Over the past 13 years I have developed a great many wonderful relationships through work. Though these relationships began as professional acquaintances, they have become strong friendships. Together we have shared stories about our families, faith and frustrations. We have consoled one other when sorrows hit our lives and celebrated when joys arrived. These people with whom I have the privilege of working come from all corners of the country and all walks of life. And I have learned something valuable from each one of them, because God has ordained our paths to cross.
Building relationship between God and mankind is the work of God in Christ. Christ came, walked among us, taught us and sacrificed for us, so we could have an intimate relationship with God. Through His work on the cross, Christ has given us the privilege of being children of God.
1 John 3:1 says, “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” Through our faith in the work of Jesus Christ, we are given the opportunity to share intimacy with God. Through Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be as close to God as God the Father is to His own Son. Christ’s work for the Father on our behalf has created a very strong family bond between us and God.
