Why do we live our lives in the way we do? On the most elementary level, the answers are easy: we eat because we’re hungry, study so we can get good grades, watch TV because we’re bored…the list goes on and on.

My church youth group recently completed a study called “Underground Reality—Vietnam” put out by Voice of the Martyrs. The theme song of the study was “Look to Love,” by SonicFlood. The chorus starts out with the lines “if we all live for something…”
Some people—even some Christians—have no purpose for life. They just shuffle through the world aimlessly.What are you living for?
