Need to

I've been reading through some question - answer posts from recently and this statement was incredibly helpful for me:

Истинный Бог не нуждается в том, чтобы мы служили Ему, чтобы молились Ему (Он, кстати, и без наших молитв всё о нас знает), в том, чтобы пели Ему и т.д., тем более что все это - жалкие потуги плотского, замаранного грехом, существа, которые в принципе не могут сравниться с той славой, в которой обитает Вседержитель. Но все это нужно НАМ. Потому что через это мы начинаем разворачиваться к Нему, чтобы начать понимать Его, чтобы наши духовные глаза начали, наконец-то, смотреть на Него. (Original post:

You can translate it roughly with Google Translate. The idea is that God does not "need" our service, our prayers, our songs etc, but that we need those things because its through them that we begin to understand Him. These are means by which He inclines our hearts to Himself, granted that they are saturated with the truth of His word and the blessing of His Holy Spirit.
