Why were we created? What could we possibly offer God Almighty? Solomon said that the heaven of heavens can not contain Him. Our answer lies in the Bible, which is God's word. Let Him explain why He created us: ...thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created (Rev 4:11).
We were created for God's pleasure! It was His whole purpose in creating mankind. The Bible draws an analogy between our relationship with our earthly parents and God, our heavenly Father. Let us therefore consider why a man and his wife desire to have children: the joy of a little child, to replicate themselves through creation, to have fellowship with that little kid, to have life. God uses the family relationship to illustrate our relationship to Him, our Father in heaven.
