God’s Purpose for His People

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.

The Purpose

Discipleship #3 Digital Library | Strengthening FaithRedemption has a larger purpose than merely getting man safely to heaven. Part of this purpose is seen in the original garden scene where God walked and talked with Adam and Eve.

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. Redemption Through the ScripturesThe 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.

Part of this book, Redemption Through the Scriptures, is on the web (see below), but the completed book with all the other teaching materials including: the full study guide and available videos, audios, and powerpoints are included in the Discipleship 3rd level library along with other third level BFF publications. These resources enable you to not only grow in Christ, be like Christ but also to have Christ's plan lived out through your life! Or check out the book!
