We are created to worship God

i have heard people talk about the purpose of life. At church, It has become a common topic in the sermon, even it becomes one of the best seller book.

The first question has usually been asked is 'Why are we here?' or 'why are we created?'. This question will be directing us to find out the purpose of our lives.

I learn one of the purpose of man's life is worshiping God.

Moses had been called by God to deliver the people of Israel from the slavery. God says "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, “This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: ‘Let my people go, so that they may worship me”’ (Exodus 9:1).

Pope Benedict XVI (when he was still Cardinal Ratzinger) wrote, ‘The only goal of the Exodus is shown to be worship… The land is given to the people to be a place for worship of the true God… the freedom to give right worship to God, appears, in the encounter with Pharaoh, to be the sole purpose of the Exodus, indeed, its very essence.’

Moses and people of Israel, at the end, went to the land where they could worship and serve the true God.

The land we live in is the one God dwells in.

"Where we breath, there we worship Him"

soli deo gloria
