The limit you placed on your knowledge and understanding of God with all that is needed to have and maintained a smooth personal relationship with God placed a limit on your life at any moment in time.
While our understanding of God and all that pertains to HIM confirms our place and position in divinity,our practical knowledge of what it takes to be in the right and appropriate level in the spiritual defines our comfort and convenience in maintaining a relationship with God without any clog and without any thought of whether what we are targetting in the spiritual in terms of knowing HIM better is right or wrong.
It should be noted as a form of observation that many christians claiming to be in the right relationship with God have a baseless understanding that has no bearing with what is chronicled on the pages of the scripture.Many christians now believed to a large extent that there service with God in the household of God is what is necessary for them to attain a spiritual realm that the world will reference or recognized.
So, they go all their ways in running after physical service in the household of God while anything that pertains to what is necessary to make our world better in the physical is wave with a bare hand.
They become less concerned and less committed in ensuring that any service to God must not stand in the gap or block service to humanity.We are human first before we discover our path of reliogisity and spirituality.
No one should run after the things of God without any reason to run after things that will make the essence of humanity to be established on the surface of heart.
Many Christians of today only believed that God recognizes and rewards approaches that is targetted towards building religious empires and edifices but forget that the only thing that will make the world we live in to become better is when we all go to the extreme in making sure that legacies, ideas and philosophies that will build an eggalitarian society that believes in the beauty of humanity must be enhanced and reflected in terms of innovations, discoveries and development.
A situation whereby your desire and longing for spiritual development is raised far higher than your desire and demand to become better in the realm of the physical will only encourage the emergence of an imbalance in the totality of your existence.
There is a need for christians of today to understand that until their relationship with God is based on ‘father-to -son’ relationship,their struggle to attain a stress- free spiritual state of mind will remain a mirage.Christians of this age should stop relating with God as slaves because we are all called to sonship.Our call to salvation is not for bondage and total enslavement.
Romans 8 verse 15(KJV):
“For ye have not received the Spirit of bondage again to fear;but ye
have recieved the Spirit of adoption,whereby we cry,Abba,Father.”
Salvation has empowered everyone that is ready to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour to be saved and received the Spirit of adoption that destroy in totality the spirit of bondage the devil and sin forced on the entire human race when Adam and Eve disobeyed the commandment of God in the garden of Eden.
In line with this,it is a wrong understanding that emenated from wrong knowledge of the word of God that many christians in the world today are displaying and they always believe that they are doing the right thing.
I have seen many Christians in reality and in practicality that once they missed a particular church service or any spiritual obligations and demands, they believed that they have backslided and sinned against God forgetting that whatever they do in the physical at any point in time in a direct link to the fulfilment of the will of God on earth as it is in heaven once it is a good deed that will add to humanity and entrenced human development on earth.
With this, many Chritians could be described to a large extent as being religious but their spirituality is nothing but a display of lack of essential knowledge neccessary to pass the message of the cross to the entrire human race.
Our God is good and He desire that we are able to understand Him better so that our relationship with Him will be free of stress at any point in time.
In many cases on earthly pedestal, as our relatonship with our earthly parents are always expected to be free and cordial, so also our relationship with our heavenly father is expected to be free.
Genuine followership with God is not about any form of struggle but it finds expression in smoth cordial relationship that resembles a kind of ‘father-to-son’relationship whereby your accessibility with God or whatever God’s plan for you might be will be achieved without a medium.
It should be expressed only by the fervency of your communication with God which is described as prayer.This is the only communication link that God desire every genuine child of God must maintained and it must be carried out with all fervency and seriuosness better garnished with fasting,meditation and constant feeding on the word of God.
Feeding on the word of God is essentially necessary for maintaining a spiritual developmental realm that will enhance smooth flow of instructions and messages from the throne of Grace which is the realm that God desired that every child of God should get to in the course of their spiritual journey on earth.
The purpose of salvation is expressly defined when we understand that Jesus Christ died on the mount of Calvary for every Child of God to maintain a ‘father-to-son’relationship in the course of their sojourn on earth.
This becomes a reality only if every child of God is ready in all their passion to build better spiritual relationship that focusses on God as a father but not as a master.
This becomes fulfilled when every child of God focusses on themselves a sons and daughters of God but not as slaves as other religion actually believed.
How do you relate with God?
Is it in knowledge, wisdom and understanding?—Proverbs 4 verse 6-7
Or is it in doctrine and all round philosophies of men?—Colosians 2 verse 8
