|display_description||Everyone ponders what is the meaning of life and how do they fit into this world. The author references one of the questions in the Westminster shorter cathechism which asks, "What is the chief or primary purpose in human life?" The answer was this, "Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever." Sin has all but destroyed the relationship between man and God, but it is the Christian belief that this was in the plan of God before the foundation of the earth to restore that relationship through faith in Christ atoning death and resurrected life. This is the true gospel message to be given to every man, woman, girl and boy.|
