GETTING IN TOUCH WITH GOD

Today there are almost as many ways to get in touch with God as there are fish in the lake or so people think. Human nature leads us to believe drugs, yoga, and numerous other New Age teachings will help us find that right relationship that will bring us a little of ‘heavenly bliss’. These folks stake their eternity on those man made notions while I choose the inspired Word of God. Here I turn to Christ’s own words in John 14:6 saying: “I am the way…No one comes to the Father except through Me”. A statement each of us can take or leave but for me the evidence points to Christ and His Triune nature alone. This access is there for each of us through the blood Christ shed on the cross (Ephesians 2:13).

The Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:18) lifts us up by our faith in God (Romans 5:2) and God receives and forgives by His manifold grace. When we have need or simply take some time we can converse with Him through prayer (Matthew 6:6). Those conversations are always special. It should also be noted that we are to come boldly before Him (Hebrews 4:16) not with pride but yet not afraid of our Father.

For those who feel their life of sin is too grievous to forgive they need to reflect on the prophet Isaiah’s words (56:7) knowing God is abundant in His forgiveness.

What I know for certain is that as King David proclaims in Psalm 27:4 we who are God’s people eagerly seek to dwell in God’s House. What a blessing that will be as we continue in this life GETTING IN TOUCH WITH GOD.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: With access to God we receive acceptance and realize His great abundance through repentance and forgiveness.

DEVOTIONAL VERSE FOR TODAY: John 14:6 “one way”.

PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord thank you for Your many blessings.

QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:

  1. How are you finding access to God?
  2. Why do so many choose a way they think God can be found other than through Christ?
  3. What other ways do people use to seek God?
  4. What is the Holy Spirit’s role in this?
