Proverbs 16.4 & Colossians 1.16 The Purpose of Creation
Posted: 26 May 2010 in Colossians, Proverbs

The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.

If ever we are tempted to think that the world was made for our benefit, these two verses can put us right about that, and also put right the man centredness of much modern theology and religious thinking.

The world is not here for our benefit, but to fulfill God’s purposes, whatever they may be, and we are here to do our part in fulfilling those purposes.
