All Things Were Created To Please And Glorify God

Isaiah 43:7, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”

1st Corinthians 6:20, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”

Revelation 4:11, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

A foundational Bible principle is that all things were created for God's pleasure. Every human being was created to glorify God. That is our purpose on earth. Ecclesiastes 12:13, “
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” Our purpose for existence is to glorify God. We glorify God when we obey Him and keep His commandments.

When we sin we're not giving glory to God, we bring shame to Him. Especially as Christians, we are bought with a price the Bible teaches. That price is the precious blood of Jesus (1st Peter 1:18-19). 1st Corinthians 6:20, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” If you are a born again believer, your body and spirit belong to God, by both creation and redemption.

This is why the Apostle Paul said in Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” God does not require anything from us in return for saving us. Eternal life is a free gift, paid for by the precious body and blood which Jesus sacrificed for our sins.

Even though we are not debtor to repay Christ's payment for our sins, it is only reasonable that we lay down our life as a living sacrifice. It is not required, but it is appropriate and ethical. The Lord is so good that even after all He has done to rescue us from eternal damnation in Hell, He is going to reward us for all of our labors for Him (1st Corinthians 3:8). God is so good. Isaiah 43:7, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.” God is worthy of our sincerest praise and gratitude.

Most religious people are phonies. They attend church and superficially praise God, sing religious songs and go through all the motions of playing church. Matthew 15:7-8, “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.” Pensacola Christian College is a prime offender. They are like the sinking Titanic ship. The grew and passengers are arranging deck chairs up on top, while the frigid icy Atlantic ocean is fast flooding into the leaking compartments and the ship is going down.

The churches today are apostate and pathetic. They have replaced preaching with entertainment. They have substituted the old hymns of the faith with lifeless Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). The new music s awful, lacking pretty melody, beautiful harmony and the profound meaning of lyrics that the old time hymns of the faith had. Today's music is garbage! There is no Holy Spirit conviction anymore in churches. No wonder church attendance is now at an all-time low in the United States,

So, please remember that you and I were made to please and glorify God with our life. Thank you for reading my blog.
