I want people to awake to the reality that God is the center of the universe.  He is the center of everything. We exist for Him.  This reality would be horrible news if God were self-centered, unloving, endlessly wrath-filled, unimaginative, and dull.  But this is not the case.  The God of the universe is loving, creative, amazing, awe-inspiring, truthful, and gracious.  He created all things for a purpose.  Even our lives.  Everything is leading somewhere.  In this universe, God has determined that our actions have meaning.  The things we do really matter.  This is why the universe is in disrepair, because our original parents – Adam and Eve – disobeyed God and left everyone for all time to deal with the consequences.  But thankfully God is on mission to undo those consequences.  He will save anyone from the consequences of Adam and Eve (i.e. – sin) if they will call on Jesus’ name after hearing the gospel (that is, the story of Jesus’ salvation-providing life, death, and resurrection).  God saves those who accept His gospel, and one result of this acceptance is discovery of the true meaning of life.  The meaning of life is to know God and join Him on mission.  This missional lifestyle is enabled through the death of Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.  God-followers understand that we exist to know God, love Him, spread His fame, share His gospel, enjoy His joy, and demonstrate true humanity to the masses.
