The ultimate reason why God created


The truths of the first chapter of Genesis (Genesis 1:1-31) raise two obvious questions, "What is the purpose of all this? And why did God bring the worlds into existence?" Some would answer by saying that the worlds were created for man's enjoyment. This is true in a limited sense, but as far as the Scriptures are concerned, only one answer is given. The ultimate reason or purpose for the Creation is to glorify God. Such verses as Isaiah 43:7; Proverbs 16:4; Colossians 1:16; and Revelation 4:11 teach this. These verses also include the creation of man. Man also was created for one primary purpose, that being to glorify his Creator.

What planet did God create in the beginning? It was planet Earth (Genesis 1:1). The Bible only says that God put the first man (Adam on planet Earth (Genesis 1:26-28) along with the first woman his wife Eve (Genesis 2:18-25), (Genesis 3:20) on the sixth day of Creation week.

So why was man created in the image of God? What was God's goal and objective? God's purpose for bringing man into being was that he might reflect God's glory. With the coming of sin into the world, however, man can glorify God only one way, and this is by bowing your heart low at the feet of Jesus Christ, confessing Him as Lord and receiving Him as Saviour and living for Him daily. Have you fulfilled this purpose for which you were created? If not, why not take your place at His feet Today and begin living daily for His glory. Amen!

We as Christians who glorify God as Creator, must be loyal to the Word of God (KJV) as never before. We must preach it from our pulpits. We must expound it in and declare it on the mission field. We must speak it on our streets and in the neighborhoods of our cities. We must read it and study it in our homes. We must teach it to our children. We must study it thoughtfully and prayerfully in the privacy of our own rooms. And then we must obey it and submit to its authority and live by its teaching. And this we must do until Jesus calls us home or we meet Him in the Rapture. Amen!

The Lord Jesus Christ, (the Creator of the world and Saviour of His ultimate creation, man) must receive the glory. Amen! "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" (Revelation 4:11).

Psalm 19:1 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork."
