Repost from 2007:
At our small group last night, we learned about making our heart Christ’s home. The small group leader went into detail about different rooms and the things that may be in those rooms. It really illuminated many things to me and convicted me, as well. Here is the link to a pamphlet on this subject that is written by Robert Boyd Munger https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/087784075X. Check it out if it is a subject that strikes your interest.
I really am quite blessed. I don’t realize it or even appreciate it, but when I think back on my life, I can definitely see it. I have always went to church. We didn’t miss a Sunday unless we were very sick. It is only in the last few years, however, that I have seen that going to church is not the only key to being a Christian. I can go to church every single day for the rest of my life and still not have a relationship with Christ.
Main Entry: re·la·tion·ship
1 : the state of being related or interrelated
2 : the relation connecting or binding participants in a relationship: as a : KINSHIP b : a specific instance or type of kinship
3 a : a state of affairs existing between those having relations or dealings
For our purpose, definition number two seems to fit the best, especially kinship. We are in a kinship with God. Kinship is defined as “the quality or state of being kin.” Kin is defined as “relatives.” This means that we are God’s children. I am God’s daughter. You are God’s daughter. We are Sisters in Christ! God is my Father. Do you get it? Is it soaking into your mind? It is difficult, I know, because I still don’t think that I get the total meaning of this.
Lord, help me to fully get the fact that you are my Father. Let it soak into my mind, heart, and soul so that I can truly realize what I have in You. Thank You, Lord for always being there-waiting on me. Help me to be the daughter that you created me to be. I praise You! AMEN
