The importance of our orgin.
If you don’t have a belief in God and his creation of man, then you view yourself as independent of God and his will and feel no responsibility to listen to him or obey him. You deny the eternal and believe that your life ends at the grave. You make decisions based on what’s good for you and what promotes your freedom and happiness. Since you view yourself as totally biological and exist without faith in deity, then in those ways you are similar to animals who operate by instinct, natural appetites, and biological functions. You believe that you will grow old and die and enter into eternal oblivion.
On the other hand, if you believe in God who created mankind, then you live your life in view of his will for you. You find your greatest joy in knowing him and serving him. You have a purpose and priorities that are outside yourself and your immediate concerns for food, water, sleep, work and sex. You sense a need to worship God and obey him. You see God’s handiwork in nature and admire his creation and praise him as creator. You recognize that the love and affection you have for family, friends, and others and your desire and willingness to serve and sacrifice for them originates, not from yourself, but from God. You will grow old and die but you believe that that this world is not all there is. At death, you enter into a greater degree of glory with God. He whom you loved, worshiped and served in this life will not abandon you in death. He will take you to be with himself forever. God will preserve your individuality and personality in resurrecting you from the dead in a new body like Christ’s body. In this new body you will worship and serve God forever in the “new heavens and the new earth” that he is preparing for his people (2 Peter 3:11-13; John 14:1-4; Revelation 21:1-7).
