“Knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” Col. 3:24 Do you remember the fellow, who returned home to take care of a dying father? After the death the son became very depressed. He could not live with the truth of why he returned. He returned, not to care for the one that loved him, but to secure the inheritance. God has given us everything from the very beginning. He has given us everything pertaining to life and godliness. Why? So I can be as Jesus and enter into the relationship of Jesus, so I can seek the Father for the sake of the Father alone. If I keep thinking that there is something to get out of God I will, by temptation, seek Him for something other than Himself. He gives me everything from the beginning. If you go to God today, you go not to get something, but simply because you want to be with Him. Everything, if you are interested in things, has been given to you. Fellowship is a relationship and renewed every day. There are no strings attached. There can’t be, as He has given me everything pertaining to life.
