What Does a Relationship with Christ Look Like?

When a person first thinks of love and relationships they may picture in their mind a romantic relationship between a man and a woman. Or the love of a mother for a child. Or simply a friendship between a group of people. Those are all great relationships, but the best relationship is one that a person has with Jesus Christ.

Accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior guarantees a person a relationship that will never dissolve and will be filled with unconditional love. People break up, parents can become distant from children and friendships can become obsolete. But a relationship with God is eternal.

After accepting Christ as our Lord and Savior, we should begin reading and applying the teachings of The Bible to our own lives. We should always strive to be better and more genuine followers of Jesus Christ. Not just talk it, but walk it. This means giving up things that we once thought were harmless or didn’t think were contrary to God. However, as we move further along in our faith walk our eyes will start to open and the things we may have once bragged about so boldly or did with little regard for God we will now see can be detrimental to our place in God’s Kingdom for eternity.

After accepting Christ are we now saints or people without flaws? Of course not!

The Bible says, for everyone has sinned and fall short of God’s glorious standard – Romans 3:23.

We are not exempt from sin, but the difference between those that are followers of Jesus Christ and unbelievers is that we know that we can ask for forgiveness and God will forgive us.

God loves everyone and wants all of us to accept His one and only Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

So, if you are reading this and you want to make Jesus Christ a part of your life, then no matter where you are, what you’ve done or how bad of a person you think you are — Jesus Christ can be your Savior right here and now.

Ask Jesus to come into your heart and ask for forgiveness of your sins and I assure you that you will have the best relationship.
Remember, Jesus is real. Jesus lived, died and rose from the grave to save us all.
