 08B.   God Created Man For Himself


Every object of creation, including man, has a use or value.  It is only man, however, who is ever searching for the reason for his creation.  This is because here on earth, only man has that capacity for reason and rationality.

08B.1   What should man realize about his existence?  What is the reason why he is alive here on earth?

In the following verses, this is written: 

Try to realize what this means--the Lord is God! He made us--we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.  (Psalms 100:3, LVB)

The same verse in another version of the Bible:
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!  He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. (Psalms 100:3, NLT)

"I am the Lord, your savior; I am the one who created you. I am the Lord, the Creator of all things. I alone stretch out the heavens; when I made the earth, no one helped me." (Isaiah 44:24, TEV) 

"The Lord created the heavens -- He is the one who is God! He formed and made the earth -- He made it firm and lasting. He did not make it a desolate waste, but a place where people to live. It is He who says, "I am the Lord and there is no other god". (Isaiah 45:18, TEV)

Man must realize and acknowledge:

  • that the Lord is God. He is the Lord and Savior. He is the Lord and there is no other god.
  • that it is God who made us -- we are His people, the  sheep of His pasture.

Man must also realize:  

  • that we are one of God's creations. 
  • that God created us and we are not a product of evolution as what many people believe it to be. 
  • that we did not evolve from a single cell or organism or from a previous simpler substances by gradual successive accumulation of fortuitous mutations after millions or billions of years, which basically purport that man came about by accident, by chance -- and that there is no evidence of intelligent design.

08B.2   We know that all other earthly creatures are given to man (Gen. 1:19-26 & Gen. 9:2) as purposed by God, but to whom does man belong? 

In Christ, God chose us before the world began. He wanted us to be holy and spotless before Him in love. (Ephesians 1:4, IEB)

Man, according to the sublime purpose of God, has been chosen by God for Himself, "God chose us before the world began".  Thus , the Creator has a purpose in creating man. It is He alone who conceived the grand design man's existence.
