Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Sitting idly by! Satisfied with the status quo! Think you’ve arrived! Have the whole bible stored in your memory! Go to church every time the door is open! Feed the poor every Saturday! But you don’t have a relationship with Christ! A relationship is more than simply being present, more than being satisfied where you are, more than being able to quote scripture, more than going to church and more than serving those less fortunate than you. RELATIONSHIP……the way in which two people talk to, behave toward, and deal with each other, successful long-term relationships involve ongoing effort and compromise by both, the most meaningful element in their lives and can seem like a lot of work until you sit back and realize just how much you’ve been given. It seems easy to have a relationship with someone here, someone that we can touch, feel and enjoy life with, some that we can see but that someone also has the ability to cause the most pain for us. We put so much effort into relationships on earth and think nothing of the time it takes but do we put as much or more time on our God. Just because we can’t touch him, we can’t physically feel his touch, we can’t see him or plainly hear him speak doesn’t mean that he’s not there for us. Once we realize that he is all around us, working for our good and providing our needs, knowing that all he desires from us is to spend our time with him, we will be able to feel the gentle breeze of His Spirit, hear Him in our hearts and see His work in our lives. Don’t be satisfied with sitting idly by, never striving for more relationship with him. Don’t believe the lies that we should be satisfied with the knowledge we have today. Searching to know more of His love for me, more of His sacrifices He made for me, more of what He works in my life and more about a true relationship with Him. #rhondagouldonline
Dear Lord, I pray that today I won’t be satisfied with my relationship with You. That my urges to know You will be greater than my urges to please people of this world. I know that You gave everything for me because of Your love so I pray that I will give everything to You. Amen!
