Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

In our social interactions,
we have acquaintances, friends, close friends,
companions, followers, and perhaps, a partner.
To each of these we assign a different
level of commitment.
A companion is a friend that we like
to spend a decent amount of time with.
We become a follower of someone, or some organization,
when we support them and think about them often.
A partner requires an even greater amount of commitment.
You become a partner when your time is quite often their time
and you look to be with them over anyone else.
Where does God fit into this hierarchy?
God wants us to love Him with “all” of our heart,
“all” of our mind and “all” of our spirit and soul.
That sounds to me like

God our senior partner... we, His faithful servant,
a willing and joyful slave
to a merciful, loving, Creator and Master,
our LORD... who wants to share
His life with us.
We can only be truly free, and be everything
we can be, by submitting ourselves to Him.
