Meanwhile……… We have been talking, all through Lent, about prayer, time in Scripture and building a stronger relationship with God. We have been trying to read Scripture, and spend time with God, daily. I know this is difficult. I know some stopped as soon as Lent was over. I also know some have continued with the daily time because they have told me about the changes it is making in their relationship with God.
I encourage you to go back to the daily practice, of time with God, like you were doing in Lent. I encourage you to try the daily practice (you might like it!!) if you didn’t try it in Lent. In 1 Peter 2 we are told we should “long for the pure milk of the word so we can grow” (verse 2) – daily time with God, in God’s Word, helps us to grow, and strengthen, our relationship with God. It also helps us to be able to reach out in our respective ministries.
What if we did that? What if we strengthened our relationship with God so we did reach out to encourage and strengthen those around us? What if we built on “our” solid foundation so others could “build” a foundation?
