A living relationship with God is like...
... a journey of twists and turns.
.... an adventure with highs and lows.
... a race requiring endurance and perseverance.
Try it yourself and you will likely find - it's almost impossible to describe a living relationship with God without using words that indicate or describe activity, change, or growth.
And there's good reason for that.
God is a God of Movement.
From the Spirit moving across the waters in Genesis, to the Christ calling the people to Eden Restored in Revelation, God is a God of movement. God moves towards us, seeking and finding us.Then God moves in us and through us and among us. God moves us away from conceit and selfishness. God moves us out of ourselves and towards others.
Never does God allow us to remain stagnant or static or stale. Never does God cease shaping and forming us. Never does God stop working (no matter how incrementally small the work may appear to be) to make us through the Spirit into the likeness of Christ.
Never are we left where we were found.
God is a God of movement.
