and is now in glory. Apostle Peter explains the Life purpose of every Christian in Chapter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
According to the Bible, the purpose of life is to love and serve God, and to have a personal relationship with Him. This is stated in several verses, including Matthew 22:37-40, where Jesus says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Additionally, the Bible teaches that people were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), and that we have been given gifts and talents to use for His glory (1 Peter 4:10). The ultimate purpose of life is to bring honor and glory to God, and to enjoy Him forever (Revelation 4:11).
It is important to note that the Bible also teaches that all people have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), but that salvation and redemption are offered through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16). By trusting in Jesus as Lord and Savior, individuals can have their relationship with God restored, and can live a life with purpose and meaning, according to His plan.
We are called out to declare the praises of Him who called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. Declare His praises and love through your words and deeds while you are in school, college or in your offices or any places you go and that is the ultimate purpose of every person in Christ.
