Everyday Why Created
Why did God create us in the first place. I don’t have the answer, but I think it’s because He wanted someone in His image to love. In the beginning of creation, He gives His creation a freewill to love Him back too. Forcing someone to love you is not real love.
I like what Pastor John Piper has to say on the purpose of creation being one of the most amazing things about God and without us on His created earth His grace could not be realized. That is why He created us. He knew we would sin, so He chose Christ’s sacrifice before creation - because He wanted to reveal the glory of His grace. This earth experience is hard with hard circumstances like our health and broken relationships and yet we have the hope of God’s promises and in faith we can SEE His grace displayed with love now and in heaven. God isn’t limited by our sin - only we are.” This earth is not our final destination. We have the hope of living perfectly with purpose by the righteousness of God…everyday.
