we’re MADE through Christ and FOR Christ

This week we’ve mostly talked about God making us. But the Bible is a bit more specific than that. It tells us that God created us through Christ, and he created us for Christ.

Colossians 1:16 says:

For through Christ God created everything in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen things, including spiritual powers, lords, rulers, and authorities. God created the whole universe through him and for him.

God MADE you.
God MADE you THROUGH Christ.
God MADE you THROUGH Christ and FOR Christ.



God made us to know Christ and to be known by him. That’s how we’re meant to live. That’s how we’ll live the way we were made to.

If you’re a Christian, can you think of ways that knowing Christ has helped you? Maybe it’s helped you making decisions, or helped you to deal with difficult situations, or something else?

If you’re not a Christian, think about what difference it would make to live the way you were made and designed? Are there things about your life that you find frustrating or unsatisfying?

Whether you’re a Christian or not, ask God to show you how you could be living better by living the way he made you.
