Created for His Glory
Shout joyfully , you lower parts of the earth; Break forth into a shout of joy , you mountains, O forest, and every tree in it; For the Lord has redeemed Jacob And in Israel He shows forth His glory. The answer of course is that there is one God with multiple divine persons hinted at in Genesis 1.
Clearly this is the Lord speaking, the same One who in v. After talking about His hand directly creating the heavens and the earth in v. Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? Surely you know! Even back in Genesis 1, there were already hints of this, such as the plural noun elohim with singular verbs, as was shared in Sunday school.
10 Bible Verses About Glory — walk in love.
Ephesians NASB95 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world , that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace. Wrapped up in that promise was the entire redemptive plan of God. In short, the Father had promised the Son a redeemed people for His bride.
And the Son had promised to die in order to redeem them. All of this occurred in eternity past, before creation. Jesus in turn redeemed a particular group of people — some theologians call this particular redemption - Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, in the same way that husbands are to love their own wives.
Christ atoned for, purchased, saved, sanctified, and washed the bride so that they would be pure and blameless on that day. Notice that before the world existed, Father and Son shared glory. What else was true before the foundation of the world?
In eternity past the Trinity shared glory and shared an eternal love and relationship. Before there was time There were visions in Your mind There was death in the fall of mankind But there was life in salvation's design …. Before there was time You counted the hairs on my head You knew all the words I've said And You purchased me back from the dead. You saved me, You raised me You saved me, You pulled me from the grave. If you cannot sing or say those words that you know God has saved you and raised you from spiritual death and pulled you away from your grave and sinful life before Christ — today is the day to glorify God by bowing your knee to Christ.
Is God Sovereign? But that should not prevent you from action, that should motivate you to bow before the Sovereign King. If God alone is the one who saves, all the more reason to plead before Him to save you. He rejects none who come truly. For You alone are holy; For all the nations will come and worship before You, For Your righteous acts have been revealed.

PURPOSE: Intentionally Living For God
Upload sermon. Sort order. Feb 22, J. Elliott rated it it was ok.
Stifled by the strange insistence on the use of an outdated translation of the scriptures and a seemingly arbitrary list of innocuous things that BJU has determined are sinful, this otherwise well meaning and big hearted exploration of Ephesians is at best uninspiring. At worst it presents an image of a capricious god who has forced our hand into sinning and punished us dearly for his own decision. Whose only reason to do so is an elaborate dog show to make himself look better Berg's metaphor, Stifled by the strange insistence on the use of an outdated translation of the scriptures and a seemingly arbitrary list of innocuous things that BJU has determined are sinful, this otherwise well meaning and big hearted exploration of Ephesians is at best uninspiring.
Whose only reason to do so is an elaborate dog show to make himself look better Berg's metaphor, not mine. There are better guides to Christian living than this. Namely, the plain and simple text of Ephesians itself. Especially if read from reliable texts in a relevent translation. This is one of the best book on the purpose of man that I have ever read.

Many of the chapters are standouts--especially those on what it means to live in "the fear of God. Well written, deep, practical with illustrations, but easy to follow. I would recommend this to anyone who wonders why we exist and what their purpose might be. An excellent book that should be read by every Christian. Well documented with Scripture.
We Exist for the Glory of God
I recommend that before a person starts reading the main text of the book, that he go to the back of the book and read Appendix B titled: 'Salvation: Divine Determination or Human Responsibility' written by Layton Talbert. Shelves: spiritual-development. A great book I went through with my men's bible study group. Generated tons of discussion and caused for me a great amount of personal examination and recognition of where I need to more align my life with God's purposes for me.
Mar 04, Teddy Jo rated it it was amazing. What a book explaining why God created us and our purpose while here on earth.
It gave me a better understanding of how we are to respond to our earthly authorities which ultimately reflects how we respond to Jesus Christ. Not nearly as good as Changed into His Image. Created for his Glory is a practical manual for Christian growth and maturity. Sep 19, Conaway rated it really liked it.
Very applicable in seeing from the reading of the book with the study guide the wonder of God and the creation account expressing his majesty. Camille K.
