Whether you're a CEO or unemployed job seeker or homeless, the purpose for life that God explains in the Bible will lift you above your present circumstances and place you where every human being who is connected with Christ has the potential to be. Paul the Apostle, understood that God's purpose for human life is centered in Jesus Christ. The true purpose of life was defined in the eternal past and that purpose has not changed. The Christian church, through the Christ-like characters of its members, is supposed to be revealing the purpose of life to the world. Notice what Paul says in the Bible, regarding this:

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: (Ephesians 3:8-11)

According to the Bible, the purpose of God was revealed in Jesus before the world even began. Not only was the purpose of God revealed in Jesus Christ, but the idea of immortality was brought to light as well. The possibility of human beings becoming immortal is taught by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: (2 Timothy 1:9,10)
