His apostles were then led by the Spirit to record everything God wanted us to know, about how to be saved and to live our lives for Him.So continue to seek the LORD in the midst of all of your doubts and desires, and if you truly believe in Him, you'll find His answer to all your questions, and a peace which surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).
His apostles were then led by the Spirit to record everything God wanted us to know, about how to be saved and to live our lives for Him.So continue to seek the LORD in the midst of all of your doubts and desires, and if you truly believe in Him, you'll find His answer to all your questions, and a peace which surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).The simplest of answers to our main question is: God created us just because he wanted to!
One might just as well ask, "Would you need to create (just assuming for the moment you possibly could) some tiny form of life in a microscopic world, in order to show your husband or wife or child that you love them? God had an infinite number of ways to show love within Himself; our creation was not a necessity for Him, in any way! Does Scripture ever express any supposed need for love on God's part? On the contrary, in John 17, verse 24, Jesus Himself declared: "..that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world (John )." One might suppose this passage could be interpreted similar to Ephesians 1:4-5 (which speaks of the love that God had for those whom He chose "in Him before the foundation of the world"), as some kind of knowledge the Father had about how that love would be shown to the Son after He took on flesh and dwelt among us.
But unlike us, the Son existed "before the foundation of the world" as the Word (John 1:1-3).
Genesis ), God showed His love for us by promising a means of salvation from our sin.
We know this, because God commanded His prophets to record the significant events in history leading to the realization of that salvation.
So in some way we can't even begin to imagine, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit not only communicate their thoughts with each other, but also love each other; without any need for us.
But let us move on to a possibly more satisfying answer, beginning with a phrase found in Isaiah 43:7: "Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made." God created us, just as He did the whole universe, to bring glory to Himself.
The word person being the best we can come up with in human language; not because it's the most accurate way to speak of Him.
Therefore, God had no need of another being to share His thoughts with, to communicate with, or to love!
Others might seek the praises of their peers (or the power they can have over them).
But if this is all you spend your time pursuing, the following words might be an apt description of your life: For since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. In recent generations, some have imagined a new way to avoid thinking about our Creator: Searching for other life forms in our galaxy, in the hope they can tell us what life's all about; to help us fulfill this need we have for some 'purpose', and maybe remove some or all of our diseases, disasters and even give us a much longer life to do whatever we enjoy the most.
