John 14:8-11
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?10Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.11Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
James 2:21-23
Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?22Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?23And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.
1 Peter 5:5-7

Yes, all ofyoube submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,7casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

To have a personal relationship with God, you must know Him, or rather, be known by Him.(cf. Galatians 4:8-9)
Galatians 4:8-9
But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods.9But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, howis it thatyou turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?We must choose,and diligently work to maintaina personal relationship with God!
