I’ve come to learn over the past few months through personal experiences and those of others that what you do for God does not matter half as much as what you are with Him. It isn’t enough just to be busy, actively working tirelessly in God’s vineyard. God desires a consistent, uninterrupted communion/fellowship/relationship with us in His garden. No doubt, God made man and put him in the garden to dress and keep it, but it was also His will that at the cool of the day, man walks with God in this garden and has fellowship with Him.
This is a call to seek God, and to know Him for ourselves, because we have that promise that we’ll find that which we seek (Matthew 7:7). God says to draw near to Him and He’ll draw near to us. We have to choose to draw near and God, who sees our hearts will reveal Himself to our hearts; and only then will our work for Him be truly fruitful and pleasing to Him. “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation, intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.” (John 15:5 MSG)
So, the question is: “How’s your relationship with God?” Don’t be in much haste to answer it. Think it true and whatever your answer be, remember these words: Every relationship thrives with communication and commitment.
I trust that God will help us to stay connected.
With Love, Chrystiana.
