To understand why God created us, a natural question we can ask is—why do parents choose to have children? Is it so they come into the world and suffer? Or is it to share the love and joy they have with them? Children are the product of love. God is complete in His Trinity, lacking nothing, so our creation was not out of need or loneliness, but out of love. Out of His love, He said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:26-27).
He created us to enjoy Him and all that He has created and done for us. God created man to have a personal love relationship with Him. The reason we are here is to experience and enjoy that relationship. He saved us and gave us His Holy Spirit to bring us back to His image that was distorted after Adam's fall. However, God never enforces His love on us. He gives us the choice to answer His calling to taste, experience, and enjoy His love.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:20).
That is how personal God wants a relationship with us. He wants to come into our hearts, feed us, fill us with His Holy Spirit, fix us from any brokenness, and shower us with His unconditional love.
By understanding the reason God created us—His love—we can begin to focus on our purpose in life which is to answer His calling of love, to taste it, live it, and share it with others. He is a personal God who desires an intimate relationship with us. God is calling us to love Him and says, “let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” (Song of Solomon 2:14).
The question is—Will you answer His call of love?
