Christianity nowadays is more of religion than pure relationship with our maker. And that shouldn't be the case. The real meaning of Christianity is our relationship with GOD. And what do we mean by our relationship with GOD, one me can't even see. People who have been in the boyfriend girlfriend game for sometime will understand me much better. When two people begin to practice this boyfriend girlfriend game, the first thing they do is to know themselves better. And because of that, they increase the market of telecommunication networks, that's they chat a lot, be it phone calls, text messages, facebook, whatsapp, and many other. And sometimes one-on-one chat, all in the name of knowing themselves. And in so doing, the affection for each other increases. The thought of one takes the other to bed. And again, the thought of one comes in mind, the moment the other wakes up. They then begin to share their stories, gifts and a whole lot of stuffs. And when this continue for sometime, they then begin to share their problems. And the moment one voice out his/her, the other tries as much as possible to see it solved. All in the name of love, and to see the happiness of the other. And when one tries to reach the other and it doesn't go through, he/she become much more worried and begin to text messages and sometimes even goes to the extent of enquiring the whereabout of the partner from family and friends. And when one sees the other with an opposite sex, hmmm ..you know what happens, jealousy prevails there. This goes on for a while and when that happens, shyness vanishes, and a whole lot happens. They call themselves more than ten (10) times a day. One call the other even when he/she is going to take the bath, or has been sent. This is what we call relationship. So do you think there can be a relationship when there's no communication in like three (3) days? NO! NEVER! You just ask yourself, that does our relationship with GOD the same with these boyfriend girlfriend game? That can never be a relationship. And that's what is going on now in the relationship between GOD and man now. GOD is willing to have an intimate relationship with man, but man has been ignoring GOD. We don't speak to GOD, and when HE's trying to break the silence, man again refuses to listen to HIM. One might be asking but how do GOD speak to us? GOD speaks to us through many means, be it HIS word, the HOLYSPIRIT, dreams, visions, meditations, emotions, incidents, sign post, and a whole lot. GOD can speak to man through anything. And we can also speak to HIM through prayers, and meditation. And we speaking to GOD in prayers, doesn't neccesarily means we should shout, but we can also pray in our minds. And that also helps a lot. Another means to strengthen our relationship with GOD is by regularly attending holy congregation, be it church services, bible studies, and prayer meetings.
