God created human beings to live in relationship with God, be nourished by God’s love and crave more and more of God. This means every human being is hungry for a relationship with God. Unfortunately, however, too many people don’t experience this reality because they hear people of faith talking about God in ways that force them to search for spiritual food elsewhere, see pastors acting in ways that make God’s love appear to be junk food and see churches doing things that make them lose their appetite. But it’s not about people, pastors or churches, as important as these things are. It’s about one basic reality that is at the very heart of human life: You need God if you want to thrive instead of merely survive.
