As humans, we’re made to rely on our Maker who is the source of our intrinsic being. Although, sin and Satan that happen to have the capability of imprinting all types of erroneous belief into your mind may well persuade us to believe that we can live without God, but it’s just a complete lie from the pit of hell. Unfortunately, as it has always been during the course of humankind history, many people are living their lives that way. The truth is that you may allow yourself to be deceived to the degree that you don’t really feel the need of having Christ in your life; nevertheless, you’ll certainly get into a point where you’ll come to the realization that His absence in your life is the greatest and worst mistake that you could have ever made.
Just as an electrical component needs to be connected to a power supply in order for it to be able to achieve its initial purpose, so are we. We’re made in a very unique fashion that grants us the privilege to relate to our Maker in an intimate level, unlike the other creations. God is the source of our life; thereby, in order for that life to be sustained and maintained a genuine relationship with Him is required. People’s conception of life on a humanistic basis is very superficial. However, from a purely biblical perspective life means more than what we perceive it to be.
As humans, we have two dimensions: a physical dimension, and a spiritual dimension. Just as the physical aspect of us needs to be taken care of continually, so is the spiritual aspect. Our physical body needs a constant dependence on food, water, and air. The same also holds true for our soul, which needs a constant dependence on God.
When we’re sick, or it could be just anything that prevents us from operating properly our natural tendency is to do something as soon as possible in order to deal with that problem before it worsens. But, the spiritual aspect is something that most people have chosen to ignore completely because of being deceived by the enemy or too preoccupied by the needs of the physical aspect of their being, such as the issues of life.
But, as important the physical aspect is, the spiritual one is infinitely more important. The foremost reason is that the physical aspect is only temporary, whereas the spiritual one is eternal. That’s why it would be foolish to ignore it by allowing temporary things to cause us to lose our sense of priority. Christ has presented Himself as life as well as the One who can grant us access to the spring of living water (John 14:6, John 4:13-14). Therefore, let’s us come and connect ourselves to God through Christ. We can establish that life-changing dependence through the means of having faith in God on the ground of the finished work of His son Jesus Christ.
