“I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.” – John 10:10b GNT
In this walk with Christ, in this journey to transform to who your were destined to be, relationship with Him is crucial.
It will make all the difference. Imagine going on a road trip with no map or directions. It would not be fun or enjoyable at all.
At least if you get lost along the way or hit roadblocks, the trip is not as draining or devastating if you have someone or something that can tell you the way.
In this journey, YOU WILL HAVE tests (with or without Christ’s help). Your relationship will make the difference.
When you are challenged, whether from the outside or within yourself, in what God thinks of you – relationship with Him will overcome any doubt.
Think of your (REAL) friends/family that you can really count on. Even if they are not always there or you don’t understand what they are doing, you trust their judgement because you have relationship, a history with them. So even if you hit a snag in the relationship or you don’t agree on something they did, you won’t just throw away your relationship over what you thought they should have done. Or vice versa.
When YOU have TRUE relationship with someone, no one can tell you what that person thinks of you. They may be able to confirm it or give you their perspective but YOU know. Better yet, if they write you a letter – YOU can interpret what they meant and what their intentions were behind that letter. You won’t need to confirm with someone else on what YOUR friend was saying to you.
I hope this message blesses you and reminds you of what you already have or should strive for in Christ.
