You Were Created For Him

You Were Created For Him

"For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him." Colossians 1:16

"...all things were created through him and for him." ⁠That's an answer to a question humans have been looking for since the beginning of time. "Why am I here? Why am I alive?" The Bible says that we were made for God. He is the one who sustains every part of our life and we were made for him. No one says it better than Pastor John Piper, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him." That's some really really good news for us. The search is over... our joy is found in our Creator the one who created us, the one who knew us before the creation of the world. I was made for him.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A Prayer: Jesus, remind us of your love. When we are running from you, remind us of the joy that is found in you. Jesus, reveal in us our sin that put you on the cross so we can run from it and run to you with your open arms of love. Give us hearts of surrender to you knowing that we are surrendering to a life of freedom and joy in you. Jesus, pour out your river in dry land and show us the power of your blood which is capable of redeeming all brokeness. Amen.⁠
