His Initiations, Our Responses

The key to our relationship with God is to have an intimate, personal communion with Him where He initiates and we respond. In turn, we can initiate to God based upon His initiations to us, and God responds to us.

Billions of years ago, He desired our fellowship with Him. He wanted our fellowship to be in the Spirit and in the light of His Word (1 John 1:7). He desired that sometimes we would fellowship with Christ’s sufferings for us through resurrection power and the Cross (Philippians 3:10). Our fellowship is derived from communion with the Holy Spirit. God wants fellowship. He wants a community where He initiates with His Word through His Spirit.

Through our fellowship with Him, He wants to give us an eternal purpose, an eternal destiny, and an eternal relationship-an intimate, positive, ever-growing, everglow ing, overflowing life between us and Him. It’s a fellowship of life, love, and light (1 John 1:2-7).
