Being Present with God
Becoming a Christian means having a restored relationship with the Creator (1 Peter 3:18). It means having an ongoing, continuous, forever relationship with God. God desires us to be present with Him, and He knows it is why we were made. To ensure a relationship happens in increasing measure, spiritual disciplines are necessary for every Christian. Being disciplined is never easy or comfortable. However, it is always rewarding. Applying spiritual disciplines to your life guarantees a reward for greater intimacy with God, affecting the purpose of salvation.
