How do we describe our relationship with God? Do we completely rely on the messages and prayers of our pastors? Or do we take the time to personally study God’s words, meditate on them, and spend quality time talking to God in prayers?
God would like to have a direct relationship with us also. He desires to have one on one fellowship with His children always.
The pastors will do their job preaching, the real genuine pastor will put their best into teaching us the ways of the Lord, however, it is our responsibility to apply our life to God’s words.
So, our fellowship with God must be deeply rooted in our personal devotion to the words of God and in prayers. We assess daily how our life is matching up with God’s words. We ask for help through prayers if we notice any deficiency. Seek for counsels and prayers as well with our pastors as necessary.
These will help us grow in the Lord, become a matured Christian, and one of the disciples of Christ.
May God keep us growing in Him in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
