ANSWER: God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
What does it mean that we are created in God's image? (If you need some help answering this question, take a look at the chapter "Humanness" in J. I. Packer's Concise Theology, which is one of the resources recommended by the creators of the New City Catechism.)
The answer to this catechism question tells us that God wants us to know, love, live with, and glorify him. If we're honest with ourselves, that probably seems like a lot for God to ask of us! Using Ephesians 1:3-10 as a guide, can you explain how God makes it possible for us to have this kind of close, loving relationship with him?
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word glorify as follows: "to reveal or make clearer the glory of (God) by one’s actions." What are some ways in which we can glorify God on Sunday mornings in our worship service? How can we glorify him when we are playing, studying, working?
If you have a chance, read Psalm 104 from The Message aloud as a prayer this week as a way to glorify God!
