23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
-Everything you need to know about the framework of our relationship with God can be summed up in this verse. Why did God give man free will instead of just creating a race of robots? Because He seeketh such to worship Him. Why does God lead us by faith instead of just appearing to us and leading us by sight? Because He seeketh such to worship Him. We might think that if God did things differently, it would be easier on us, but if He seeketh such to worship Him, don’t you want to be one of the “such”?
