Why Did God Create Man?

Being a Christian means that you are constantly searching for answers.

You wonder why things happened in the Bible in the way that they did or how best you can explain them to other people who are not members of our faith. 

Why Did God Create Man

You might have questions such as “Why did God create man?” Well, this article will explain exactly why God created man so you will never have to ask this question again. 

So Why Did God Create Man? 

The question of why God created man has been debated since the beginning of time. Some believe that God created man because He wanted us to worship Him.

Others say that God created man to test him and see whether he would obey His commandments. Still, others believe that God created man to show his power over nature.

God created man to show his love for mankind. He gave us life, breath, food, water, shelter, clothing, and even our bodies.

He also gave us free will, allowing us to choose between good and evil. If we disobey God, then we deserve punishment. But if we follow God’s laws, then we are rewarded with eternal happiness in heaven.

God is omnipotent (all-powerful) and omniscient (all-knowing). The Bible says that “the Lord thy God is a merciful God; he will not leave thee, nor forsake thee” Deuteronomy 31:6.

This means that God is all-powerful and all-knowing. We can be sure that God knows what we are doing at any moment.

He told Moses that he had chosen him to be the leader of Israel. God said that he chose you to lead this nation. You must never do anything to dishonor your position as leader of Israel, the Lord said.

Therefore, in the same way, that God chose Moses to lead the people of Israel God has chosen us to be his representatives on Earth.

God created us in order that we can populate the Earth and use the resources of the Earth to worship Him and represent His glory. 

Now that we’ve covered why God created man, let’s turn to another issue that you may have many questions about – How did God create man? 

How Did God Create Man? 

The Bible says that God created man in His image. In other words, humans are basically like Him. They have the same characteristics, emotions, thoughts, and feelings. They also share the same body structure, organs, and functions.

God created Adam from dust and breathed life into him. Then, He gave him a soul and ordered him to eat from the tree of knowledge. Afterward, God commanded Adam to procreate. This is where things get interesting.

God created Eve from Adam’s rib. She was made from his side. She had no head, hands, feet, or legs. She was only an extension of his body. When she became pregnant, she gave birth to Cain. The rest of the story is history.

So, how did God create man? He used two people. One person was Adam and the other one was Eve.

Adam and Eve’s descendants are all of us – we all come from this first union of God’s people in the Garden of Eden and had Eve not been tempted by the apple of knowledge then we may still be there today. 

Now that we’ve explained how God created man, let’s turn to explaining how God ensured that we would all be saved – by sending his son Jesus Christ to us to demonstrate why we should live by the word of the Lord. 

How God Redeemed Mankind

God wants everyone to know about Jesus Christ. He sent his son Jesus to die on the cross so that everyone could come to him. Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

He rose from the dead three days later. He now lives forever in heaven.

Jesus came to earth to save people who were born before he was born. He paid for their sins by dying on the cross. When they trust Jesus to forgive them, they receive forgiveness of sin and become children of God. They go to heaven when they die.

Jesus Christ was the son of Mary and Joseph. He was born on December 25th in Bethlehem, Palestine. He grew up with his parents. He learned many lessons from them. He was taught by the wise men. He went to school and studied under the teachers.

He listened to the teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees. He even ate at the house of Levi. He knew all about the law of Moses. He was baptized by John the Baptist. He preached good news to everyone.

He was crucified for our sins. He died on the cross. Three days later, he rose again. He ascended to heaven. He sits at the right hand of God. 

Jesus loves us very much. He died on the cross for us. He rose again from the dead. He is coming back soon to take us to heaven. And we will be with him someday. Amen!

This is how God redeemed us from our sins – by sending Jesus to come and die for us on the cross so that we would see the true way to the light and know how we could embrace him and his message.

Final Thoughts

It is crucially important to know why God created man because it is a core part of the Christian faith. God’s work to ensure that His will be done on Earth by us, and it is our duty to ensure that, given he gave us the gift of life, we follow His teachings as set out in the Bible. 

It is also important to know why God created man because it allows all of us to be able to, with confidence, spread his message of love.

For our God, the one true God, is a loving God and one that wants us to bring more people into his light. 

By being able to explain why God created us we can then explain the true Christian message in its fullest to all we encounter in our daily lives.

For by following the work of the Lord, we not only make ourselves loyal to his plan but ensure that others can truly embrace him.

There is no better gift a person can offer and no better gift that can be received than to know you work with our Lord. 

So if you wish to make the world a better place, be sure to go and spread his word now.
