Why Did God Create Man?

God created man for good works. (Ephesians 2:10) Man is not here to do his own thing, but to do the work that God gives him to do.

God created man for fellowship. He created man, male and female, in His own image. (Genesis 1:27) Each person is created for fellowship with God. (1Corinthians 1:9) This fellowship was to be based on obedience. (Genesis 2:15-17)

God created man for eternal life. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) When man rebelled against God, he lost both his fellowship with God, and his eternal life. (Genesis 3:24) Jesus came to restore us to life and fellowship. (John 10:10)

In God's presence alone can you find the joy and fillment you were created to experience. He alone can make you whole.(Psalm 16:11)
