.Devotions from Gary Moon’s book on Apprenticeship with Jesus for 10-20

Dallas Willard said, “In the purpose of God’s redemptive work communication advances into communion and communion into union.  When the progression is complete we can truly say, ‘It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me’. ( Gal. 3:20)”

We were created for intimacy with God, to receive His love and lavish it on others.

Jesus knew the importance of living in love. He declared that living in love with God and others is of supreme importance.
When our lives are not lubricated with love, we eventually break down and become dysfunctional.

The NRSV version of John 17:3 says,  “And this is eternal life, that they may know ( a deeply intimate, interactive, and transforming friendship built upon abiding, living in the other) you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

Salvation is living in intimate union with God.

How might our day change today if we spent the next 24 hours abiding in God and living in the present with Him ?
