WHY WAS I CREATED?


WHY WAS I CREATED?


It is crucial to understand that the essence of our existence, our lives, and everything we learn, lies in understanding our purpose. We have been created with a divine purpose, as the masterpiece of a supreme artist, the crown of creation. And what is that purpose? It is to fulfill the will of our Creator here on Earth, which only happens when we depend on Him.


The Bible, in Ephesians 2:10 (NTV), tells us: "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Even in the Psalms, it is mentioned that before we existed, our book of life was already written.

So, you and I exist for Him; our Father created us with a specific purpose: to carry out His will and His good plan for us. We are not accidents, and it is unwise to live without considering the purpose for which we were created.


To truly understand the concept of repentance, we need to understand that we were created with a specific purpose. When we deviate from that purpose, we stray onto a wrong path, failing in our mission.



Therefore, sinning is missing the mark, it is not fulfilling God's plan and purpose. Repentance arises when we realize that we have not trusted that we have a loving Father who has appointed a great destiny for us, and that we have taken a different path on our own. That deviation from the right path is sin, and repentance involves leaving that path and returning to the right one.




Zechariah 1:4 (NTV) urges us: "Don’t be like your ancestors who would not listen or pay attention when the earlier prophets said to them, ‘This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: Turn from your evil ways, and stop all your evil practices.’" Turn from your evil ways, abandon your foolish ways of living, and return to me."


The decision to change course is entirely ours. God has opened the way, but we must decide which path to take, knowing that it will determine our destiny. What is that destiny? It is the Father's house, to be children of God once again. However, to resume that path to our destination, we need to repent, return to Him, choose Him through an act of obedience. Repentance is the key that allows us to enter once again into the Father's house, into His kingdom, and to live according to His will.
