The Love and Self-Sufficiency of God

“Isn’t it amazing how the Angels fell, yet God did not give them a savior? That ought to tell us something. He didn’t have to send one to us either. If God had saved no man He would still be God. He owes nothing to Man.” – Paul Washer, The Love of God sermon

“Were all human beings suddenly to become blind, still the sun would shine by day and the stars by night, for these owe nothing to the millions who benefit from their light. So, were every man on earth to become atheist, it could not affect God in any way. He is what He is in Himself without regard to any other. To believe in Him adds nothing to His perfections; to doubt Him takes nothing away.” – A.W. Tozer, Knowledge of the Holy, Chapter 6 The Self-Sufficiency of God.

But even though God does not need us, He still provided us with a savior so that we can be made worthy of Him and be with Him into eternity. “For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
