Many of the social networking sites like Face Book have a “relationship status” option in the personal profile section. If you select “In a Relationship,” you are telling the world that you have “taken yourself off the market.” What does it look like when you are “in a relationship?” Do you make it a point to spend every waking minute with that special person or do you ignore him/her from one week to the next? Do you seek to learn as much about your special person? Do you long to get to know everything about him/her as you can, and share everything about yourself or are you afraid of getting too close? Do your thoughts gravitate towards that person or do you only think of him/her when you are in trouble?
God created us to have a personal relationship with Him. Since He already knows us intimately, it is our job to learn about Him, to know him intimately. Fortunately, He has given us His Word, the Holy Bible, which explains His attributes, His heart, His will and His plan for us in a way that we can relate to Him (with His help). God loves us deeply, but will never force Himself on us. He wants us to open up and get to know Him.
If you would like to get to know God better and deepen your relationship with Him, follow me as I follow Christ!
