Jesus wants us to be in relationship with him. ξService for Jesus is not sustainable without being with Jesus. ξAll the work we do for the Kingdom of God, does not impress God. ξBut when we are with Him, the love we are filled with will overflow into service. ξBeing with Jesus, and doing work for Jesus, may look the same, but they differ in the posture of our heart and the state of our relationship with God.
Scripture: Luke 15:11-32, Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3:17-19
