What Is Your Destiny?

What Is Your Destiny?

What is your destiny? Why do you exist? Is there a reason, a purpose, for human life? These questions have baffled the greatest thinkers and philosophers down through the ages.

The Question of the Ages

What is your destiny? Why do you exist? Why were you born? Is there a reason, a purpose, for human life?

The Spirit in Man

The spirit in man imparts human intellect to our physical brains. It is what makes people vastly more intelligent than animals.

Destination and Course Correction: Planned From the Outset

Through Jesus Christ's sacrifice, human beings can be reconciled to God, and God's forgiveness of their sin will remove the death penalty.

God's Own Literal Children

That family relationship of becoming children of God the Father is the heart and core of God's incredible plan for humanity!

The God Family

The human family was meant as a lesser model or type of this greater spiritual reality, that God is a family.

Adoption or Sonship?

Scripture makes clear that God actually begets us spiritually in His own image, with the intention that we ultimately become the same kind of beings He and Jesus Christ now are.

Early Theologians on Becoming Divine

While the biblical concept of deification or divinization, exaltation to godhood, is commonly ignored or dismissed in modern Christian teaching, this doctrine was well established among early theologians of mainstream tradition.

Life in God's Family

Never underestimate the value of your life. You were born to become one of God's divine children. You were born to receive His very nature and character and, eventually, eternal life on His level of existence.

The Likeness of God

When fully in God's likeness, we will be able to fulfill our awesome responsibility of exercising dominion over, of assisting Him in managing, the vastness of His creation.
