Why do I need a relationship with God?

Matthew 7:21–23 (HCSB): 21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22 On that day many will say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, drive out demons in Your name, and do many miracles in Your name?’

23 Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers!’

The reason why we need a relationship with God is because the the life we live as believers is more than just works. When we think of salvation we think of our faith in Jesus, that he paid our sin debt in full in order for us to be saved. But do we still think subconsciously by doing works we deserve to get in. In the passage Jesus address people like this. “On that day many will say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, drive out demons in Your name, and do many miracles in Your name?” Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers!’ It’s about the quality not quantity. It’s about the life you live rather than the works you do. In order for us to live the life of a believer we have to have a relationship with God to guide us through the roadblocks of this world. Anyone can do the the works of God but not everyone can live the life Christ lived. God will for us is to be like the son and that will take time but out of that relationship you build with him comes works.

John 13:7

In context he was going to wash his feet then Jesus answered him, “What I’m doing you don’t understand now, but afterward you will know.” In the moment of our suffering or in our waiting for answers; we may not know what God is doing behind the scenes but believe that He is preparing you to grow in a deeper relationship with Him. For all the ones who are waiting on a answer or just going through it I encourage you not to lose patience but rejoice in the fact that He is sovereign. Commit your way to the Lord ; trust in Him, and He will act
Psalms 37:5 HCSB

God bless
