Why did God create us?

Why did God create us, other than to bring glory to him or whatever?

God created the universe as a temple suitable for his majesty and deity. Other false gods had humans make a temple for them to live in; God (YHWH) made his own temple (the cosmos) that was a more suitable expression of his nature (Ps. 19.1; Acts 17.24). So he created the cosmos to bring Him glory.

Then he created human beings because he wanted more children (Rom. 8.16-18, 29-30; Jn. 1.14, 12; Heb. 2.10). His love was complete and fulfilled in the Trinity, but He wanted more children to share His presence and His love with, not out of need but out of desire.
