We were created by God and for God (Gen. 1:27; Col. 1:16). And he is worthy of our worship (1 Chron. 16:25-30). Knowing, enjoying and exalting him with our lives is our ultimate purpose as humans and our greatest good (1 Cor. 10:31).
Though we were lost in our sin and cut off from him, God loved us and purposed to redeem a people for his glory (Eph. 2:1-7). By grace, he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him and to participate in the mission of spreading his gospel (Eph. 2:8-10, Matt. 28:18-20).
The God who gave up his perfect Son to pay for our sins, who raised Jesus from the dead, who will judge the world in righteousness and who will make all things new is worthy of our love, reverence, awe and total devotion (Acts 17:30-31). His glory and praise is the driving purpose and goal of everything we do as a local church (Rom. 11:36, Rev 4:11).
