The Believer's Relationship With God

|Spiry Tee

"God has done all this. He has restored our relationship with him through Christ, and has given us this ministry of restoring relationships. In other words, God was using Christ to restore his relationship with humanity. He didn’t hold people’s faults against them, and he has given us this message of restored relationships to tell others." Corinthians 5:18‭-‬19 GW

We must establish first of all that Christianity is about relationship(s) and not religion; being found and not seeking; rest and not wandering. Next, we must be able to define the relationship(s) we have. Our lives are governed by relationships, and the quality of our lives is determined by the quality of relationships we hold. People who do not understand life as God designed it pursue things and ignore relationships yet it is relationships which give meaning to life. Such people use people and love things (money), instead of using money(things) and love people.

The most important relationship is man's relationship with God. Man was created to fellowship with God; and that is why He was made in the class of God- same image and likeness with God. We see this fellowship in Genesis when God would come to Adam in the cool of the day looking for him. But man broke that intimate relationship with God when him and his wife listened to another voice, which was the devil's. 

That high treason they committed in the garden of Eden destroyed the relationship man had with God. The loss of that relationship with God was the genesis of death (every negative thing you can imagine). Death is simply existence without God. Man became independent of God in hope that he would become like God which he already was. Adam and Eve didn't need the tree of knowledge of good and evil to become like God because they were already made in His image and likeness. Deception worked, but so did the grace of God.

God came in Christ to reconcile the world to Himself. How did He do it? "How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God." 2 Corinthians 5:21 MSG. Now the relationship has been restored, God is now our Father, He lives with us and is in us. Since death is existence without God, life means existence with God. When God invades your space, everything comes alive; your spirit comes alive, your mind is transformed and your body is vitalized. Because of our relationship with God, life has come, death is gone. Glory to God. Hallelujah!

I am in a relationship with God, death has ceased ever since He came into my life.
