What purpose do I serve?

He made everyone and everything, didn't he? I thought that was kinda the point of him.

We try Lord. We try to keep our heads up in bad times. This is a bad time.
Show us the way. And if you can't show us the way...then forgive us for being lost.

Towards the beginning I think. That whole "god made man in his own image" thing.

I'm pretty sure that only applied to Adam and Eve, since those are the only two humans he ever directly made.

But he's still responsible for the creation of mankind.

So, you're not asking about yourself. You're asking why did God make mankind. Good question. You should ask him when you see him.

Where is this said in the bible?

Colossians 1:15-17 seems to say that.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all [other] things and by means of him all [other] things were made to exist,
