Myles Munroe was a Bahamian evangelist and ordained minister of the Kingdom of God. He was born on 20th April 1954 and grew up in a poor family of eleven children. He founded the Bahamas Faith Ministries International (BFMI) and Myles Munroe International (MMI). He also served as co-pastor at BFMI. He was honored as OBE(The Most Excellent Order of British Empire) for “service to religion” in 1998. He was the author of numerous books and biblical-related articles.

“God’s will and desire—His pleasure—is that we love Him. We cannot please God unless we love Him. We cannot love Him unless we know Him, and we cannot know Him unless we have faith in Him.”

Myles Munroe

Myles takes on the Purpose of Life-

The purpose is when a human being knows and understands what he is born to accomplish and is the key to life. Without Purpose of life has no meaning. The greatest tragedy of life is not death but a life without reason. The Purpose is the only source of the individual. It is the master of motivation and mother of commitment. He explains there is one entity, God does not operate on earth, and that is Human willpower because will implies the nature of self-control and leads to consciousness.

“The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”

Myles Munroe

He speaks “failure” in life is one of the keys to finding the Purpose of life if dealt with deliberately. He says those who fail are the luckiest person in the world because they have the reason to find behind why he fails, why it did not work out, and many other questions arise which will eventually take you to the meaning of life.

“When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.”

Myles Munroe

He further explains one can find his purpose of existence by answering below five questions. Every human being seeks success, and to be successful, he should answer those five questions. These five questions control the human race and are the cause of all our human behavior.

He has reduced all of human life to five questions:

  • WHO AM I ? – IDENTITY
  • WHERE AM I FROM? – SOURCE
  • WHY AM I HERE? – PURPOSE
  • WHAT CAN I DO? – POTENTIAL
  • WHERE AM I GOING? – DESTINY

These questions are Universal. All the above questions are connected. If one wants to experience the divine, then he has to find the answer for himself.

“Being open to correction means making ourselves vulnerable, and many people are not willing to do that.”
