The thing we must remember is that God did not choose us to "use" us. We are not spiritual Oompa-Loompas in some cosmic chocolate factory, working night and day to churn out a smoother, better-tasting Christianity.
We were not created to fill some egotistical need God has for praise -- the angels forever encircle his throne with worship.
We are not some celestial science project; laboratory mice let loose in a maze to see how they interact.
No, the Bible makes it clear that God created us because he longs to have fellowship with us. Our Father longs to pour his very life into us, to give us an inheritance and a share in his divine nature.
What does God desire? It is actually very simple.
He wants you. All of you.
