Hi Bob, I wanted to address a couple of your thoughts.

Quote
Also, I don't believe that we are "worthy" of God's attention
.

And yet you say -

Quote
Yes, it is apparent from scripture that God desires to be surrounded by beings upon whom God can devote God's love and with whom God can communicate. God does desire to share, in genuine love, all that God's power and wisdom can produce and God did develop a plan to do exactly that, but...

I'm seeing a bit of contradictory thought in these two statements  If God did not feel us worthy of his attention why would he desire to share anything with us?

I can't believe it's only because he wants people to  worship him, considering his very purpose was to create us in his image,  and bring All into a family unit, yes he wants a family. Our worship of him is a result of his  first.loving us.

1 John 4:19

“We love him, because he first loved us.”

Maybe I'm being presumptuous, but as a parent myself,  I believe that his desire and purpose for mankind is more about love than gaining worshipers.

He must have thought we were worthy, why else would he have died so that we could live?

John 3:16  (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

if i may opine on our worthiness of the things that God has given.  our worthiness is derived.  it is derived from God, and the value He has placed on us was the death of His beloved Son through crucifixion.  when i came to understand that, that  whole "i'm not worthy" mess went out the door.  don't misunderstand me, i recognize my weakness, but if actions of The One that declared the universe show that He values me, and us, who am i to deny Him?

Nothing, consequently, is now condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. Not according to flesh are they walking, but according to spirit, for the spirit's law of life in Christ Jesus frees you from the law of sin and death.

NIV Matthew 10
29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Fatherís care. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So donít be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Psalm 139
13For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my motherís womb.
14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

Seems to me we are worthy in God's sight. Not of any works of ourselves of course. Look how wonderful He makes everyone!

John 1
14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
