Why do we exist?

In business when you ask this question, people respond “to make a profit.” That is not the reason an organization exists. It exists to meet a human need. When an organization fails to meet those needs, or the competition meets those needs better, that organization will no longer exist.

Profit is an essential component of a healthy organization, but it is not why an organization exists. An analogy would be life itself. We must have oxygen (profit) to survive, but it is not why we exist.

Our relationship with God and His power is like oxygen, we need it to survive but we exist to meet the need of humanity with the Gospel in power.

Revelation 4:11 
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Why is understanding so important concerning the reason for my existence?

Because I will turn everything around to serving me instead of serving others.

Don’t confuse needs and reasons with purposes of existence.

I need God but my reason of existing is to affect people.
