Many times I think to myself that why were I born into this world? Why did God create us - human? And I was thinking that is it because He is lonely? People always say that when we feel lonely then we will want to have somebody in our life. Either to cheer us up or to hold our hand and live together forever. Nobody likes to be alone. But for God, does He ever feels lonely?

So I started to google about God online for the answer. I started with the Bible.

When I read the Bible again today online, the book of Genesis, it is stated that " 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. ... 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a 6th day. ". The word "us" in the sentence that God said "Let us make man in our image.." is actually means the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is consisted more than one Being. So here we can see that God is actually not alone. Then why did God create man? For His pleasure? Then I read something from a website that made me awed and awaken when I googled about why did God create man. And here they are :

"There is something else that God gave to man, whom He created in His own image. He placed in the soul of man a will. God permits every person to choose his own path. God Himself has authority to choose whether He will do something or not. Thus, God created man with the right and responsibility to make important choices for himself. God could have created man so that he would (automatically) do His will, and not have any choice in the matter. However, God gave to man a free will and the responsibility to choose for himself whether to obey God. God did not want to create a mere machine (robot). God did not create man in the image of the sun that rises every day, but has no choice in the matter. The sun fulfils the will of God every day "automatically." That is not how it is with man. Man is a special creation. God created us for Himself. God wants us to choose to love Him and worship Him. God has committed a great responsibility to man! Man must choose for himself whether to follow God or Satan, whether he will cherish the Word of God or despise it. God will not force anyone to believe His Word. He will never force us to love Him and obey Him. Love is not love if it is coerced. God allows each of us to choose for ourselves which path we will follow. But, in the end, God will judge everyone who rejects His kingdom, because God created man for Himself. That is what the Scriptures say. ("Behold, all souls are Mine . . . The soul who sins shall die." (Ezekiel 18:4))

We are here on earth for God. We are not here for ourselves or for money, or for anything or anyone else. God created us for Himself; for His pleasure and glory. God created us with the capacity to know Him, love Him and obey Him forever! Yes…forever! The Eternal God has given each of us an eternal soul. It is God's will that we have a deep and wonderful relationship with Him today, tomorrow and throughout eternity. It is for this reason that God created man in His own image."

Now I see that my life that I thought it is mine is actually belongs to God. He just gives it to me as a gift. In the end of my life whether or not I choose to be united with Him is up to me to decide because of the freewill He has given to me and still no matter which path I choose, I know that deep down in my mind, heart and soul that I am none other than God's special creation.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength!" (Mark 12:30)
