Who are what is man and what is man’s purpose?
Well, man is the son and daughter of God. God created man to express Himself, to glorify Himself. To do so, God created man in His image and likeness (Gen. 26:1). Therefore, man has the mind of God (Phil. 2:5), the motive of God, the will of God leading, guiding and directing him. Man can’t have an action or activity separate from God. Man is lead and governed by good alone, since God is good. Man is impelled by Spirit which is above and beyond the earth and, therefore, limitation.
Who or when is this man? This man is now, right now, the only real and true man. God created only one man, not two (one to be immortal and one to be destroyed). No, the immortal, eternal and spiritual man is the only man that there is right now. And we can live this in our lives and we can see this and express this in others.
