Recently my 7 year old daughter asked me, “Why did God make people?” Which got me thinking because God doesn’t need us, so why would He make us?
Here are some things I found in scripture.
Genesis 1 tells us we were created in God’s image (which is love), we were intended to care for all his beautiful creation (He is sharing it with us!), and also to be fruitful and multiply (making disciples).
Galatians 5:13 says we were called to live freely but not to indulge in that freedom to be selfish but to use that freedom to serve others.
Deuteronomy 4:24 tells us that God is a jealous God. He wants us to want a relationship with him. The King of Kings WANTS you!
Ultimately we were made to:
Love God’s creation
But how awesome is it to know that God didn’t make us because He needed us but because He WANTS us and wants us to experience all this love! ❤️
