An Instructive Relationship

Good Monday Morning from the Heartland.

Our relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ is an instructive one, for He leads us in His ways.

Show me your ways, O Lord,
    teach me your paths; 
 guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior, 
    and my hope is in you all day long.

Psalm 25:4-5

It is so very important for all of us to focus on our relationship with our Lord, and to remain focused on it.  The obvious reason is that this is an instructive relationship; how can it remain instructive if we are not paying attention to it?

Yes, I know it is so easy to get off track; every day there are distractions and things that pull us away, things that demand our immediate attention.  These are the times that we must remain focused on our relationship with Christ!

Here are a few suggestions to help:

  1. Set aside a time at the beginning of the day for prayer and Bible reading.
  2. Take a lunch break with Jesus and ask Him to be with you the rest of the day; spend a few moments in His Word.
  3. Pray all of the time; ask Him for guidance in everything you do and as you do it.

You will likely be led in His ways!

    It is a privilege to have a relationship with the One who created all things. How insignificant are we in our own selves, and yet God puts such value upon us! I hope that every believer, including myself, would spend more and more time focusing our lives on the One who went to the cross for us and allowing Him to speak into our lives. It is what we were designed for and the only way to have a fulfilling life. All else is vain and I am glad He allowed me to find that out when I did.
