His purpose for us
Colossians 1:20 -
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, whether things in earth, or things in heaven.
Bible says God did not just create any thing just like that. It says God created everything with a plan and a plan which is good. That means you and me were given great thought by God before we were created. We were not thought of somewhere on the way but right in the beginning before all things were created we were in the plan of God. The Bible says God knows us from the foundation of creation. That means when God thought of creating Adam and Eve, He also thought of you and me.
God's plan included the smallest of details like He even counted every strand of hair on our head. He knew our every thought, word and action even before I could talk or walk, or open our eyes to see, yet the Bible says He chose us to know Him and have purpose in Him. If He has chosen us from the billions He created then who are we to call ourselves failures or just normal beings.
We are special since we have a special purpose in the plan of God. Today's message tells us our actually purpose of being created is to be part of the Lord.
We read in scriptures which sometimes state the Lord appeared and the very same situation is described in another place as an Angel appeared. This is no recording problem but like we have a physical body but the real us is our spirit and soul, in the similar way God the Son is Spirit and the Angels beings form His body. Like He Himself is part of the Godhead, of which God the Holy Spirit is part of and of which God the Father is the Head of.
Scriptures say we will be like the Angels part of this glorious Body of the Son of God, this union is the heavenly marriage we all are being prepared for. Since God is Holy we too need to be made holy.
God hates sin and when we sinned His wrath was on us and to remove this wrath the Son humbled Himself, came as man and by His sacrifice made peace with God and by His Spirit prepares us to be reconciled unto Himself. We along with the Heavenly Angels will be part of this glorious Body of the Son.
Can we ever imagine what it would be to be part of this glorious Body, shouldn't we be excited and at the same time grateful for the Sacrifice who made peace and reconciled us.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, when You created all things even though they were good yet they were not perfect and You knew nothing is perfect other than You and so You planned to perfect all things in You. Your plans were hidden from man until You came in the flesh and by your Spirit revealed your plan unto us. Lord, we thank You for finding us worthy for your glorious plan and for making us worthy...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,
32 Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
