Why Did God Create You?

"What we have seen and [ourselves] heard we are also telling you, so

that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers

with us. And [this] fellowship that we have (which is a distinguishing

mark of Christians) is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ,

the Messiah."

-- (1 John 1:3, The Amplified Bible)

Four persons with whom to have fellowship:

1. God the Father (Isaiah 57:15; John 14:23; John 17:21-23; 1 Cor. 6:13; 1 John 1:3-7)

2. God the Son (Matthew 18:20; John 14:23; John 15:1-8; 1 Cor. 1:9; 1 Cor. 10:16; 1 John 1:3-7)

3. God the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9; 1 Cor. 3:16; 2 Cor. 13:14; Phil. 2:1)

4. The Christian (Acts 1:14; Acts 2:1,42-47; Ephes. 5:19; Phil. 2:1-2; 1 John 1:3-7)

Man is something really special. He is made in the image of God. He is

made to have fellowship with God.

Some people get the idea that God made man so He’d have someone to

dominate. But God is not a dominator. God is love and love needs to give

to someone. That’s why God made man. He made him so He could give him

His love.

God could have given His love to the angels, and He did that. But giving

to angels didn’t provide total fulfillment. Why? Because angels aren’t

made in His image.

You’re the same way. Let’s say, for example, you have a puppy as a pet.

You can fellowship with that little pet just so much, but then there

comes a time when you need to talk to somebody. There comes a time when

you need to have communication on your own level.

The reason you’re like that is because you’re created in the image of

God. That’s how He is. He has a desire to fellowship with someone like


Dare to believe you’re something really special today--a one-of-a-kind

creation made by God in His very own image. Dare to receive His love and

dare to love Him back!
