God’s Desires Are Far More Simple than Our Attempts to Appease Him

More than he wants our acts of piety, more than he wants our adherence to religion, more than he wants our observance of rules and rituals, more than he wants our words of affection, he simply wants to know us and for us to know him.  And ultimately that’s how our relationship with him will be defined.  And if that isn’t there, all prophesying, exorcisms and miracles in the world won’t matter.
