In His great mercy He has given us new birth

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1 Peter 1:3 NIV

We are simply saved by the grace of God.  Our salvation is a gift and it is not something that can be lost or stolen from us.  As we draw near to the Lord each day focusing on His grace, love, and mercy we grow in intimacy with the Lord and we come to understand His heart.  This journey with the Lord is simply one of coming to know Him in deeper ways and growing in intimacy on a daily basis.

If we are not growing deeper with the Lord on a daily basis we are failing to understand what Christianity is truly all about.  Christianity is about letting go of our will and our selfish desires and it is all about embracing God’s will and growing in our relationship with Him.  If we are growing in intimacy on a daily basis then transformation will be a natural result.

The focus of our walk with God should never be ministry.  Ministry will be a natural result of drawing near and growing deeper with the Lord.  Everything we will do for God’s kingdom will be a result of us developing intimacy with the Lord.  Simply draw near today and come to know Jesus in a way that you have never known before.
