We have all been created to fulfil a need.
In the history of Israel, Joseph was born to save them from starvation, Moses was created to deliver them from slavery and Esther was divinely appointed to prevent their extinction. Even outcasts from the nation of Israel, like Rahab the prostitute who helped Joshua and his men, had their use.
Whether big or small, recorded or unrecorded, notable or unknown to the public, you were born to fulfil a need. That need arose even before your birth.
Jesus Christ came to the earth to fulfil the ultimate need of mankind; the need for a Saviour. Even He breaks it down further and describes the brevity of that need in Luke 4:17-18. The greatest need God created you for is in the reconciliation of man to Himself. You were created to promote the Kingdom of God and facilitate the return of man into a relationship with God.
All around you are people who need you.
