Firsthand Faith 03
I was asked recently by a young person not familiar with the faith, if God heals relationships. It was my delight to get to tell her the following:
- God exists in relationship (the Trinity) and we have come into existence because God is a God of relationship. He has created human beings to long for a relationship with Him and as Augustine said, “You have made us for yourself, O God, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in You.”
- Our sin has broken that relationship with God and God sent His Son to restore our relationship with God by paying our sin debt.
- God wants our relationship with Him to be the foundation of every other relationship in our lives.
He wants “our joy to be complete” as we walk in fellowship with Him. The question is: Do you know that fullness of joy that comes only from knowing fellowship with God?
So yes, God is about relationships. And if you don’t know Him, you can come to Him by faith today!
FOR MEDITATION: …and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3
FOR REFLECTION: God desires to share this fellowship with anyone who will draw near to Him by faith. Do you know Him?
