To me this verse is self explained. God is God !!! He created all things but He formed man from the dust of the earth !!! Praise God for all His wonderful works !!!

My question is,where all things made by God and for God.Is the scripture referring to God only or does it includes Jesus also .

 

blessed's comment on 2014-04-20 06:42:36:

This scripture is radical. All things were made by GOD for GOD. Everything from the physical to the spiritual. Religions, humans, nature, storms,modern inventions, all create by GOD for GOD. Genesis says he create the universe out of void. He created man from dirt. Man was created to take care of GOD 'S creations. To worship and praise GOD. NOW we have the gospel of CHRIST, WE ARE supposed to spread the good news of the gospel. JESUS says his yoke is easy and his burden is light. We are the creation of GOD created for GOD. GOD is love! We are created for love by love. Not the love of the world but the love of GOD. I say to you LOVE AND BE LOVED.
