A Life of Significance

Everything was made with the purpose of pointing our hearts and minds back to our Creator. That is the whole reason why we exist.

Life of Significance Devotional

Searching for Significance

We’re all searching for something in life. Whether you want to call it significance, purpose, meaning or something else, there is an innate desire in each of us for our life to matter — to have significance and purpose.

We want to explore that desire with you from a biblical perspective and dive into God’s view of your worth. That’s why we created a seven-day devotional, “Searching for Significance.” Each day we’ll explore a different part of God’s perfect plan for your life, and how he ultimately wants you to find purpose and significance through bringing him glory.

The Significance of One Word

Like many people, maybe you’ve wondered how you can live a meaningful and significant life. The truth is that we are living significant lives simply because we have been made in the image of God — and he is the one who gives us purpose. We asked people to share with us one word they would use to describe how they live with significance and purpose each day, and their answers were as varied and vibrant as the people themselves.
