How the Bible changed my life?

How the Bible changed my life? One summer I travelled around Europe with other teachers. We visited Westminster Abbey, Notre Dame de Paris and the Vatican, as well as many small churches. And everywhere I asked a lot of questions. Back home, I visited several churches. But no one could answer my questions.

ROSALINDA, who grew up in England, had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. She also wanted to help people. So she took a job that included helping the homeless. She also helped the disabled and the hard to learn. After graduating from university, she got a prestigious position. But, even while doing a job she enjoyed and having material wealth, she kept asking herself: “What are we living for? What is the meaning of life?”

The question about the meaning of life can sound in different ways, such as: “Why am I living?”, “Is there a purpose to my life?” The Bible reveals to us that the meaning of our lives is to develop a friendship with God. Here are some of the most important biblical truths.

Humans, unlike animals, have minds. We can learn from past mistakes, plan for the future and search for the meaning of life.

Many people think that the main purpose of life is to achieve wealth and fame, that this is what brings happiness.

It is up to the individual to decide what is most important in life. Personal desires and preferences are more important than God’s will.

God wants life to bring us joy. Solomon wrote, “There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and let his soul enjoy the good fruits of his labour. I saw that this also is from the hand of the true God” (Ecclesiastes 2:24).

God also wants us to love and care for our family. Notice the simple, practical instructions given to each member of the family:

“Husbands should love their wives as their own bodies” (Ephesians 5:28).
“A wife should deeply respect her husband” (Ephesians 5:33).
“Children, be obedient to your parents” (Ephesians 6:1).

Applying these biblical principles will help us find happiness and contentment. But the most important thing we can do today is to learn as much as we can about our Creator and develop a friendship with Him. The Bible urges, “Draw near to God.” Then “he will draw near to you” (James 4:8). If you respond to this invitation, your life will become truly meaningful.

God is our Creator. The Bible says, “He [God] made us, not we made ourselves” (Psalm 100:3; Revelation 4:11).

God has provided a purpose for all of his creations, including us (Isaiah 45:18).

God created us with “spiritual needs,” including the need to find meaning in life (Matthew 5:3). And he wants that need to be met (Psalm145:16).

We meet our spiritual needs by developing a friendship with God. Although the very thought of becoming God’s friend may seem unrealistic to some, the Bible encourages us, “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you” (James 4:8; 2:23).


I treasure my relationship with God. I feel real peace and deep joy in knowing him. It also brings me great happiness to be in fellowship with the believers. I have never been so happy! I have found the real meaning of life and I am very grateful to God for that.

What I learnt from the Bible breathed joy into my life and filled the emptiness in my heart.

When it comes to the Bible, some people say, “I’m too busy,” “It’s a very difficult book,” “I don’t want to commit myself. But there are people who think differently. They have taken the opportunity to learn what the Bible teaches.

These statements confirm the words of Jesus Christ: “Happy are those who recognise their spiritual needs” (Matthew 5:3). Yes, every person has innate spiritual needs. Only God can fulfil them and fill the inner emptiness. He uses His Word, the Bible, to do this.

Belief in the good intentions of a person. Belief in a good, bright future. Belief in yourself. Faith in another person. Belief in the existence of a higher power, in God. Faith is very multifaceted. But what is it – a feeling, a psychological attitude…
