This should make for an interesting question...we usually consider that Christ was given for man and leave it there, but why would God create man? What does God gain from man that He doesn't gain from the rest of His creation?

A wife.
why not use the angels?
Please consider:
angel is a job description, not a race or species. There was only one species created which is created in the image of GOD. All differences between folk are due to the consequences of the free will decision to sin.

To Glorify GOD.

According to John 17:1 (KJV).." These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:"

How does man glorify God?



LORI without going into a long drawn out response; To Glorify GOD would be to :
(1) praise and worship (God).
(2) describe or represent as admirable, especially unjustifiably1.

God made man in His image. God also made Jesus in His Image and called Him SON. Throughout Christís lifetime, He manifested (displayed or show (a quality or feeling) by one's acts or appearance; demonstrate.), the Fatherís image perfectly; ". He thereby glorified GOD.

For in John 17:1(KJV)...."These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:"

Through Jesus Christ and HIS Grace, those of mankind who are believers of His Gospel, glorify HIM through praise, worship, and thanksgiving as they are called "Sons of GOD"

Rom 8:14.."For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."

For the Bride of Christ, will worship Him from the mezzanine and throw their crowns before the throne as seen in:

Rev. 4:10.."The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,"

Hope this helps you, Blessings

Honestly I have no idea what you are trying to say as it applies to what I said.

Oh, I apologize. Let me try a little simpler method!....

You said:"How does man glorify God?"

Man Glorifies GOD by: simply believing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by worshiping Him, by following His laws (obedience) and walking in the footsteps of Jesus.


hope this helps!

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
