Genesis 2:19 19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. (NIV)

God is complete.  He doesn’t need anything.  Yet, even in His completeness He chose to need us.  Before sin entered into the world God turned His creation over to Adam to name all God had made.  Then sin entered the world and man separated from God.  God still chose to need man so He sent His Word, His Son, Jesus into the world as a helpless baby to grow in the way man grows, learning to eat, walk, talk and so on.  Then Jesus went to the cross and shed His blood so man could be made compete in God once again.  This is because God chose to need man.  Our question is are we aware of our need for God so we can respond to God’s need for us?  God has done His part.  It’s up to us to do our part.  Let us fulfill God’s need for us through worship, devotion, obedience, love and sharing in the ministry God has for us on this earth.
