Deep questions for sure and ones that many of us have thought about, not once or twice, but often even.
Did any of you come up with an answer? Or answers? I am sure many of you have your own ideas and answers to theses questions. I, too, have my own ideas… My answers.
First off, the most important question’s answer… yes I do believe there is a God and only one God, the creator of all. Within that there is Jesus the son and the Holy Spirit.
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16(NKJV)
Now, from there we can build on the other questions and their answers. Since God created all, that means He created us, all of us.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Finally, the last questions about who we are and why we are here on this earth. We are God’s children, every one of us. He created us and He is our Father.
The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, Romans 8:16(NASB)
As we accept Jesus into our hearts and are filled with the Spirit of the Father, we are His child. Once that happens, we step into our destiny as heirs to the inheritance of the Lord. Sons and daughters of the King is who we are, our true identity.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
2 Peter 2:9(NASB)
A son or a daughter of the King are called to love God and love others. By doing this, we are imitating Christ and showing the world who God is and what love is! This is our reason for being here and our destiny in life.
We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first. 1 John 4:19(MSG)
Ultimately, these seemingly hard questions are actually fairly simply to answer. God and His love is truly the answer to it all. Look to the Lord in all your life questions and trust Him to show you the answer that best suits you, His son or daughter, whom He truly loves!
