Scriptures: John 1:1-14
Our God likes to remain invisible. He is with you right now, but you will have a hard time perceiving Him with all five senses. But beyond those senses, there are ways to connect with Him: we need the right devices!
Wherever you are sitting you are surrounded by invisible things. There are radio waves: can you hear the music? There are satellite signs: can you see the show? There are cell phone signals: can you hear the phone conversations? With all five senses we cannot receive any of these signals, to make a connection you need a special device.
The thing about these devices is that they have to be in the right location to make the connection. Radio waves enter through an antenna. Satellites send signals to satellite dishes pointed in the right direction. Cell phones are connected to a cell tower then your call can be made. The cell phone is the perfect example because sometimes it has a crystal clear connection and other times we can barely understand what's being said, finally there are times when there is no connection at all!
So what are the devices we use to connect with our God? The Bible: literally the Word of God, is our antenna that connects us with God's voice. Prayer, singing and worship: these three get us pointed in the right direction. The Holy Spirit: the high presence in our lives connects us directly to Heaven.
Do you want to have a good connection with the invisible God? The Bible is where God reveals Himself: God and His Word are One. When we are disinterested in the Word of God, we have a bad connection. We must remain close to God through prayer and praise. When we lose humility and chose to pray and praise we begin to misunderstand all He has done for us. Worship God through a lifestyle of giving: when we give more time, attention and finance to the world than to the Kingdom it affects our connection. Make church your number one priority: you will lose your connection if you stray away too far. Finally: stay full of grace and truth. " And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. " John 1:14. Let God's light overcome all your darkness.
