INTIMACY

Title: intimacy
By: Pastor Angelico Sangalang

1 John 15:21, NLT, “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”

In our Christian walk, our goal is to be Christ like. But if we ask ourselves today, does intimacy with God our major concern? Doing what is good is of the practices to help us be more like Christ but let us remember that it’s not the only thing to do.

Our main goal in this lifetime is to go back to God. Our top priority is to establish an unshakable intimacy with Him.

Ironically, sometimes, the very think that takes our hearts away from God are not the bad things but the good things He has given us.

Let us take a look at these simply but important principles that we should ponder on.

Our goal is not only to know God, but to seek him. Not only to talk about Him, but actually talk to Him. Not only to rely on Him, but to relate with Him.

Our utmost goal is intimacy. Intimacy is the reward of commitment. When you feel like you’ve lost your way, go back to the center of it all, Jesus. If it’s not God whom you prioritize then it is not right anymore.

Matthew 6:33, AMP, “Bur first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right-the-attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.”

Two important God-Statements
First, where are you now? (Genesis)

And, you have lost your first love. (Revelations 2:2-4)
