Capsule for the Day
Our covenant relationship with God implies we know Him for who He is. And to know the Lord, we have to listen to Him. Listening, here, isn't just letting the Lord talk, it is falling in love with the Lord and what He is saying. And when we fall in love with the Lord, we open up to Him.
Falling in love is therefore our way of knowing the Lord. It also our motivation to commit to the Lord in the covenant bond. Because we love Him, we honour Him; we worship Him; and we obey Him. We also create and spend time with Him, which becomes our knowing encounter.
Time spent with loved ones are always bonding times. For us, we bond with God when we spend time listening to Him speak to us in the Scriptures; meditating on the Word and allowing the Word to break us, form us and use us for the Glory of God and peace to people on earth.
