Why Do I Exist?

Psalm 139

Adrian Rogers

Sermon Overview

Scripture Reference: Psalm 139

God has a wonderful purpose for your life. No matter what else you may do, if you don’t fulfill the purpose for which you exist, you will fail, and never find fulfillment in your heart or your life.

Failure is not making a mistake, it is succeeding at the wrong thing. True success is doing what God created you to do.

A lot of us think God’s purpose for our lives is to save us from our sins, but that is only half of the equation. It is just as important to know also what He has saved us for.

We can only find the answer in God’s Word because what we think of God has so much to do with what we think of ourselves.

Adrian Rogers says, “If you see yourself as the creation of Almighty God with a purpose, then you’re going to want to be Christ-like.”

There are a few things to consider when discovering our purpose, and these things are found in Psalm 139:

  • God knows all about me.
  • God knows my character.
  • God knows my conduct.
  • God knows my inner thoughts.
  • God knows my conversations.
  • And God is always with me.

How foolish to try to run from God? He is closer than our very breath! Neither distance nor darkness can hide us from God. Even death cannot hide us from His sight.

We are constantly on God’s heart. Do you want to know how great God’s sum is of His thoughts of you? Psalm 139:18 says, “If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand.”

If you believe this, there is no need to fear. There is no need to dread His guidance and His discipline.

No, there is no need to hide.

God made us to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him. We were created to love Him and be loved by Him. That is the purpose, and the only way to know His plans for your life.

Apply it to your life

Do you love God? Do you serve Him? What direction does your life lean toward when you are in complete fellowship with God? Has He laid anything on your heart? Love Him and fulfill your purpose today through worship, obedience, and service to Him.
