Building A Stronger Relationship With God
(Passage: Revelation 3)
Every child of God is expected to maintain a distinct relationship with his (or her) Maker.
No sitting on the fence. No one-leg-in and one-leg-out. We are called to devote ourselves to God and give Him our best services at all times.
If we expect God to reward our good services, then we should expect he will do the opposite if we don’t commit to his service fully. Children of God should prioritize the things of God and serve him faithfully.
God said through his word,
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth…
…Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see…
…As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:15-19).
Blessed Are Those Who Keep Good Relationship With God
God will reward your efforts if you care to be closer to him. With this truth in mind, every child of God ought to examine himself if indeed meeting God’s expectations.
Caution has to be taken, not to mistake religious exercise as true worship. At least, any Christian should understand that his (or her) church title does not equate to true worship.
God will not save us based on personal claims and religious titles. He will examine our hearts and review our thoughts and actions prior to awarding his reward (whether positively or negatively).
How we view God and how we operate in his presence matter a lot. #presence #matter #lot #operate
The Basis of Faith
There is a tendency that people can confuse what matters of faith are. There is a likelihood that someone can imagine he is fit to receive God’s good reward by simply being “good to others.” –
