Foray into Social Medial
Well, dear friends, thank you for joining me here and this is my foray, my initial attempt in connecting with you on social media. My goal, my purpose simply is this: that I may serve you in the ministry of the Word. I am rejoicing in technology today because I could be able to share the blessings and the teachings of God in my life with you in such a simple and easily available platform. So once again, thank you for joining me and I look forward to many, many days ahead whereby the blessings, the messages that God has given to my heart, my life, can also be shared with you and communicated into your life.
Well, for a start, I’d like to share with you what God spoke to me some one or two nights ago in my devotional reading. It’s found in Hosea chapter 11 and it says in verse 1: “When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.”Just this one verse.
It struck me that God pictures his relationship with Israel like that of a father and son. And if you have read Hosea before, you would realise that there is another picture besides father and son and that would be between husband and wife. So God pictures his relationship with Israel both as father with son and also husband with wife. And that is the thought God gave me — that in my human relationships I can understand more about God’s relationship with me. You see, in my life, God has blessed me with wonderful relationships. He has also given me some testing, trying relationships but all that has a greater purpose, a greater objective than just being a human horizontal relationship. These relationships teach me a lot about my relationship with God.
Life is about knowing God and His Son Jesus Christ. And so as I journey through life with my wife, with my child, with my friends, with my brethren, I can learn so much more through these relationships about God and that is tremendous joy isn’t it! So my dear friends, if you today are going through difficult times with people, maybe God wants you to learn, to see and to have a peep into the relationship you can have with God. Maybe it is a glimpse into who God is to you in a greater way. Have we been pained and hurt before by others? Well, maybe that is a glimpse into how we have hurt and pained our God before. Do you love your child and love your wife deeply? Maybe that is a reflection of in a very little way of how much God loves you. So I want to encourage you in your journey through life. Reflect, rejoice, learn and be blessed in relationships with man that can teach you so much about the highest, greatest relationship – our relationship with God. So God bless you and may we enter into that life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. God bless!
