We were designed by God to find ultimate fulfilment in life through a close intimate relationship with Him. The good news (actually the greatest news ever) is that through Jesus Christ, God has provided a way for us have this relationship with God, that we were designed for.
God designed and made everything in the world and He rules it.
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” (Revelation 4:11)
When God created the world, He also made people to reflect in certain ways His own character, and He put us in charge – to rule, look after, care for, and enjoy the beauty and goodness of this world. God designed us to look after this world, under His authority, honouring Him and obeying His directions.
We have all rejected God by living our own way, without Him.
“There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away… there is no one who does good, not even one.” (Romans 3:10-12)
By rejecting God we have messed up our lives, our society, and this world, with everyone selfishly doing what they want, instead of following God’s ways as He designed. The end result of all this competing selfishness is a world with a lot of misery, suffering, and injustice.
