Our relationship with God is a lifelong Spiritual transformation, where hopefully our will is fundamentally altered & there is a metamorphosis or a renewing of our mind. That’s because our relationship with the Lord is meant to be anything but stagnant…or as Ephesians 4:15 says, “We will in all things grow up into Him…” This growing up into Him means that as we behold His glory we are to then unashamedly shine that light before the world…a reflection in our own lives of the truth of His word as our relationship with Him grows. Our relationship with the Lord cannot be stagnant…it can’t be a one and done type of meeting of the minds where we say Yes to Jesus and then go on our own way. Nor can it be a fading glory that we only look back fondly on. Our relationship with God has to be active, alive, & growing continually…strengthened by faith and trust in the transformational process that’s called sanctification.
