Fashioned For God’s Glory Part One

Isaiah 43:7 says, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” Psalm 119:73 says, “Your hands have made me and fashioned me; give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.”

Let’s consider how Adam was made. Genesis 2:7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”

Can you picture it? I’ve seen some sand sculptures. The sand is wet and easily formed. It stays in one place. Dust? It scatters easily. Adam was perfectly formed. Did you notice his nostrils? When the Lord breathed into him the breath of life, Adam was a fully functioning man. I marvel when I think about it. His cognition was brilliant. 

You and I have the same breath in us. As Adam was given the responsibility to keep the garden, we are given the same stewardship of our bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

We are fashioned for His glory. Glorify means to bestow honor. In Jesus’ priestly prayer, John 17:4 says, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.” What has the Lord given you to do?
