NOW THAT YOU HAVE A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IT IS GOD'S WILL THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM BECOME MORE INTIMATE.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with me.” Revelation 3:20
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for with out Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11
OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS DEEPENED THROUGH:
1. Dedicating time to Him (personal Bible study and prayer)
(4)“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. (7) If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (8) By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples” John 15:4,7,8
2. Fellowship with other believers.
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24,25
3. By a public profession of faith (obedience).
“Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.” 1 John 2:3
“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:4
“...and He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:15
