“WORD FOR THE WEEK”
In my reading I came across a statement I wanted to share that truly bought a few questions to mind. ‘Don’t be a vaccinated Christian who has become immune to the presence of Christ even when He is standing right in front of you.’
I thought how when we take our children in for vaccinations, they are basically given a shot that gives them a little of the virus so that their immune system is able to build a defense against it. In other words, the vaccination shielded them and kept them from getting that which they were vaccinated against.
The questions: Do we get so caught up in self and what we are doing that we forget about our relationship with God? De we take for granted the fact that He is always there? Do we get so content in where we are that we have no desire, no yearning for growth? Do we know Him just enough to say we know Him?
Building upon our relationship with God is a never ending journey. Just like with vaccinations and defense against diseases; we must continue to strengthen and protect our immune system to keep from falling prey to the enemy and those things that will come against us. I fear the thought of thinking I have reached a point in life where I know all I need to know about my Heavenly Father.
We must stay in constant communication with Him through prayer and His Word to build up our defense and to grow in our relationship with Him.
