If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
John 15:7-8 NRSV
A relationship can only blossom when a person properly communicates with the other. Hence, a relationship with God requires us to hear and respond to His voice. We focused on remaining connected to God and staying rooted in His word. But for a closer relationship with Him, a required step is to respond to His teachings through the way we live our lives. Because only our actions prove how much we prioritize a relationship with God.
Our response can start as small as giving grace before every meal and allowing room for change in our habits and characteristics. We are called to bear good fruits and to live a life for God's glory. Hence, we should align our lives to His purpose. When we begin to live a life of faith and obedience, God transforms us to become a living testimony. We will bear fruits that will attract many, and all we need to do is point at Jesus as the reason for our salvation. We are blessed to know the truth of the scriptures and to have Jesus as our Lord. Hence, we should examine the lives we have led thus far and ask ourselves whether the changes we have allowed to happen are for God's purpose to prevail. And if they are not, let's find the reason why we remain stagnant in our journey with God. Because without God we can do nothing, and with Him we will experience His goodness all the days of our lives.
“So that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God.”
Colossians 1:10 NRSV
Prayer To Remain Responsive
God, we thank you for calling us to journey through our lives with you. Lord, we long for a relationship with you. We ask that you prepare us and make us worthy to walk in your purpose. Help us to remain responsive to you with our actions and help us to live in faith and obedience so that we may bear fruit for your glory and witness your goodness in our lives.
It is so by Faith and by Faith so it is. AMEN❣
