Communication = Relationship

“Without communication there is no relationship.”

This quote is one of the things that a Pastor, whose name I have forgotten, preached many years ago that made a great difference in my life. 

He was speaking about our relationship with God. Communication is a connection, a way to express thoughts, feelings and action to one another.

To have a relationship with God we MUST communicate. How? We talk to Him through prayer and He talks to us through His Word and the Holy Spirit. It has to be a regular thing. He desires us to come to Him daily for that true intimate relationship with him.

The same thing is true with our relationships with family and friends. If we do not keep communication active the relationship fades and can die. 

If you are out of fellowship with God, He is waiting for your relationship to begin again. Pray and ask His forgiveness for your neglect and that wonderful joy of communication with God will be restored immediately.

Maybe there is someone that you haven’t communicated with in a long time. Today, there is no excuse with email, Facebook, Phone and all the modern ways we have to talk to our friends and family. You may not get an immediate response but do not give up. Those relationships can be mended or improved but not without communication.

Hebrews 13:15-16 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
