Why am I here on earth?

Romans 8:29 KJV: For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

My dear friend in Christ, the correct answer to the question of why am I here in this world and what is my purpose, holds the key to living a successful and meaningful life. Unfortunately many are not aware of this truth that there is a reason for their being here on earth, created by God and there is a purpose for which He created us and place us in a time such as this.

Many were taught that the central essence for which God created man is to be happy with Him in heaven after we have lived a righteous life here on earth. Invariably, they want you to do all you can to make heaven. But beyond this basic, there is a more excellent answer to the reason why you are here and that answer has been captured in our text today. And that God knew from the very beginning even before any man set foot on the surface of the earth. He designed man for one central purpose and that is to be like His son Jesus Christ who came in the flesh, in every way.

Knowing this therefore, we take inventory of what we are currently doing to attain that conformity and also carrying out steady evaluation to know if we are making progress or not. This evaluation can only work if we carryout a proper study of the man Jesus by the help of the Holy Spirit. After like 5 to 10 years, a review is done to ascertain the degree of conformity. If none, the onus lie in us to do something or change our approach to achieving this purpose of becoming like Christ . Otherwise when we die and go back to our creator, we will account for what we have done to gain conformity while on earth.

I call on you child of God to ask yourself: will what are currently doing as believer help you in any way to gain conformity and be like His son in the future (Thinking His thoughts and doing His deeds)? If the answer is no, then you should leave it and seek for help. The Holy Ghost is always there to guide you. Mentorship by fathers of faith who have attained a higher level of conformity will also be of help. Paul writing says imitate me as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1. This is the language of a man that has attained a high level of conformity. It is a possibility otherwise God won’t ask us to attempt it. Shalom.

Declare to yourself loud: Christ my model.


  1. Spirit of the Living God, help me to model my life after Christ, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
  2. Please add your personal intentions.

Colossians 3:10-16
