Christianity A Relationship with Jesus Christ

Did Jesus Christ call you and now that youíre a Believer are you trying to cultivate a relationship with Him, but donít feel youíre making any progress? If so, the problem is the relationship you seek is already there, and youíre trying to cultivate a relationship Heís already developed. You see, a relationship with Jesus Christ is part of the foundation of being a Believer, but it doesnít emanate from you; it emanates from His empty tomb.

The consequence of sin is death and Jesusí death on the cross is the result of the sins of mankind. However, three days after His death He arose from the dead and the outcome of His resurrection is an empty tomb. Because His tomb is empty, those He calls to believe in Him will have victory over death from sin, just as He did.

Because He is the Son of God, achieved victory over death from sin, and called you to believe in Him, He establishes a relationship with you that never changes and is eternally secure. The foundation of this relationship is that you are born again, which secures you everlasting life in heaven.

On the other hand, though, you are responsible for your daily walk with Jesus, i.e. your continued companionship and familiarity with Him, and that can change from time to time. It changes, even though youíre born again, because you still have a sin nature that prompts you to sin. However, even though sin in your life affects your daily walk with Him, it does not affect the basic relationship He has with you; that relationship remains secure because of His empty tomb.

When it comes to your relationship with Jesus, bask in it, enjoy it, secure in the knowledge you will someday experience Him as He really is. In contrast concentrate on your daily walk, which is obedience, because that you can control. If youíre not sure in what areas He wants more obedience from you, ask Him; He promises to give you wisdom, but at the same time He expects you to respond in a positive way to what He tells you.
