OUR RELATION WITH GOD
The most important relationship we have is with God. No other relationship can compare. Every relationship that God has created us to have with families and friends is a gift from Him. Our relationship with Him must be higher than the gift. That does not gift take away from the gift of personal relationships. Our relationship with God is personal and intimate. I pose this question: do you have a relationship with God. Is it at the highest level? Do you honor and cherish this relationship? A relationship with Him is to have fellowship, commune and talk with Him. Today’s devotion is in I John 1:3.
“We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.”
John bears witness of the marvelous relationship with Jesus Christ. An intimate relationship is mutual between believers and Jesus, as is with the Father with His Son. It is a love relationship. It is a relationship that is eternal. Eternal life means joy. The true nature of the fellowship is expressed throughout this chapter. It is divine love that has been given to those who love Him. This relationship is lasting and true. It is a relationship filled with joy and peace. The blessings that come from this relationship are deep and wide. Prayerfully, you have this love relationship with God and His people. How can you love God that you have not seen and not love those you see every day. Your relationship with Him allows you to have relationship with others.
