God does not exist to help human beings achieve their individual or collective agendas. Human beings exist to accomplish God’s agenda. But have you ever even asked yourself what God’s agenda might be? Has it ever occurred to you that He is working out an eternal plan, and that the whole meaning of life is wrapped up in coming to grips with where you stand in relation to that plan?
The answer to both of those questions is more than likely – no. As many in our day stress and strain to make the Gospel relevant, maybe, just maybe, the real effort ought to be put into making men relevant to God. He, is moving all of human history from point “A”, to point “B”. And the question each one of us needs to ask ourselves is: Where on the continuum do I appear?”
