“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.” Isaiah 43:7Text — Isaiah 43:3-7
Every manufacturer has a reason or purpose for manufacturing or creating a thing. God is our Creator and He has purpose for every person He has created. It is good we know the purpose of God for our lives so that we can fit into it. It is sometimes important to ask ourselves some questions: why has God created us? What is the purpose of our creation? What does the Bible say about God and His creatures? The Bible points out that all things are created for God’s glory. We can see through the word of God that even nature itself glorifies God. Psalm 19:1 says “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” It is clear from the Bible that mankind is also created to show forth God’s glory.
We are image-bearers of the Almighty God. We are created to bring glory to Him, to honor Him, to praise His glorious name, to thank and praise Him for His abundant grace, the riches of His love, His faithfulness and majesty. The very purpose of man is to live to glorify God in every way. There are other ways you can glorify God apart from praising Him. You can live a life of righteousness that will make people praise God through your character. Make up your mind that whatever you do must bring glory to God.
