TOPIC: VALUE: THE KEY TO ACCESSING GOD’S PRESENCE
SCRIPTURE: And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. – John 2:1-2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The price you are willing to pay to maintain a relationship with God determines the measure of His Presence you will carry.
God is present where He is valued, respected and celebrated. He is present where He is needed. It is important to note that Jesus was not invited to the wedding at Cana of Galilee to perform a miracle; instead, He was valued so much that the people believed that the occasion could not be held successfully without Him.
God is present where He is pursued. There are, however, many miracle seekers but very few God seekers.
Beloved, what do you value the most in your life? Many of us are very particular about what we wear, our hairstyles, cars, etc. I wish we can place such level of value on God in our lives.
The truth is that the value you place on something can be communicated by the price you are ready to offer for it. For example, when a man loves and wants to marry a woman, he is ready to pay the bride-price and fulfil the necessary conditions, in order to marry her.
Beloved, the price you are willing to pay to maintain a relationship with God determines the measure of His Presence you will carry.
Remember this: The price you are willing to pay to maintain a relationship with God determines the measure of His Presence you will carry.
