“We love Him because He first loved us”
1 John 4:19
We have all faced the age-old question about which came first, the chicken or the egg. The question could apply to our relationship with God: Which came first, man’s need for a relationship with God or God’s desire for a relationship with man?
The verse “We love Him because He first loved us,” is our answer. Clearly, it was God’s desire and plan to establish a relationship between human beings and Himself.
Here we see the purpose for the creation of mankind: God is building a family—His own family.
He created us so we can have a special Father-child relationship with Him. God plans to bestow His immortality on us. God wants an eternal relationship with us as His children.
God Bless You
