Connecting with God Daily Through the Spirit - Churches Online

"God's Spirit has given us life, and so we should follow the Spirit." Galatians 5:25


Following Jesus means following Him in all aspects of life. Following Him will mean discipleship, submitting to His teachings, and telling others what He has done for us on the cross. We are called to be His ambassadors, His representatives, reflecting Him in whatever we do.


We must strive to be more like Him, loving and forgiving and living in obedience to His commands, confronting power structures and systems designed to oppress and exclude and share the gospel with our friends, neighbors, loved ones, and even strangers because, at some point, our friends were strangers. The more we have conversations with them, the deeper our relationship is, and the more we can fill ourselves with the Spirit.


Finding Time to Connect with God

If we want to follow the Holy Spirit, we must find time to connect with God wherever we are, in whatever we do. However, as with any relationship, it needs nurturing and strengthening, and more importantly, it needs to be borne out of love for each other. It can't be one-way.


It should always be a give-and-take relationship, not just taking. The same is true with God. When we read the Word, He speaks to us. Our conversations with Him are through prayer. When we worship and obey Him, we do His will and get involved in His work.


The people in our lives serve significant purposes, big or small, good or bad. The Bible says in Mark 12:30-31, "You must love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.' The second most important commandment says: 'Love others as much as you love yourself.' No other commandment is more important than these." God never intended us to journey through life alone.


The people in our lives are part of God's purpose and calling. We must be intentional in how we interact and react to people. We must take the time to invest in relationships and cherish the connections we make at work, in school, in business, with relatives, and with loved ones, as well as confront those relationships that oppress and isolate certain people and communities.
