Do You Have A Relationship With God Or Are You Only Dating?

November 22, 2015

Greetings,

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”   2 Corinthians 13: 14

Wow!  The grace of Jesus, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Spirit; It is extremely important to have all three of these actively at work in your life.  I think that most followers of Jesus know somewhat about grace and love, but just how many of us really have true, deep, fellowship with the Holy Spirit?

“Fellowship” implies a deep connection and intimate love relationship, and I think that many Christians fall way short where it comes to having this type of vital bond with the Holy Spirit.  Most Christians cling tightly to their bibles, but tend to know very little about relating in the Spirit.  Most spend more time reading and studying the book, than they do praying and spending close and intimate time with the Holy Spirit.  This is sad because it is the Holy Spirit that really makes the bible come alive to us.  In fact unless the Spirit breathes on us and opens our hearts and minds to the ancient text….the bible can be dead and useless.  The letter of the Law kills, but the Spirit gives life!

All this brings me to this crucial question…..Do you have a relationship with God or are you only dating?  Seriously?  Do you walk continuously with God or do you just go visit Him several times a week at a “church” building?  Daily, moment by moment, surrender, fellowship and interaction with the Holy Spirit is the only true way to really know and serve Him best. “….because those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.”  Romans 8: 14

This is why it is so critical to be Spirit led and not just bible led.  Unless you allow the Spirit to guide you in the use of the scriptures…the time you spend in them will be for naught.  It is impossible to have a relationship with a book, even the best book.  However, when we read as led by the Holy Spirit the words will come alive to us and are totally excellent, praiseworthy, beneficial and profitable to us and others.

So I strongly encourage everyone to take precious time to develop their partnership, fellowship, relationship and intimacy with the Holy Spirit.  Because in Him we have the mind of Christ available to us at all times and He will lead us into ALL truth. He actually improves our time in the bible.  May we all surrender fully to Him and allow Him to fill us to the full measure of Christ overflowing.

Love and …..

Kirk Out !

    Great message. I absolutely have a love relationship with the Holy Spirit…I have such a relationship with Him, I have a special, personal name for Him. I call upon my very intimate love hourly. I couldn’t live without Him. I’m so grateful Jesus sent Him when He departed. I need HHim; He is my confidante, my friend, my love, my heart. He is everything to me!!!!!
