Are we focused on remaining in communion with God at all times?
2 Corinthians 5:20
Humanity has fallen away from God. It is for this reason that God the Father gave his only Son to the world. That we may have life more abundantly.
Life, to live, is to be back in communion with God. God became flesh in Jesus to reach out to us in the most personal way possible for us to repent. To turn from our ways and be reconciled to God.
This is the desire of Christ. All Christians should strive to have the entire humanity enter into communion with God. God the Father seeks this, Jesus as well, so must we too.
Let us find a way to turn to God today. Let us restore the broken relationship we have had with God up to this point. Can we spend five additional minutes in prayer turning to God? Can we start today giving up a bad habit that fractures our bond with God?
Whatever step we take, let’s make sure that our goal is to be rightly ordered to God. God’s will will turn to our will. Let us strive to pursue this ever more today.
