Vessels Made to Contain God – Romans 9:23
Romans 9:23-24: “In order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He had before prepared unto glory, even us.”
God’s Desire for Man Today – Genesis 2:8-9
Genesis 2:8-9 says “And Jehovah God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground Jehovah God caused to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, as well as the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
After God created man He put him in a garden called Eden which means pleasure. From these verses it shows that originally God wanted man to be happy and to have joy that is found in God himself as the tree of life. Today God still has the same desire for us, that we would simply enjoy Him as our life.
God’s Eternal Purpose – Ephesians 3:10-11
“that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church … in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~Eph 3:10-11. Often as Christians we are seeking God’s purpose for our lives, but our purpose can only be understood in the context of God’s eternal purpose. God’s eternal purpose is to have the church, a group of people who express him and manifest his wisdom to the whole universe.
