The Purpose for all things:

Sometimes we might think, “what is the purpose for my life, or what is the purpose why everything exists?” This is a easy question to answer if we know what the scriptures say.

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are IN HEAVEN, and THAT ARE IN EARTH, VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE, whether they BE THRONES, OR DOMINIONS, or PRINCIPALITIES, OR POWERS: ALL THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM, AND FOR HIM: (KJV)

The purpose why ALL things exist in Heaven, in earth, visible, or invisible, whether they be thrones, dominions, or principalities, or powers, ALL things were made by, and for Jesus Christ!!! Everything in existence no matter who or what it is was created by, and for Jesus Christ who is Lord!!

The all “THINGS” that were created by him also includes people!! Our life derives from having a purpose. If a person has no purpose then that person would not exist today!!! The purpose for our bodies is for the Lord!!

1Co 6:13 Some of you say, "Food is for the stomach. And the stomach is for food." But God will destroy both of them. The body is not meant for sexual sins. THE BODY IS MEANT FOR THE LORD. AND THE LORD IS MEANT FOR THE BODY. (NIrV)

The Lord lives in his body, the Church which is us, individually, and corporately as one person!! (the body of Christ) This was the purpose God had before time ever came into existence.
We find that information here........

John 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

No human being, no matter who or when they lived on this earth ever does anything without first having a “PURPOSE” of why they do anything. This is not just a trait that humans have inherently in them. We received this from our maker who also does nothing without first having a purpose!!!

The word, “Word” in this verse has a meaning of having a PURPOSE or MOTIVE in the beginning!!!! It is the Greek word, “Logos” which is were we get our English word for “Logic”. No body does anything without first having a purpose, or motive, and if they did, it would be ILLOGICAL!!!

Notice: within that PURPOSE, (that happens to be Jesus Christ, the Word) which was in the beginning (first in order) there was life.......

John 1:4 IN HIM WAS LIFE; AND THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN.

The life that was in the Word, that was in the beginning was, “the light of men”!!!! The Word had light within its self to give life to men. This life was the eternal purpose propose by God before time began to march on. It has always been the Lord God's plan from eternity to have a family in which to share his love, and Glory with. There has never been a time, or in ages past before time began that this was not God's desire. As long as God has been around, which is forever, so has man been alive in his Word from the very beginning!!!
