The quality of your faith and life depends on your communion with God. You are as close to God as you choose to be. God is the source of all good values and qualities. If you are running low on trust, forgiveness, love, faith, kindness, perseverance etc, the problem is in the connection with the source.
Your life’s quality is determined by your obedience to God. All those who are in communion with the Holy Spirit have the mind of Christ. Therefore it is impossible for them to accept a life that is contrary to the will of God. Your choices, decisions and values will clearly indicate with whom you have been spending time with. The more time we spend with the Holy Spirit the more we are transformed and renewed. The old way of thinking and doing things change when we commune with God.
Jesus answered him, “If a man loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our home with him. MEV.
To love God means: to pursue God, study God, understand God, explore God, get to know God, etc. All that result into communion with God. You will then became a person that God wants you to be when you practice his word with faith. So, go on and commune with God. Tell Him everything and share with Him everything.
God bless you.
