Hosea 06:06 (MSG)
I’m after love that lasts, not more religion. I want you to know GOD, not go to more prayer meetings.
Christianity is not a religion, It is a love relationship with God. Selah!
Christianity was prompted by God’s love for humanity, it is as a result of this love that He gave Christ Jesus to taste death on our behalf so that we who believe would never perish but enjoy unending, real and whole life (John 03:16).
That is why all the Lord is interested in is our love. Beloved, the Lord is not interested in your money, however when you genuinely love Him, you will give it without coercion. He is not interested in our service and attending church activities, however genuine love will prompt you to do this without a struggle. He desires continued intimacy with every saint.
1 Timothy 2:4 also talks of Him desiring all men to be saved and to come to a full, precise, personal knowledge of Him. It is possible to know God individually and personally. This is what true Christianity is all about. You see, going to church and church meetings does not make you a Christian, just as being in a garage does not make you a car. Selah! Authentic Christianity is based on our continued love for God and constantly increasing in the knowledge of Him. Praise the Lord!
Beloved be given to genuinely loving the Lord and to constantly increasing in the knowledge of Him and of His will pertaining to your life. Knowing Him is His desire for us. Hallelujah!
Father in Jesus’ Name, I bless You for constantly loving me and desiring that I reciprocate this
same love and that I also grow in my Knowledge of You. I am committed to building my relationship with You even as I grow in the accurate knowledge of You every moment. Amen
