Why Was I Created?

I was created

To Love God and to Love All

That God Loves

The Power of imago dei

I am capable of consciouslyreceiving love and sharing love with others.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

-Genesis 1:27

Commanded to Love. . .

Jesus replied, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

-Matthew 22:37-40

A Love for All of Creation. . .

. . .Fill the earth and subdue it. . . -Genesis 1:28

. . .the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. . . . -Leviticus 25:23-24

The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it; the world and all who live in it. -Psalm 24: 1

The Nature of Love. . .

Love is rooted in an intimaterelationship of worship and adoration of God

Because God is love (I John 4: 8), any true experience of love begins—and ends—with an encounter with God that affirms His sovereignty and our submission.


Created to be

In this spirit of divine intimacy we become partakers of the Spirit of God. The fruit of the encounter is identified in Galatians 5:22 as:

Love, Joy, Peace


Created to be

Love is outwardlyfocused: on God and on all that God loves

For God so loved the world that He gave. .

-John 3:16


Created to be

To love is to say, “I will live my life to help every person I encounter experience this love that God has so freely shared with me—as I have opportunity—to help them have an intimate encounter with God in their own life’s journey.”


Created to be

The fruit of our personal spiritual encounter with God transferred to our interpersonal relationships is marked by:

Patience, Kindness, Goodness

Romans 12

Philippians 2: 1-11

I John 3:11-24


Created to be

Love is a consciouschoice made in response to the grace of God experienced inwardly through a faith relationship with Jesus

The experience of our own life in growing into the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13) leads us to a discipline of self and relationships that will continue throughout all of life.


Created to be

The fruit of the Holy Spirit that guides and defines the nature of our own personal growth and development are identified by Paul in Galatians 5:22-23 as:

Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control

Our own spiritualformation is informed significantly by our willingness to enter into this life of divinely ordained discipline.
