Guys, I pretty much just figured out the meaning of life. I’ve figured out the purpose of us being here. The question, “Why are we here? What’s the meaning of life?”
I just figured out the answer.
The meaning of life is to obey God.
Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, stop acting like you’ve got life all figured out!”
You know what, I’m not acting like I have life all figured out. I don’t. That’s different. If I had life all figured out, I wouldn’t be driving a mid-roof sleeper. I’d be in a truck with a stand-up sleeper, extended cab, more horsepower in the engine. So I don’t have life all figured out.
But I know the meaning of life. The meaning of life is to obey God. Everything in life is just a test to see if you’re going to obey God or disobey God. Everything.
The thing is, the Bible has wisdom for all aspects of life. We can deal with everything that life throws at us. If we obey God. Some people choose not to. That’s why I’m making feedingjimmy.com. I want people to find out about Jesus and how they can obey God through Him.
What I’m preaching is the gospel of obedience. I can tell right now that some people are bothered. They’re like, “Jimmy, the gospel is not about obedience.”
Oh, excuse me. Is the gospel about disobedience? Are you preaching the gospel of disobedience?
When Jesus began His ministry, He went around saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (Bible, Matthew 4:17)
That’s a command. Repent. Jesus died, was buried, rose again, and went up to heaven. And then His apostles went around preaching the message. Look at what Philip told the eunuch from Ethiopia. (Acts chapter 8) Stephen the martyr too. (Acts 6:8-Acts 8:1) They all said, “Repent, and believe in Jesus.” That was their message.
It’s a command. You need to obey.
Look around at America. What’s wrong with America? I heard Rush Limbaugh say the other day that the problem with America is the educational system.
No. The problem with America is that we’ve disobeyed God.
So, I’ve pretty much figured out the meaning of life. It’s not 42, like Ben told me in college. It is to obey God. So I’m going to go around telling people the meaning of life, starting with this post.
