In any relationship, communication is vitally important. Ongoing conversation and interaction is critical in connecting two people more deeply. So it is with God… he wants to engage with us in ongoing conversation that deepens our relationship with him. God speaks to us through His Word, and we pour out our hearts to him in prayer. And that kind of connection and conversation is only possible because of Jesus, whose death paid the price for our sin and open the door for us to be connected to our heavenly Father.
