God's plan for mankind

Genesis 2:7-8 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. The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.

God created and formed man out of the dust of the earth. However, He did not just let him lay there, He gave him life. God's plan, however, was not yet finished.

He created a garden for him, a paradise, and placed him in it. Adam was not supposed to spend eternity on the dust from which was created, but rather, he should have something better; therefore, God created something special. The creator made the garden of Eden to be his home.

As a result of the sin of Adam, Adam and Eve were thrust out of the paradise and had to earn their living by the sweat of their brows. Their fellowship with God was destroyed.
God has always sought fellowship with mankind, and even today, He is calling a people who will believe in Him and are obedient to the gospel of Jesus. He forms them and gives them the hope of eternal life.

Even in this case, it is God's plan not to leave us in this world from which He has taken us out of. He has something better planned for us - a place in His kingdom. It is there that we will be placed!

There is no sin, no pain, no death, and also no more slavery in order to survive, but rather, everlasting joy in the presence of Jesus Christ.

Therefore, the apostle Paul says in Philippians 3:8, that the sinful world is worth nothing to him, for he wants to gain Christ. God has prepared a better place for us in the kingdom of God.

Whoever desires to go there must be obedient to the gospel and follow Jesus Christ! We gladly welcome you to our worship services or you can read more from our WebPages http://www.v-p-m.de. Here your search for God will end! For many people this world is their own home, they living as if there was nothing else apart from that. They are only striving for money, power, and the perishable things as if that was everything in life. There are without care, just like the rich man until he ended up in hell (Luke 16:28). This the other side for those who mock God's grace and do not love the truth. rw
