Would you use the word “energy” to describe how you lean into your relationship with God? Are you giving it your all?
No doubt about it, there are hills that require a lot of energy, but when I get to the top, it’s all worth it. Couldn’t we say the same about our relationship with Jesus? I put energy and effort into it…but it’s so worth it! So, I looked up the word energy, and found out God helps us with that too!
“What I’m getting at, friends, is that you should simply keep on doing what you’ve done from the beginning. When I was living among you, you lived in responsive obedience. Now that I’m separated from you, keep it up. Better yet, redouble your efforts. Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive before God. That energy is God’s energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure.” (Philippians 2:12-13 MSG)
