Portrait of a Worshiper
How God Created and Designed Us to Fulfill Our Purpose
About the Book
Every person who has ever lived has wrestled with the question of the purpose of human life. Stone answers that question definitively with the Word of God that mankind’s purpose for existence is to be “to the praise of His/God’s glory” (Ephesians 1:14). Since that is God’s purpose for us, then the way God designed and created us has everything to do with us accomplishing that purpose. This book examines in detail how God made us in His likeness and image and how every part of us is necessary to accomplish God’s purpose for us. The book also looks into God’s redemption plan to redeem all parts of a human being so that we can fulfill the purpose for which we were created. Finally, this book explains how each part of our humanity functions when we obey God’s purpose for our existence and worship Him.
