God created you for…what?
The LORD hath made all [things] for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Pro 16:4 KJV
First we see here that God made all things for Himself.
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. Rev 4:11 KJV
God made all things for His pleasure. See my previous post that explores this particular purpose: http://www.cherylcope.com/what-were-you-created-for
[Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Isa 43:7 KJV
God created us for His glory.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph 2:10 KJV
God created us for good works—good works that He ordained (not ones of our own choosing!).
Putting it all together then, we were created by God for Him, for His glory, for His pleasure and for His good works.
This sure sounds like this is all about God and not about us!! So let’s stop thinking all about ourselves and instead think about God! Think about how we can please Him, how we can praise Him, how we can serve Him with good works, and how we can bring Him glory.
What are some ways that you can think of or ways that you’ve already been doing, that fit into those categories? Please share in the comment section below. Scroll down to almost the bottom and look for “leave a message” or “leave a reply”.
