God has higher goals in sending Jesus to die for us than we normally think. This incomplete perspective greatly weakens our trust of His involvement in our lives. Learning these two major purposes, on the other hand, will certainly help you rethink your Christian lives!
God was not content to merely create a army of workers but restored us as intimate friends with Him forever so that we could engage in all sorts of projects together. There is, perhaps, no better place to see this than in the various covenants, including the Old and New Covenants, that God put in place to restore that special partnership between Him and His people.
God was not content to merely create a army of workers but desired to develop deep relationships with mankind so He could fellowship and partner with them. This level of friendship is seen in Genesis 3:8, “And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.”
God walked in the garden and talked to man. Adam and Eve recognized God’s presence as if it was something normally experienced. The Lord God spoke to them as if it was something He had done before, “Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”” (Genesis 3:9). The surprising element is not God speaking but the hiding of Adam and Eve.
