A theme that keeps running through my brain is that we were created for relationships. For laughter. Smiles. Tears. Hugs. We were made to be with one another. In community with each other. God is a very relational and intentional entity. He desires a relationship between us and Him, and us and others.
The thing is, is that He doesn’t want a once-a-week friendship that happens to be fancily called church. I believe He desperately wants a best friendship. All day, every day.
