The Benefits Of A Right Relationshhip With God by Fenton Moorhead

THE BENEFITS OF A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

Sunday morning, March 28, 1993

A FRIEND OF MINE WAS TALKING TO ME ABOUT A FINE CHRISTIAN GIRL
WHO IS IN HER LATE 20'S AND UNMARRIED.

SHE IS LOOKING FOR "THE RIGHT RELATIONSHIP" THAT WILL LEAD TO
MARRIAGE.

WHAT IS SHE LOOKING FOR? WHAT MAKES A RELATIONSHIP "RIGHT"?

WHEN SHE SEES THE "RIGHT" GUY IS SHE EXPECTING ALL THE FIREWORKS
TO GO OFF INSIDE OF HER? IS SHE EXPECTING TO BE "WOWED" BY HIS
LOOKS, SHARP CLOTHES, AND APPEAL? IS SHE HOPING FOR THAT FEELING
THAT SHE HAS NEVER FELT BEFORE? IS SHE HOPING HE WILL BE RICH SO
SHE WON'T HAVE TO WORK ANYMORE, LIVE A LIFE OF EASE AND GO ON
GREAT VACATIONS?

HARDLY? SHE TOLD MY FRIEND. MIKE, THAT SHE IS NOT LOOKING FOR
ALL THAT FLASHY STUFF. SHE IS LOOKING FOR A "RIGHT RELATIONSHIP"
THAT IS FOUND IN A GUY THAT IS DEPENDABLE AND STABLE WITH STRONG
CHARACTER. THE BELLS AND WHISTLES ARE GREAT BUT THEY MEAN LITTLE
WITHOUT THE SUBSTANCE OF WHAT MAKES A "RIGHT RELATIONSHIP".


A RELATIONSHIP IS MADE UP OF WHAT WE BRING TO IT ON THE INSIDE:


OUR TRACK RECORD OR PAST LIFE EXPERIENCES AND CHOICES,


OUR SUCCESSES AND FAILURES,

WHAT WE HAVE DONE WITH BOTH, OUR CHARACTER AND VALUES,

THAT WHICH MOTIVATES US IN RELATIONSHIPS IN THE FUTURE!


WHEN WE CONSIDER A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THIS IS
INTIMIDATING!

HOW CAN WE HAVE A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WHO IS PERSONAL AND
ALL KNOWING AND HOLY?

ONLY IF HE WANTS THE RELATIONSHIP AND DOES SOMETHING TO MAKE IT
POSSIBLE! AND HE HAS!
