It’s all about the relationship. I tend to think sometimes that it’s about me and I can do it all on my own. But this is never true. We need each other. This is always the case in both our physical and spiritual life.
I’m reminded of two verses that simply show that we need God. The first one is the following:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah was writing to people that believed God’s thoughts toward them were evil. They had been taken captive in Babylon, removed by force, taken or separated from family members, and it looked like God had abandoned them. However, they were in that situation because they abandoned God and looked to lies. God lets them know that because of this, you have to live seventy years in the land of Babylon, but I will be with you! He has a plan for them, even though they deserted Him. See, God wants that relationship with us.
The second verse:
For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in Him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
Jesus is calling us to Him. He says, “Everyone who beholds (or sees) the Son and believes…”
Beholds: to view attentively, to enjoy the presence of one. Jesus wants us to enjoy His presence, to long after, to seek Him, to view and see Him.
God is never to busy for us. The real issue is that far too often we are too busy for Him. God wants us to have a relationship with Him. He has a plan for us as He mentioned so long ago in Jeremiah. However, you cannot seek God’s will if you are not willing to seek His company.
The following is a video that I believe truly expresses how we not only need each other in this life, but God more.
