SIMPLE RELATIONSHIP

SIMPLE RELATIONSHIP

God is simple, and He seeks to have a relationship with you. God wants to be the closest person to you. The One with whom you want to share your deepest desires and secrets. Our perception of God has been the major reason behind the several religions present in the world today. Religion is about man seeking a God who doesn’t move an inch from a throne He’s so obsessed with. This Christian Faith, is however about a God who could care less about the glitz and glamour in heaven, where angels never cease to cheer and honour Him, but put upon Himself the form of a servant and become obedient even to death, just because He wants to reach you and fellowship with you.

Phil 2:6-8
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Even at that, He didn’t come rubbing it in your face, how much He has done for you insisting you must serve Him in payment for your eternal indebtedness. He still seeks your consent for a relationship, how gentle of Him!

Rev 3:20
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

For what is a Love relationship without mutual consent? Not like some “brothers” who coerce God’s heritage into a relationship by subtly playing the “I heard God” joker… smh. Like they alone have the monopoly of a relationship with God. Let’s not even go there today.

Many folks haven’t fallen in love with God enough to serve, obey and believe Him. Love is the foundation for Trust. You love Him right back when you know how far (heaven to earth), how deep (earth to hell), and how high (earth back to the right hand), Jesus went for you. He went that far just to prove to you that you mean more than the world to Him. Your worth is far more than the price tag on several eons spawn together.

You’re worth every ounce of His blood and that’s why the amount of hours you pray really doesn’t make any impression on God, as long as you see it as a legal requirement you must fulfil everyday to get a pass mark on the report card of daily piety. How much impression would you make on an audience by saying ” I spend 5 hours with my wife daily, 5 intense hours of fellowship, and nothing else till the next 24 hours”? You simply wouldn’t impress them much, instead you’d get some serious criticism for such a remark.

God doesn’t want you forced to come around, only when there’s a big problem to solve, a sickness to recover from, an exam to pass or any of such things. He wants to remain in your consciousness for the whole day, just because you enjoy hanging out with Him. Joshua 1:8, Isaiah 26:3. Just like David sought and pursued the presence of God in Psalms 27. He just loved God, because he was ever mindful of what God had done for him.

Someone says it’s not possible other be ever mindful of God? Then I’m sure you’ve never really been in love, or at least had a crush! You can consistently think on someone you love for the whole day, no matter how busy you are. Yeah, it’s a mystery. When you discover how much God loves you, you’d squeeze out every time you can, to actively spend time with Him by Praying (communicating with Him) and Studying the Word (knowing and understanding Him).

God doesn’t want you spending time with Him out of compulsion, He wants to enjoy communing with you just like a normal person wants to spend time with the one they love. God enjoys simplicity. You don’t need to complicate your prayer life with original Greek and Hebrew. He just wants to know how much He means to you (worship), how much you know Him (meditation and study), how much He can be of help to you (prayer requests), how much you care about your siblings in Christ (intercession) and how committed you are to the relationship (ministry and service). Isn’t that all we want in a relationship?

This is very refreshing and a good reminder of how easy it is to love God back, afterall He first loved us.

This article touched my heart and set me upon a new part to love God and always think of me. As this is the true meaning of our relationship with Christ.

This is great!
God would rather have us enjoy communion with Him for 5 minutes than for 5 hours out of compulsion.

Communicating, talking, humming utterances to God without being careful but being carefree, not minding my environment nor people around me.
I can discuss with Him anything without the fear of my secret slipping into the open.
He directs me in decision to make and steps to take. Although, He has given me all I will ever need, He still wait on me and accompanies me tru each step I take in living life. Oh what a Favouring Faithful Friend โ•โ•โ•
