Our walk with GOD is a journey that commences from the new birth and terminates at Perfection and fullness of Christ. We were redeemed with an intent.
Our redemption in Christ initiates a process towards our attainment of the fullness of Christ. Our initial salvation was therefore designed by GOD to set in motion an extensive process of spiritual adventure planned to culminate in our conformity into Christ’s image.
Christianity is not a religion; instead, it is GOD’s prescribed lifestyle for mankind. It is the intervention of GOD that restores hope and life to man.
Religion deals with observing routines and fulfilling rituals; while, Christianity is a journey towards GOD. It is all about relationship with the Him. Our faith in GOD was purported to be dynamic; that is, ought to serve as the means to communicating spiritual virtue that ultimately leads to the full restoration of man. Man’s purpose in life is only fulfilled as they walk in Intimacy with the LORD.
Christ Jesus is our destination. Stagnation in life is to be indifferent about knowing GOD and understanding His ways. An attitude of lethargy deprives us the revelation of Yahweh. We are created to know Him.
The amount of the revelation of GOD we receive determines the flow of divine life towards us. The life of GOD is His divine nature that translates to the formation of His attributes and character in us. The formation of the character and nature of GOD in us affirms the authenticity of our walk with Him.
GOD is the author of life; hence, definition and essence are ascribed to existence by our capture of His heart and mind prompted by the illumination of the Holy Spirit. Knowing GOD is the center of our spiritual experience.
The journey towards our destination is accomplished through knowing Him. The more we know Him, the more ground we cover on this journey.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. KJV
We are primarily created to know Him. It is only knowing Him that ignites the working of the Spirit of Christ in us. Our spiritual hunger opens us up to the dealing of GOD. Our craving for more of GOD inflames the ministry and activity of the Holy Spirit.
Our spiritual transformation is the purpose of the working of the Holy Spirit in us. It is as we embrace the activities of the Spirit that we get empowered to infiltrate the world with the wisdom and power of GOD.
Knowing GOD is a spiritual phenomenon. It is exposes our inner-man to the process of divine intercourse that inseminates us with the divine nature. The flow of the divine life results in the revelation of Christ in us.
Our Intimacy with GOD always ends with Christ revealed in us. GOD’s plan is to send us out as Saviors into the culture. When we go forth in the Image of Christ, we are equipped with the character to portray His life and vested with the authority to turn life-complications around.
