It would be easy to say, I'm here because my Mom & Dad made some choices that they couldn't  take back, and I'm a product of their irresponsible choices but, some of us weren't mistakes, our parents made plans and carried out their plans and my mom conceived and here's the matured seed. 

But why are you really here?

God, said " I know the plans I have for you etc. When we look through the windows of time and investigate with this question at the base of our quest, we find we are here to bring glory to our farther, he created man in his image and after his likeness.

1. God is a spirit

2. We are like our father

3.The authority he has given us is to bring glory to him because without him we can do nothing, but we have been separated from our father through our disobedience and the deceiver now gets glorified, since we no longer worship God as our father, and we don't believe in his son and accept him as our deliver, saviour and king.

We are here to spread the good news of Gods kingdom here and expand Gods government and kingdom through out the earth, giving glory and honor to God our father through his son, who is our King Lord and savior. One scripture says; " But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people, that we should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light ".....1 peter 2:9

If you are following koh-yourstationfromheaven on YouTube@KOH624 you will find a message entitled  kingdom living, in it God gave man a duty to perform, subdue and take dominion of the land and every creeping thing upon the face of it and in the waters and air, we are to control earths resources, rule over the creatures that roam and are nourished from the earths vegetation, cultivate and replenish.

Ecclesiastes, this author writes " the end of the matter, all has been heard, fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man " Ecclesiastes 12:13

Question, why should we glorify God

One scripture say, that a man is the image and glory of God. We know God to be our deliver and he keeps our enemies from overtaking us and plundering our goods, he is our savior, and just because only he can save us from our enemy, we ought not hold his glory, for without him________ we cannot boast in ourselves because we are incapable of saving ourselves, none of our good works can save us, our salvation is Gods glory, and he will not share it with anyone. Paul put it very simply when he said; " so what ever you eat or drink, or what ever you do, do all to the glory of God "

Now's here's a question, How do we actually do this, how can we glorify God?

1. By loving him and doing what he commands, there are more than a 1000 commands in the New Testament alone.

2. We glorify God through

( 1 ) Our appreciation; we glorify him when he is exalted in mind and heart; when we find him to be greater than all the things created of imagined. He is glorified in us when we admire him for his person, work and promises.

( 2 ) Adoration; He is glorified in us when we ascribe worth and praise to him; When we worship him in spirit and in truth, according to his prescribed methods.

( 3 ) Affection; We glorify him when we Love him.

( 4 ) Subjection; We glorify him when we obey him.

( 5 ) Proclamation; God is glorified in us when we testify to his person,works and worthiness in our words, in sharing the Gospel, bearing witness to his grace on our lives in all forms, and confessing his sufficiency in our afflictions, all reflect Gods greatness. 1 Peter 2:9

We glorify God in many ways, at all times, in our vocation and recreation, in days of peace and days of persecution, in the valley of shadows of death and the pastures of comfort, we are created and called to glorify and enjoy God.

Remember we were created

( 1 ) To enjoy God  and for God to enjoy us for all eternity Psalms 149:4

( 2 ) To glorify God - to reflect the glory of God ( in alignment with TRUTH of course ) 1 Corinthians 6:20, 1 Peter 4:11, Revelations 4:11. Out of this primary purpose,all else flows. ( thus we are wise to ask ourselves daily how well we are doing at reflecting the glory of Jesus Christ to others around us, and in our thoughts, and be honest with ourselves)

( 3 )To be lovers; Lovers of God and lovers of others Matthews 22:36-39, 1 Corinthians 2:9

( 4 )To be loved Genesis 2:18, Romans 8:38-39

( 5 ) To experience everlasting joy ( this isn't going to happen to the fullest until we are in Heaven, because of our battles with our sinful nature and spiritual attacks of Satan against us ) Romans 14:17, Psalms 16:11

( 6 ) To serve God; Created for good works to destroy ( counter ) the works of the evil one especially putting to death strongholds of sin in our lives 1 John 3:8, Ephesians 2:10, Romans 12:6-8

( 7 ) To be investors; Kingdom of God investors Matthews 6:33, Romans 12:6-8

( 8 ) To suffer temporally for God Romans 8:16-18, Hebrews 2:10, 12:1-11

( 9 ) To be judges of Angles in some capacity 1 Corinthians 6:3 ( could this mean fallen Angles )?

( 10 ) To be rewarded by God 1 Corinthians 3:8-15, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Matthews 16:27, Revelations 2:23, 22:12

( 11 ) To be glorified by God Philippians 3:20-21, 1 Corinthians 15:35-58, Hebrews 2:10, Romans 2:7, 8:16-18

( 12 ) To reign with God Revelations 5:10, 20:6, Romans 8:16-18

( 13 ) To experience eternal joy and everlasting life Matthew 25:20-21, Mark 10:29-30, Psalms 126:5, John 3:16, Romans 2:7
