Your Relationship with Christ
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
Christ is a God of love. He gives unconditional love to his followers. He knows no bitterness and hatred. He wants his people to love one another just as they love themselves. Have you established a relationship with our Savior? Do you love Jesus? What made you love him? Do you believe that he loves you so much? Do you believe that he is delighted when you draw yourself closer to him?
We are all sinners, and we all need Christ. We need a Savior. One day, we will all stand before God and He will look in our hearts. What’s in your heart right now? Are you nurturing your faith in Christ? Or have you abandoned your faith? Love for Christ means accepting him as your Lord and Savior, allowing him to change your heart. Having a relationship with him means allowing him to be part of your everyday life.
Martin Luther King once had a dream. This dream was revealed through Christ. Building a relationship with him provides transformation. God freely offers this relationship. It’s up to you if you’ll nurture it and begin transforming yourselves. Luther’s dream begins with God. He is the source of strength for us.
A relationship with Christ gives us the strength to overcome sins. He created each one of us uniquely and equally. He expects us to treat one another with fairness. Sometimes, in our Christian walk, we are faced with critical people who claim to be true disciples of Christ. Martin used this scripture for people to be guided of Christ’s word: “Man is a sinner in need of God’s forgiving grace. This is not deadening pessimism; it is Christian realism.”
Now, have you asked yourselves, “If you are going to offer your life for something, what will that be?” Will you offer your life for material things or earthly wealth? What makes you feel significant? What transforms you? Earthly wealth can never compensate what our Savior can give your life. But Christ knows exactly your role. He knows your very purpose. Begin having a deep relationship with Christ and his prophecies will be clear to you.
