This week we are studying Creation specifically as it applies to mankind and our Purpose.
Read the creation story, Genisis Chapter One together.
God creates everything in the world out of nothing. Step by step creating order out of chaos until he finally creates mankind, the crown jewel of His work.
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings[b] in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth,[c] and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” 27 So God created human beings[d] in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. - Gen 1:26-27
We were created for this specific purpose that we would be God’s co-ruler or representative to all of creation. Our purpose then was to care for the land, and each other. In doing this we are also to represent all of God’s beauty and goodness to all of creation. Yet this perfect paradise didn’t last long. Just two chapters over we lose sight of our purpose and make a grab at being our own god. Thus the story of the Bible is one of redemption and restoring us to our original purpose.
Through Christ, we are reborn Into our purpose!
10For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. - Ephesians 2:10
