Summary: God created you for His glory and He designed you. You are not an accident.
My wife is a very wise shopper. She, there are many things about her that I love. In the morning service I said that there were many, many, many, many, many, many things cuz she was sitting right there. But there are many things about my wife that I love. 1 of them is that she is a very wise shopper. She goes to, I have to, I wrote em down cuz I want to make sure I got the place right. Ah Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, Home Goods kind of like where you get name brand stuff for cheap. She’s always coming home saying – Look what I got. Guess how much? And she’s bragging about her, her deals. But sometimes I don’t understand what it is that she has bought. So she’ll show it to me and she may even tell me the name but I have to ask why? Like what does it do?
So for all you guys that live with women you probably notice some things in your house that you don’t understand what it’s for. Like she came back with a thing and it sat on the table and I said – What is that? She says – this is what you put napkins in for the, for the table. I says – Well why can’t you just lay them on the table? Fellas can I get an amen? Or a box that you put the Kleenex box in. Fellas are you, am I the only one? Does they, it already has a box.
I wrote a couple of these things down. Let me see, Tupperware! Tupperware, I love Tupperware. My mother bought Tupperware when I was a kid but you know how you have all these different sizes? Why don’t you just get one and it has everything? It can hold everything. You don’t need those small tubs. Anyway.
Today when I went home I was starting to look. We, we had a conversation about this when I went home today after the morning services. I started looking around at the stuff in the kitchen and I noticed that she had these glass jars with pasta in them. You know the different color pastas? And that thing’s been sitting there for like years and I’m like – When are we gonna eat that pasta? Right? Aren’t you supposed to eat it? Right, right see I don’t get that. I don’t get that. Then you had thee, you have plates that have words on them and they just sit in the corner standing up. Now plates usually lay flat. You put food on top. These plates just sit. So I don’t get it.
So I always ask you know – Why this? Why that? Why this? And whenever you ask a why question you’re asking a question about purpose. What is the purpose? And as we continue the series called Who is God, everyone say who is God, as we continue the series about who is God we’ve been looking over the last few weeks using this living room behind me as a metaphor, we’ve been looking at the evidence that there not only is a God but the evidence of what kind of God He is and what kind of relationship we should have with this God based on that living room.
Let’s do a little review. We, we ah learned that a few weeks ago that the living room is a limited object. A limited object is an object that cannot start or create itself. Everything you know of, everything you’ve ever seen is a limited object. It was created by something else and so when we look at this living room the TV was created by someone else. The picture on the wall, the clock, the couch is all a limited object. So based on the definition of a limited object we learned that somebody had to cause the living room.
And then after we learned that someone had to cause the living room, it couldn’t have caused by itself. We also learned that someone had to design the living room. Everyone say cause, say design. So we learned that someone had to cause and we, we learned that someone had to design the living room. We came to the conclusion that a man caused the living rooms. People put it there.
And then we started saying – someone also had to cause this building. The building is a limited object and it couldn’t have caused itself. Your car is a limited object. Your shirt, your shoes, your socks, it’s all limited objects. All those things had to be caused or created by somebody and they had to be designed by somebody.
