Why are we here? Why did God create us?
Have you ever pondered these questions?
I have heard the "answers" as I am sure you have as well. God created us to worship Him. God created us to obey Him. God created us because He was lonely.
I don't think so. Creating us had NOTHING to do with God "needing" anything.
Jn 5:26 says "God has LIFE in Himself."
If you have LIFE, if LIFE is your nature, then you don't need anyone or anything.
Then why did God create us?
I think it has something to do with I John 4. "God is love... and love is FROM God". God created us because He wanted to share His LIFE and LOVE with us. It was not about us being here to do something for God, but us being here so God could do something for us... LOVE US!
The verse goes on to say that we, in turn, LOVE God and others because that is what LOVE from God does.
Hmmmmmmm... Think about it!
Why did you have kids?
Did you have kids to worship you and obey you? If you did, you are in for a rude awakening!!!
No, you had kids to share your life and love with them. Where did you get that idea?
Perhaps from the original first Lover Who wanted to share His LIFE and LOVE. (pretty cool to be so loved)
