The Purpose of Man by AW Tozer
The Bible makes it abundantly clear that God created man and that He created him for His glory. Therefore, the ultimate purpose of man, according to the Bible, is simply to glorify God. We fulfill our purpose of glorifying God also by living our lives in relationship and faithful service to Him. Since God created man in His image man’s purpose cannot be fulfilled apart from Him. King Solomon tried living for his own pleasure, yet at the end of his life he concluded that the only worthwhile life is one of honor and obedience to God. The more we get to know our Creator and the more we love Him, the better we understand who we are and what our purpose is. We were created to bring Him glory. God has unique plans and purposes for each person, but we can know that, whatever those plans look like, they will ultimately result in His glory.
