Life without a relationship with God is possible. But life without God is impossible! There is a similar parallel here with your parents - but lucky for us, God is not like our parents!:)
Life itself was created by God, and is sustained by Him. We live and move in the palm of his hand.
God created us to love us, and to be fully within our soul, spirit and life. From God we have all that we have, including the breath in our lungs. God designed life so that He would be in us, and us in Him. Heaven and earth were made as one space, one place. What shattered this union of heaven and earth, and God and man, was our 'sin', our hearts determined to do life alone, and to do what we want.
The good news is that God restored the highway between heaven and earth, and the soul-way between God and man. God stepped into our world in the person of Jesus Christ, and laid himself under the burden - the punishment - of our sin. He died a gruesome death at the hands of mankind, and then rose again to forgive us, 'repair us', and offer us eternal life.
God is in the mix of our life! He hovers by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and offers to fill your soul, your spirit with the truth of Himself. He offers to pour Himself into your heart and soul, forgive you, heal you, and 'connect' you to God.
We were made by God, and for God. We were never designed to do life without the very Spirit of Jesus Christ coursing through our souls. Life in Christ is, what the bible describes, as the 'life that is truly life.' (1 Tim 6:19)
Fall to your knees today, repent of your sin, and call on the name of Jesus to save you. He will!
'Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me, has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has passed over from death to life!' (John 5:24)
