Building the Friendship!
Now that we know and understand that God is with us every moment of the day and lives within us, it is important to build a best friendship with Him! Let's take a look at some of the ways we can begin to foster that friendship.
The Word speaks to us We cannot become best friends with God unless we know Him, and we cannot know Him without knowing His Word. If we expect to know what God wants and demands from us, it is imperative that we are in His Word on a daily basis. This can be through a printed Bible in hand; audio, video, a smart phone app, or whatever means works best for you. I love the feel of my Bible in my hand but I also use a 7- minute a day video presentation which takes you through the entire New Testament chronologically. For some reason, I seem to absorb and retain more when it is presented on a video. The program I use is called HeavenWord7 by David Servant and can be found by clicking here.
"For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires."
Obeying His commands Just like an earthly father is proud when his children willingly honor him and obey him, Jesus too, is extremely pleased with us as we strive to obey Him and be more like Him. His Word gives us the commandments
