God Made Us Because He Is Love

Pastor Corey continues the new series, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and starts at the beginning of the story in Genesis 1.  He helps us think through the questions, "Who are we?", and "Why are we here?" Genesis 1:1 (ESV)

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:26-27 (ESV)

Then God said, “Let us make man8 in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Colossians 1:15-20 (ESV)

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
