5 Purposes God Created You For

5 Purposes God Created You For March 20, 2019

We were created for a very specific purpose, and here are four specific purposes for which God created you.

To Glorify God

Everything was created for a purpose…including us. The Bible is clear about one of our purposes, and that is that we are to glorify God. For example, if we get into trouble, we are told to “call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me” (Psalm 50:15). The psalmist knew that it was “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness” (Psalm 115:1). Answered prayer gives God glory, so the Lord our God is to be praised and we should seek to glorify His name. We certainly have nothing to boast or brag about. The Lord says, “I am the LORD; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols” (Isaiah 42:8). If you look at the creation, you can see for yourself that “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1), so rightfully we should say, “O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens” (Psalm 8:1). The first purpose for which we were created was to give God glory and make His glory known to others, which brings us to our second purpose…we were created to make disciples for Christ.

To Make Disciples

When Jesus gave the Great Commission, which in essence is an imperative command, He didn’t give them a second option or Plan B. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matt 28:18b), and since God has given Jesus all authority in heaven and on earth, He is passing this authority on to them, which is why He can say, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt 28:19). That doesn’t mean everyone that they share Christ with will become disciples of Christ. They are only told to go and make disciples, but it is generally understood that God will use them as a means to make disciples (Acts 2:47), and He did. He sent them into different parts of the world to bring the gospel since they had God’s authority, but the Commission is not quite finished yet. Jesus tells them that they are to be “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matt 28:20).

Teaching of His Glory

You don’t have to go very far to find out what Jesus taught His disciples (Gospels), and what He taught them to observe (i.e. John 13:34-35), but it’s more than just making disciples. It’s teaching them to observe the same things we learned in the New Testament. So how does making disciples glorify God? The more there are to worship and praise God in the kingdom, the more glory He will receive. In a prophetic Scripture, the psalmist writes, “All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name” (Psalm86:9). In the kingdom, “they [will] sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb” (Rev 15:3a), asking, “Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed” (Rev 15:4). That is one of our purposes. It is to bring as many to Christ as the Lord our God will save, knowing that He alone saves (Acts 4:12), but He is still pleased to use us as a means to save some.

Works for His Glory

We know that we were created to glorify God, and part of that is done through disciple-making. God grants eternal life by His Spirit, and by means of someone sharing His Word. After that, they are taught the same things that Jesus taught His own disciples, and we find those teachings in the Bible. After they become His disciples, they do what He commands them to do (i.e. Matt 25:35-36). In fact, God has prepared works for them to do after they have been saved. The only question is, Will they walk in them (Eph 2:10)? Jesus told His disciples, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples” (John 15:7-8). Fruit never glorifies us but it always glorifies God, because we can do nothing without Christ (John 15:5). We must remain in Him or abide or dwell in the Vine (Christ) or we will only bear wax fruit, and not genuine fruits of the Spirit, but we will also begin to bear good works as a by-product of our salvation, but even this is from the Spirit of God, therefore, all works we do give God glory. There is no good we can do in our own human strength (Isaiah 64:6).

Transformed for His Glory

You’ve probably heard Romans 8:28 multiples times, where Paul writes, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” It doesn’t say that all things are good, or that only the good things work out for our best. It says all things, and I believe that means good and bad things, will work out for our very best. It’s just a matter of time. At the time, it may not look or feel best, but only later will we see clearly that it was for our best…the good, the bad, and the ugly. Despite what it looks like today, we focus on the coming kingdom, because “In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory” (Eph 2:11-12). It never says we will always completely understand that purpose, but I believe we can trust His purpose, even if we don’t fully understand at the moment. After a person is brought to repentance and faith (Rom 2:4; 2 Tim 2:24-26), they become a new creation in Christ (2 Cor 5:17), but the struggle is not over. We are told, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Rom 12:2), and this transformation runs deep. It makes us desire to live a life that is pleasing to please God, and not to please self all the time.

Conclusion

Paul says, that “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31). That about covers everything, doesn’t it? God seeks glory for His name and that’s the reason He created us. “Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made” (Isaiah 43:7), should bring Him glory. There are more than just 4 purposes that we were created for, but there are no less than these four. If you can think of another one, please leave a comment so we can share it with the readers. For example, we know that the day is coming when “The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give” (Isaiah 62:2)…and all of this will give God glory, and that’s just what He deserves.

    You are one of the most stupid people who ever lived or a world class liar and propagandist…or both..

    1. We were NOT “created”…..demonstrate any evidence EVER for any magic anthropromorphic genie calling ANYTHING into existence from nothing….

    2. “gods” do NOT “need” anything let alone “created” slaves to “glorify” themselves. This would be akin to you creating lab rats to “glorify” yourself….it is infantile, absurd, irrational, illogical and patently stupid. All powerful eternal (and invisible and undetectable) “gods” do NOT “NEED” ANYTHING. “call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me” ..except the poor right janitor jack? What kind of make believe egocentric insecure deity do you mindlessly “believe” in jack?….Do you require glorification from a stranger you help out? You “serve” a make believe tyrannical psychotic.

    3. Paul says, that “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” WHO CARES WHAT “paul” SAYS? An Iron Age religious lunatic who had visions whom you know NOTHING about yet you blindly and mindlessly “believe” what a crazy delusional psychotic “claims”……holy shit. What won’t or can’t you “believe” jack?

    In your warped and delusional world view jack, you and the rest of your cult are shit! You are tools of some imaginary celestial dictator…abject slaves….dispensable skin sacks, tiny cogs and tools all for the satisfaction of an all powerful deity who just can’t muster up any self esteem without mindless minions singing songs about him….What an INCREDIBLY STUPID proposition! What did your sulking pouting “god” do for all of time before you were “created” in his heavenly lab?

    • Matthew 22:37

      Atheism is LIVING A LOGICAL FALLACY.

      Why? Because atheists off of incomplete information have the temerity to try and control other people’s conclusions while they act like they think they are smarter than God.

      No wonder you engage in the logical fallacy of ad hominem attacking the Pastor and theists so much.

      Our existence disproves your existence. Maybe you had better to learn how to fight for the devil for a change.

      God exists and your attempts to disprove Him from your false assumptions and lack of information are not enough to disrupt Him from my heart. True disciples do exist in this world. God makes them every day in the people who don’t block Him in their thoughtlives.

      You deliberately blocked Him so you reap what you sowed: social backwardness and ignorance as demonstrated by your continuous ad hominem attacks on theists.

      You are living a lie and it has you displaying your lack of social graces all over this blog.

      I hope you see the light and stop acting like a socially backward Satanist for a change.

      Don’t bother replying or I will block you for an inability to receive God’s revelation.

      • pud

        LOL..good morning lunatic!

        “A”theism is non belief in theism. YOU are an “A”theist towards every other religious cult except your own.

        Demonstrate that any “devil” exists

        Demonstrate that any “god” exists

        FAIL

        • Matthew 22:37

          You demonstrate that Satan exists to me every time you post.

          You let him rule your thoughtlife by disobeying God.

          • pud

            That is NOT a demonstration of fact is it? It’s just another of your irrational mindless superstitious claims isn’t it?

          • Matthew 22:37

            You keep engaging in ad hominem attacks which are a logical fallacy.

            So clearly something is appealing to and trying to control your emotions and sabotaging your intellect.

            You get ugly with people in almost every post displaying a lack of social intelligence yet expecting people to respect you while you subject them to constant disrespect.

            A Christian knows to show others respect because they are made in the image of God.

            But you are busy banning that image in everybody so you can disrespect, bully and control them.

            What kind of a weak thinker gives into a person trying to intellectually bully them?

            I am not surrendering my thought life to you. Look what you are doing disrespecting all these theists day in and day out.

            Wake up and admit it. You lack social intelligence when you do that so you had better go to God admit you are wrong and ask Him for some social intelligence.

            No man is an island but who wants to hang out with an intellectual bully?

            Start dealing with reality pud and admit you are wrong for once in your life.

            Yeah? So what? Who cares? Evolution has NOTHING to do with “gods”

            Denying something is NOT the same as simply not believing in something. duh

            The “gods” you constantly fail to demonstrate actually “exst”

            Einstein said: “In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognise, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for support of such views.”

            Einstein, in a conversation with Prinz Hubertus zu Löwenstein, in Löwenstein’s book Towards the Further Shore (London: Victor Gollancz, 1968), p.156, quoted in Max Jammer, Einstein and Religion (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1999), p.97

            Again…so what…Newton believed in a “god” but was a raging lunatic looking for secret texts and trying to turn lead into gold. Smart people can still be delusional.

            Demonstrate that any “god” ever existed….quote mining is infantile

          • Matthew 22:37

            I am not redoing work that has already been done.

            Locate it yourself.

            I don’t totally agree with agnostic evolutionist Gould but you should go along with him on non-overlapping magisteria instead of meddling with people who may have better ethics than you do.

            You have no right to override the value system of someone who doesn’t agree with you.

            Non-overlapping magisteria:

            Non-overlapping magisteria (NOMA) is the view advocated by Stephen Jay Gould that science and religion each represent different areas of inquiry – fact vs. values – so that there is a difference between the “nets” over which they have “a legitimate magisterium, or domain of teaching authority,” and these two domains do not overlap.

            You’re not a true free thinker or you would respect other people’s right to think for themselves more.

            Astrophysicist, cosmologist and and Templeton Prize winner, Paul Davies, who turned from atheism to deism did so because he found a mind behind the organization of the cosmos.

            On top of that he explains the first major premise of materialism can be refuted by things he learned from his scientific studies of the universe.

          • pud

            Quote mine and selectively latch onto whatever supports your delusional “beliefs” It is totally dishonest.

            I don’t care what the lunatic Davies thought or did or delusionally believed about anything

            99% of ALL scientists are NON BELIEVERS in your mythology. So I win by shear weight of numbers using your stupid methodology of selective quotations

            I don’t have to. You’re the one who believes in randomness. Get a copy of Davies’ book The Mind of God and read it or go read his article Materialism is Flawed and his proof of God section on his philosophyofscience dot com site.

            He was really convinced by the fine tuning argument and other things he explains in his proof of God section.

            I am not arguing. You claim to want evidence then go examine it or stop claiming it is necessary.

          • pud

            That proves that both you and he are imbeciles…The “fine tuning argument” has been refuted a million and one times. We adapted to the universe not the other way around. The universe is a set of one and you have no other one to compare it to to conclude it’s improbable without some magic man pulling levers. I know all about every single one of your lame apologists arguments that fool only the gullible and uneducated. NONE of them have ANY validity whatsoever and have been roundly defeated for decades if not centuries….

            There is NO evidence for ANYTHING you have ever babbled..NONE. Only claims and assertions

            Davies says:

            I used to be a practitioner and promoter of Scientism – the philosophical belief that Science and the Scientific Method is the only way to find and know the truth.

            The Scientific Method is a good way for coming to know the truth; but, most people do not realize that the Scientific Method is not a foolproof way of knowing the truth nor is it the best way for finding and knowing the truth.

            Google Davies’ “The Scientific Method Is Based Upon Affirming the Consequent” and read it.

          • pud

            More proof that he’s an idiot! Science makes no such claim to the ONLY way to find out anything. It IS the best method we as humans have ever come up with to model the natural world. Science does not make ANY truth claims whatsoever. This proves not only how gullible you are but how dishonest this liar is.

          • Matthew 22:37

            I read some very intelligent people online discussing his views and book.

            You can read it for yourself. Why would you want a secondhand summary from a layman who isn’t expert in science? So you could control me?

            I don’t believe in using the scientific method to understand and weigh subjective truth. My own mind is good enough.

            Christianity contains both subjective and objective truth.

            I will put you on block and stop getting you additional info. It seems to upset you.

            You just used a logical fallacy to attack me again.

            If you need evidence then you will have to put the work in examining what the trained scientist has to say.

            I am not a trained scientist. I could never explain Davies conclusions about science as well as he being an astrophysicist could.

            My reasoning is different from your’s and Davies. I weigh things differently and prioritize things differently from you. I have a spiritual personality type according to Jung.

    North Korea again identified as the worst country for Christians
    January 22, 2019 North Korea

    “In North Korea, where there are about 300,000 Christians out of a total population of 25.6 million, Christians are seen as ‘hostiles to be eradicated,’ the report says.” There is at least one Orthodox parish in North Korea, the Church of the Life-Giving Trinity in Pyongyang, but its present situation is unclear. Please pray that North Korea would continue to open itself to the world, and that this would result in justice for the nation’s threatened Christians.

    “Group identifies North Korea as worst country for Christians,” by John Burger, Aleteia, January 20, 2019:
    North Korea tops the list of the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian, according to a report from a watchdog group that monitors religious freedom.

    Open Doors, which assists Christians in areas of the world where persecution is rampant, publishes the World Watch List, an annual report on the global persecution of Christians. The report, which comes out at the beginning of each year, ranks the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted for their faith. The list uses data from Open Doors field workers and external experts to quantify and analyze persecution worldwide.
    Countries are ranked by the severity of persecution of Christians, calculated by analyzing the level of violent persecution plus the pressure experienced in five spheres of life.

    This year, the group has found a sharp increase in persecution of Christians in the world’s two most populous countries. For the first time since the start of the World Watch List, India has entered the top 10. And China jumped 16 spots, from 43 to 27….

    In North Korea, where there are about 300,000 Christians out of a total population of 25.6 million, Christians are seen as “hostiles to be eradicated,” the report says. “There was hope that new diplomatic efforts in 2018— including the 2018 Winter Olympics—would mean a lessening of pressure and violence against Christians, but so far that has not been the case. Kim Jong-un has maintained tight control over the populace, and dissent or worshiping anything else is not tolerated.”

    After North Korea, the other nations on the top 10 list are Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen, Iran and India.

    Here’s an interesting site to read. Start with this article:
    The Logic or Thinking behind Naturalism and Its Derivatives Is Flawed
    on philosophy-of-science dot com

    Quote:
    I and many others have observed that Materialism of any kind is based upon a refusal to look at evidence. My Materialism and My Atheism were based upon a refusal to look at any contradictory evidence. Materialism is deliberately limited and purposefully exclusionary. Materialism is an extremely poor foundation from which to do philosophy and science because Materialism deliberately eliminates the most interesting scientific disciplines from consideration. Rocks can’t do philosophy and science. That’s just the reality of the situation. The rocks did NOT design and create and produce our proteins, genes, genomes, eyes, brains, and physical bodies. Entropy would prevent the rocks from doing so. There’s no such thing as spontaneous generation. Spontaneous generation has been falsified by Science.

    Once we know that Materialism is false and why it is false, then we can no longer use Materialism and Naturalism as our model of reality nor as our basis for science. Consequently, we find ourselves looking for a better and more sustainable model for reality. – end quote

YOU BELIEVE that an invisible, undetectable, super natural agent created everything out of nothing via an incantation! It is YOU who is out of his mind.

    Religion is a fraud created by leeches to gain wealth and power at the expense of humanity.

  • Matthew 22:37

    Ad hominem attacks are a logical fallacy. Why do so many internet atheists engage in this logical fallacy when engaging theists when they claim to like logic so much? Isn’t that self contradictory?

    Google it.

    Dr. Jason Lisle explains it:

    The fallacy comes in two varieties: abusive ad hominem and circumstantial ad hominem. In the abusive ad hominem, the critic attacks his opponent’s character or insults him in an attempt to discredit him in the eyes of the audience. This tactic is common in politics, and it may psychologically sway people. However, it is logically fallacious because a person’s character (or lack thereof) is logically irrelevant to the validity of his argument. Even if the critic’s negative claims about his opponent are true (e.g., he really is a draft-dodger, or he really did spend time in jail), this has no bearing on the position he is advocating. – end quote

    Almost every time pud or certain other atheists address Pastor Wellman with a personal criticism he is engaging in a logical fallacy.

    Welcome to the internet where the socially backwards mercilessly subject people to this tactic of logical fallacy almost constantly.

    Is it any wonder they get ignored.

  • Matthew 22:37

    Atheism is LIVING A LOGICAL FALLACY.

    Why? Because atheists off of incomplete information have the temerity to try and control other people’s conclusions while they act like they think they are smarter than God.

      Demonstrate that ANY “god” ever existed.

      Non believers do not have a “great commission” to indoctrinate everyone they can into their specific cult …do they?

      • Matthew 22:37

        How do you know some of them haven’t substituted human motives for God’s?

        They censor schools so creationism and ID cannot be taught in school.

        That is not freedom of speech or free thinking.

        Who said the pro-evolution scientists get to control the world and squelch everyone else’s right to think freely?

          LOL

          “creationism” is bullshit make believe that has NO facts or evidence whatsoever therefore it doesn’t qualify as anything that can even be taught….only “believed” Schools do not teach “beliefs” as science. How about if they taught the Apache “beliefs” on “creation” or the Hindu “beliefs” on “creation”?

          ID is bullshit too. There is no evidence whatsoever for “design” of anything natural by anything or anyone.

          Evolution is a FACT and a THEORY…the highest standing anything can have. It is supported by reams of actual EVIDENCE while your make believe has NOTHING.

    The religious hucksters…

    “The shrewdest fraudsters don’t sell us fake medicine for real aches and pains. When the pain persists the game is up. The shrewdest fraudsters sell us fake illnesses and imaginary defects. Then the game can endure for a lifetime”

    This is what you do for a living jack…think about it

      Yes, to some, but for many, they are saved by the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18).

      • Myles

        Trying to prove that yours is the best argument by using a quote from a murderous fairy tale isn’t exactly brilliant.

        Gods exist only in the minds of the mentally ill. Get help.

    Amen, Pastor Jack. May all glory be given to God our Savior. Thank you.
