Does God Need Us?

What Finger News

By Greg Laurie

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”
—Romans 10:14

Sometimes I’ve heard people say that God needs us, and the reason He created humanity was because He was lonely up there in Heaven and wanted some companionship.

Nonsense. God doesn’t need anything or anyone. But having said that, it is true that God loves us. It is true that He longs for relationship and friendship with us. But He doesn’t need us.

Here is the question: Can God reach lost people without us? Yes, He can. But does He want to reach lost people without us? No, He doesn’t.

The Bible says, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14 NKJV).

God has placed each of us where we are for a reason. We need to find that reason and then do what we can to bring honor and glory to the Lord.

Did it ever occur to you that you are where you are because God put you there? Maybe that cranky neighbor, that difficult coworker, or that person you come into contact with on a regular basis could be your mission field. Did you ever stop and think about praying for that person by name and praying for an opportunity to engage them in a conversation to lead them to Christ?

There are two things we can do with our lives. We can chase after the empty promises of this world and waste our lives. (And many do. They waste their entire lives.) Or, we can say, “I want to discover God’s plan. I want to take the position He has given to me, whatever it is, wherever it is, and leverage it and use it for His glory.”
