God’s Ultimate Purpose for Us

God wants us all to be fruitful – Gen 1:27-28  (An account of and the purpose for which man was created)

The will of God – The purpose for which man was created

  • To be fruitful
  • Increase in number
  • Fill the earth
  • Subdue the earth
  • Subdue it

 

Ultimately God will always go ahead and achieve His purpose

This is made clear in the New Testament – Colossians 1:9-12 (Every word in this prayer is positive)

God’s plan is for us to:

  • Be filled with the Knowledge of God – through all spiritual wisdom
  • Life pleasing to the Lord in every way
  • Bear fruit in every good work
  • Be strengthened with all power
  • Have Great endurance  and   patience and joy
  • Share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light

 

2 Peter 1:3-4 – God’s divine power has given us everything, even to escape the corruption of the world. Everything we need for life and godliness

 

How does this provision come?

 

  • Through the knowledge and Jesus Christ
  • And through His great and precious promises (in the promises in God’s word)

 

The Marvelous Results

 

We participate in the divine nature (The nature of God). We begin to share in His divine nature

We escape the corruption that is in the world caused by evil desires

 

If you want God’s best. He wants it for you and He have made full provision for you. He will not make the decision for you. You have to make that decision yourself.
