An Empowering Relationship
Good Monday Morning from the Heartland
Our relationship with Jesus Christ is an empowering relationship. This relationship provides us with all that we need to walk with Him through this life, and no matter what may happen to us along the way, no matter how many trials we might endure, to go through this life victoriously.
Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.
All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
Our Lord empowers us by giving us comfort in rough times. Our Lord leads us in His ways, He is merciful and quick to forgive when we ask, and all of this is incredibly empowering. It empowers us to live as God would have us to live. It empowers us to live free from sin and shame, and it sets us free from the traditions and ways of this world. Finally, it changes our entire outlook on life and our priority system.
There is no greater blessing in all the universe than to live in relationship with Jesus Christ and living according to his leading will surely improve all of our human relationships.
Why would we ever wish to neglect this relationship?
