The other day I had this thought about something my pastor stated on a sermon several weeks back. He mentioned that satan does not try to deny God’s existence but tries to get us to believe that God is not necessary. I took that to heart as I know in my own life everyday I have at least 1 moment where I live as if God is not necessary. My thought the other day was, what if God is necessary? How would we live our lives if we truly believed that. I know that if I want to get to heaven, I have definitely not earned it. I screw up way to often as in multiple times per day every day. My good definitely does not outweigh my bad. All of Christianity lies on the necessity of God. If he wasn’t necessary, then why create us, why send Jesus of Nazareth to die on a cross, why provide a free and easier way for us to get to heaven.
If God is necessary, would life begin to have meaning? I know in my life that as much as I live it as if God is not necessary, I find Him very necessary. My life is not perfect and never will be this side of heaven. However, it has meaning and purpose that can only come from God. I have seen Him do so much in my life that can only be attributed to Him and not just a coincident. I am trying to live my life as if God is necessary and will continue to fail everyday. However, I have grown as a better person only because I believe God is necessary and not just some cosmic being who created us and let us to our own devices.
