"What Will Really Matter?"
It’s your choice to live a life that matters. Elvis Presley failed to choose the things he knew should have really mattered. In an interview with Priscilla, his ex-wife that he married when she was just sixteen years old or so, she said,

“Elvis never came to terms with who he was meant to be or what his purpose in life was, he thought he was here for a reason, maybe to preach, maybe to serve, maybe to save, maybe to care for people. That agonizing desire was always with him and he knew he wasn’t fulfilling it. So he had gone on stage and he wouldn’t have to think about it.” It’s obvious that Elvis knew he had a divine purpose why he was here on earth, but so sad to know that he voluntarily ignored God’s blueprint of his life leading him to a tragic end which is the prize of foregoing his significance in exchange of temporary happiness.

What really matters is not what you have on earth because they won’t last. What matters is the significance of why you are here on earth. God has called you out of darkness and gave meaning to your life by becoming a part of the Body of Christ, He called Church. You will probably tell me that you are a “nobody” and that the Church can still go on without you. Yes that is true. A person will continue to live even if he or she lost one of his fingers. In fact, others could still live even if what they only have is the trunk of their body that holds their head without hands and feet. But of course, they can move much better if their body parts are complete. It’s the same thing with the Church which is the Body of Christ composed of the believers. The Body of Christ can move much better if all the parts of the Body are doing their respective roles in reconciling the lost world to Him as recorded in 2Corinthians 5:17-21. You are God’s ambassador to all men. Living apart from that purpose is living an empty life even if he or she has everything in this world. Living apart from God’s purpose is like a full stomach suffering from indigestion. What must a person do then? It is to live your significance of doing God’s purpose that will give you a happy and satisfying life for all other else will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).

Bewildered and still groping in the dark not finding your significance? Come to God and ask for His purpose in your life. You will surely find Him (James 1:5-7). Don’t just ask for things in this world – what you eat and what you drink. God will fill your stomach anyway. But above all else, look for God. With God you will have everything. Without God you will have nothing because what is only done for Christ will last.
