"Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him"
We live full time in an RV, and sometimes we have trouble on the road with our internet connection. We have a "Hot Spot" for the computer, and in the city our connection is perfect. But when we’re camping deep in the woods, the connection is either weak or sporadic.
God probably views His relationship with us in the same way. When we’re going through a difficult time, we stay in fellowship with Him, praying about our situation day and night. But afterwards, when life is going along smoothly again, our connection becomes sporadic. We go for hours, sometimes days, without thinking about Him or talking with Him.
Jesus set an example by taking time to connect with His Father regularly, often early in the morning. The night before He died, Jesus spent His last hours in fellowship with His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36).
Keep the lines of communication open so your fellowship with the Lord won’t become “disconnected”, no matter how hard the enemy tries.
What I wouldn't give to have a cup of coffee with Jesus! I would pound Him with questions, pay close attention to His responses, record the session on my iPhone, and take notes. How could this man waste such a precious opportunity?
Lord, I desire a more intimate, personal relationship with You. Help me experience the joy of true Christian fellowship with You and my fellow believers.
