Because I live, you also will live. (John 14:19 NIV)
Relationship with God today in so many directions, and over such a widerange, is not a living relationship. There is anacknowledgment of God, there is a form of worship ofGod, there are rites connected with God; yes, there is arecognition in a greater or lesser measure of a kind ofdevotion to God, worship of God, acknowledgment ofGod, perhaps desire for God, but all short of a livingrelationship with God. Yet that He is the living Godmeans that thosewhoare related to Him should live. Hewould say, "Because I live ye shall live also." A livingrelationship with God is possible....
It isnot a relationship with some dead order of things, butwith a living Person. But I must ask, Have you that livingrelationship? Are you following a system, an order, orare you in living fellowship with a living God? The Lorddesires that such a relationship with Him shall be living allthe way along. It is a great thing to know that you haveaccess to the living God. You do not know whethera thing is right or wrong? Well, you have the livingGod, ask Him; He is open, He is accessible, He is alive;you can have dealings with Him. Just to enjoy a living relationship with a living God is how He wills it to be. Thedesire of His heart is that you should treat Him as beinga living God. "He that cometh to God must believe thatHe is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligentlyseek Him." We must believe, when we come, that He is; not feeling out into the universe, the vacant, emptyuniverse. No, we are coming to a living Person; webelieve that He is! There is nothing vague about that.
