The Personal Journey 365, continual communion
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8, NIV
Continual communion is the personal love affair with Jesus Christ. As with any intimate relationship, the very natural next step when free choice is made to our intentions is pursuit of the desire. With Christ as the object of our desire the magnificent passion begins. This divine relationship brings a fullness and depth of understanding far beyond any conventional wisdom.
When someone truly falls in adoring love with someone else, their thoughts, their actions, their hearts are guided by this surrender. The difference with this love of God is a fullness that transcends our limited capacity to comprehend. This agape love is unconditional, and with it presents an abundance that defies all human ability to explain. The only possible way to appreciate this communion is through personal experience. If you know this love of Christ, then you know God, and knowing only comes through familiarity.
From this depth of our being comes deep awareness as we progress forward on the journey of continual communion with Christ. Our mind and hearts are literally transformed as we become one with Christ and our perspective on every aspect of life is forever altered.
The communion is life-long and as we grow more intimate in this powerful relationship Truth naturally unveils itself. From Truth we are given the tools needed to discern and walk in victory in every aspect of our lives. The void within our hearts that nothing else can fill becomes overflowing with abundance.
The overwhelming abundance is what spills over onto others and fulfills Christ’s declaration to, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27, NIV
