IN THREE PARTS
Love is the very essence of God because the bible explains that God is love. This is written in 1 John 4:8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
This endless source of love demands to receive a lot of love in return. Obviously before creating heaven and earth the triune God was by Himself. He, who creates new things out of nothing (see Romans 4:17) decided to create a family with which He will share and exchanges His huge Love. He wanted a holy family that He can count on to reign with Him and continue His plan of creating an endless universe.
God who knows the end from the beginning sets His plan in three parts:
1- TO CREATE US.
God created us in His image and likeness. He gifted us with a free will to willingly accept or refuse His company. He endowed us with the power of procreation in order to participate on building His family.
2- TO EDUCATE US.
In His divine justice God didn't want to force us to become His children. He wants us to make our own decision by choosing between good and evil. Therefore, He allowed Satan the devil to tempt us. This has started 6,000 years ago and many were seduced. Since then, we have been living on this planet earth ruled by evil spirits. Our life on earth is the
best way to gain enough experience to serve the Lord in
His future eternal plan.
In His infinite goodness God has never abandoned us. He surrounded us with guardian angels to protect us from any abuse by evil spirits. Also, He never ceased to guide and instruct us through His holy Bible. Despite all that, evil temptations endangered several human souls hence the need for God’s intervention. So, Christ who is the Word of God became man in Jesus the Lord, lived among us and died in our place to pay our debts for the sins we committed. Those who believed and loved Jesus were saved by God’s grace through their faith despite all their committed sins as explained in Ephesians 2:8 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
3- TO REIGN WITH HIM,
Those who will be blessed by God to become members of His holy family will live in unequal bliss where they will reign eternally with our Lord Jesus Christ in a new Heaven and a new earth.
