Spiritual Oompa-Loompas

This was in my reading this morning...

The thing we must remember is that God did not choose us to "use" us. We are not spiritual Oompa-Loompas in some cosmic chocolate factory, working night and day to churn out a smoother, better-tasting Christianity.

We were not created to fill some egotistical need God has for praise -- the angels forever encircle his throne with worship.

We are not some celestial science project; laboratory mice let loose in a maze to see how they interact.

No, the Bible makes it clear that God created us because he longs to have fellowship with us. Our Father longs to pour his very life into us, to give us an inheritance and a share in his divine nature.

What does God desire? It is actually very simple.

He wants you. All of you.

  1. Great post! I was just reading in Genesis last night. We are created after "His" kind...All the creatures were bringing forth of their kind and multiplying...We are His children...His offspring...His heart.

  2. We were studying Genesis with our kids last night too. God brought this passage to my mind as we wrestled with the Fall and it's implications. All the best to you Cynthia - thanks for stopping by!
