God Created Us

In the book of Genesis we read about the creation of the world, the creation of every living being. This creation established a relationship the Creator and the Created. God is the eternal Creator and source of Creation. St Maximus, talking about creation, claims:

‘God has created us in order that we may become partakers of the divine nature, in order that we may enter into eternity, and that we may appear like unto Him, being deified by that grace out of which all things that exist have come, and which brings into existence everything that before had no existence.’[1]
