REALATIONSHIP WITH GOD

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 5:6-11

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 9 And since we have been made right in God's sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God's condemnation. 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

NLT

Little Salma was so scared of the dark that she could not sleep in her room alone. There was something strange about the way darkness scared her, she screamed and ran away whenever the lights were put out. Her mother came up with a brilliant solution; she bought Salma a long lasting LED light that could stay on for several hours and would charge during the day. ‘Make sure you never put off this light. Keep it with you at all times so you can sleep in peace’ Salma’s mother told her every night.

Sin had always been the cause of enmity between man and God. God is life, sin is death. It wouldn’t be wrong to say the opposite of God is Sin because sin is the spiritual equivalence of darkness and God is the light. Light always overcomes darkness. The best way to keep sin away so that you can enjoy a good relationship with God is by staying always in the presence of God who is the Light. God has sent you His precious Holy Spirit to live in you; this is the power you need to overcome sin at all times.

Go into today with your heart dominated by a Holy Spirit consciousness and a determination to break the power of sin in your life by constantly practicing the presence of God. Let the light always stay on and don’t forget to recharge by constantly studying the word of God in an atmosphere of prayer. Also take out some moments from time to time to pray fervently in the spirit.
