What is man that thou art mindful of him

Why did God even create man upon the earth and is mindful of him?Surely there must be a purpose and reason.We read the answer in the following passage.(Revelation 4:11). 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

We were created to worship and praise our Father in heaven We are called to be a light that shines in a dark world,and by doing so we glorify the one who created us and are blessed(Psalm 89:14-18).

We were created for our Lords pleasure,not for us to constantly be finding ways to please ourselves by seeking all this world offers.We are instructed to seek the kingdom of God and it is His good pleasure to give us His kingdom!(Luke 12:22-34).

This life we live is not all there is,for there is a world to come that is more glorious than we could ever imagine.A world not even the angels are in subjection to,an eternal life that was bought by the shed blood of our saviour the Lord Jesus Christ(Hebrews 2:5-11) 5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a certain place testified saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst st him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, (Psalm 8:4).
