THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
John and Mary started a relationship.
But I don’t think it was a primary relationship.
Mary gave John a picture of her to carry in his billfold.
On the back of the picture was a message:
"When we break up, I want this back."
13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall
flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be
fat and flourishing;
15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and
there is no unrighteousness in him.
Light from the Word.
We like to think our personal relationships are important.
However sometimes, personal relationships can be rather
intimidating -- like John and Mary above.
A daily personal relationship with our Lord Jesus is important.
Through daily prayer and Bible study, we can be
“..planted in the house of the LORD...”
A daily personal relationship with our Lord Jesus produces
First, daily prayer helps us “flourish” in His presence.
We desire being in His presence to pray for ourselves and others.
Second, daily Bible study helps us “bring forth fruit in old age.”
We desire to share the principles of truth we learn from His Word.
Third, this daily relationship, through prayer and Bible study
proves to us that God is Holy and “upright.”
In Him, there is righteousness; when, while in all others there is
He becomes our “rock,” or, our PRIMARY relationship.
Are you making Jesus your PRIMARY relationship?
