The Reason We Were Created
1/15/2016

“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11 (NKJV)

Have you ever stopped to consider why you’re here on earth? A quick look at Revelation 4:11 actually gives us the 4-1-1 on the real answer according to God.  It answers the questions such as:

·      Why were we created?

·      Who created us?

The first thing we can see in this verse is, the Lord is worthy to receive Glory and Honor.

The word glory used in this verse is from the Greek word, doxa, dox´-ah; which means, Praise and Worship.  While the word honor used here is from the Greek word, time, (tee-may´), which means esteem in the highest form. So the Lord is worthy of Worship with the highest Esteem possible from His creation.

Secondly, we can clearly see from this verse it was the Lord who created us, because He has created everything (John 1:3; Rev. 4:11).  Now, this biblical fact flies in the face of the evolutionists, who distort the very truth concerning who created us, and why we exist.  Satan has successfully manipulated many humans into believing this theory, and in doing so he has taken God out of the equation.  Once God is removed in this way, man loses his true purpose for living, which is to bring glory and honor to God through our living.  

Evolution isn’t the only way we are being deceived though; the enemy is leading even those who profess to believe in God astray.  This happens when we become so distracted that we simply stop acknowledging God in our day-to-day living.  When this happens we stop doing things as an act of worship unto Him, and we simply do then out of habit, or to fulfill our own needs and desires.   This can lead us into worshipping the created things of this world instead of the One who created us.

We need to remember we are given an opportunity to worship God in every situation.  Every action we choose can be done as an act of worship unto our Lord, and it can bring glory and honor to His name.  I want to encourage you to think and pray upon these truths today.

STUDY QUESTION: According to Revelation 4:11, why were we created?

PERSONAL INVENTORY: Are you acknowledging God’s purpose for creating you every day by the way you live?

PRACTICAL APPLICATION: Seek God today and talk with Him.  He already knows everything about your life.  If you are not living in a way that brings honor and glory to His name, then I want to encourage you to repent and choose to live righteously. 

MAKE THIS YOUR PRAYER TODAY: Father, thank You for Your love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness.  I turn to You today Lord, and I ask for forgiveness of any sin in my life.  Bring them to my mind Lord so I may see them clearly.  Help me to change the way I am doing things when they are in contrast to Your ways.  In Jesus’ precious name, amen…

Be Blessed, Pastor Scott
