Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 8:11 (KJV); And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
God is relational.
He has not designed the Christian life to be lived through agents. He wants to directly deal with you, not through some medium, be it living or non-living. This is what makes the walk of salvation personal.
Men and women of God are not your agents for access to God. They are not there to primarily see for you, hear for you or know God for you.
If that is the nature of your relationship with Him, then it is not Christianity. It is only in pagan traditions that men relate with higher beings through intermediaries.
Our theme scripture reveals that it is God’s ultimate desire that every man know Him, from the least to the greatest; from the least anointed to the most anointed.
Cultivate intimacy with God. Let it be your personal ambition to know Him for yourself. That is the uniqueness of salvation and Christianity; that men were reconciled to God in relationship.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for inviting me into deeper places of intimacy with You. I am taught by Your Spirit every day because I know You are a God of relationship. I acknowledge You in all my ways because You are my Lord and Master, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
