Revelation 4:11. The definition of the meaning of life is quite simple. It is to please God. The meaning of life is to glorify, honor, and love God ( Revelation 4:11, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."). This is why God created us. He created us to love Him and worship Him. He created mankind with a soul that has the capability to love God just as God loves us. God desires for His unique creation, mankind, to freely love Him.
The reason it is easy to get confused about the meaning of life is that God gave us a choice. God gives us the choice to freely love Him or not to love Him. God gives us this freedom to choose because He wants us to freely love Him. If he did not give us free will, he could not receive our love. Love can only be freely given to another.
It is precisely our free will that gets us confused on what is the meaning of life. We get caught up in all the different choices in life. "Should I go to college? Should I pursue this career field? Should I marry this person?" With free will we think there are all these choices in life (the meanings of life). The bottomline is for us not to get confused by all these temporary choices.
In all the hustle and bustle of life, you have one eternal purpose and two choices. Your one purpose is to love and worship God. Your two choices are to love God or disobey God.
