As we enter Day 12, today’s reading tells us that there is nothing more important that our relationship with God – nothing! Seeing that this relationship is necessary in order for us to reach our full potential and fulfill our purpose, we must work at it and nurture it.
You are as close to God as you choose to be.
God made that commitment to us by sending his son to die for all of our sins. It is now up to us to make the commitment to him. What commitment is this you may ask? The commitment of: Placing Him and our relationship with Him, before all things. In addition, carrying Him with us each and everywhere we go; and not be ashamed.
Day 12 tells us 4 truths, as it pertains to developing our relationship with God:
- We must choose to be honest with God.
- We must choose to obey God is faith.
- We must choose to value what god values.
- We must desire friendship with God more than anything else.
Ask Yourself: What practical choices will I make today in order to grow closer to God?
