WHY DID GOD CREATE ME AND WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF MY EXISTENCE?
Biblical and Scriptural analysis of the question above!
Let’s take a look from God’s perspective. What were you designed for and what is your purpose?
1 Peter 2:9-10 (NASB)
9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.
We were created to exist for God and to become a people for His own possession. Our purpose is to proclaim the excellencies of Him who gave us our existence in the beginning. (Rev, 4:11) Note how God calls us out of darkness and into His light. Not everyone is a people of God, only those who desire to be.
Titus 2:11-14 (NASB)
11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
Again we were created to be a people for God’s own possession and to reflect the very nature of God. He is purifying and transforming those who are His for His own possession. (Phil 2:12-13)
Colossians 1:15-17 (NASB)
15 He is the image of the invisible God, (Christ) the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
Christ stepped out of Heaven in the form of a man, seeking to claim a people for Himself, showing His love and character during His journey on earth. We must realize that we were created for God’s purposes, not merely our benefit.
WHY DO WE EXIST? We were created by Him and for Him.
WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE? To proclaim the excellences of Him who gave us our very existence.
Q1: Do you feel you are of God and desire to please Him who gave you your very existence?
Q2: What do most people seek, and what would they say is their purpose in life?
