What is God’s heart
and man’s part in
… Creation and Life?
When we read about creation,
we mostly tend to look at what God did & prepared in creation,
… what God prepared for us, for mankind,
… as well as our place in creation!
That is not necessarily wrong, but it does miss the point some what!
Actually, creation is first and foremost about the creator God!
… and secondly about why and how He made man.
It is therefore not about what God created for man,
… all the blessings and promises He made.
It is also not about the abilities God bestowed on man,
… or the possibilities God prepared for man,
as those also are all only means to an end!
No, it is all about God, His character and His heart!
In Genesis chapter 1 we read about God’s full plan and purpose,
… and only if we understand that, will we understand Him!
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness; let them have dominion …
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them,
“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;
have dominion … … on the earth.”
God made man in His image and likeness, not for man’s self interest,
… but so that man could live and express all that HE is!
God blessed man and told man to live a fruitful life,
… again not for man’s personal benefit,
… but for the benefit of all of creation!
That is God’s heart, and when that becomes man’s heart,
… man will be living God’s plan for man!
