Why did God Create People
Genesis tells us why. To have man reflecting His image and having dominion over the earth under His sovereignty. (Gen 1:26,28). The home becomes an outpost of Gods rule. We are to reflect His image, rule over creation, and to reproduce godly offspring.
Only man is created in Gods image. With His personality, intelligence, and ability to know and relate to God, man is able to reflect God-likeness in a limited way in righteousness and holiness of truth, how we relate to each other individually and corporately. Human life is valuable and every person must be treated with respect.
God gave the right of dominion over all living things to man. This involves a stewardship of the earth and its resources. When Satan got man to obey him, then Satan became the ruler of the world. To regain control of all things we must exercise dominion for Christ over Satan and his forces.
Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it. (Gen 1:28) Subdue the earth under God. Children are blessings from God. God made us to rule over His creation as responsible stewards of the earth, and to rule over the ruler of this fallen world by exercising the authority of Christ, our Head, through prayer.
