Improvement Numero Uno


"Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" (Jas.4:7-8)

When as Christians, we look back through this past year, a question that we ought to ask ourselves should be this... "Have I been as close to God as I should have been?" As the year has gone by, has our relationship with God improved. In a good marriage relationship, we draw closer to one another as time passes. Part of the reason is that we realize how important we have become to one another and as our love grows we are able to communicate it to one another. Are we communicating to God as to how important He is to us? We are able to draw closer to Him through reading and meditating upon His Word. The psalmist in Psalm one delighted in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night... Have we been as steadfast and consistent as we should have been this past year when it comes to talking to God through prayer? Do we pray enough that the Lord recognizes our voice? Effective relationships that grow stronger depend on, and actually require, a two-way street of communication. Perhaps another question we ought to ask ourselves is this: "Has my degree of prayerfulness increased or decreased this past year?" If we do not answer this in the affirmative, there needs to be improvement, because when we stop trying to get better, we cease to be good... We must make an all-out effort to make our relationship with God, numero uno...

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
