Do you enjoy God? God took me a step further after I wrote my post yesterday. After thinking on God creating us to enjoy fellowship with us...and then thinking on maybe we should enjoy one another...this thought came up. Do I enjoy God?
I mean...I revere Him, I serve Him, I honor Him, I speak to Him, I listen to Him, I worship Him, I read about Him, I write about Him, I speak about Him...but do I enjoy Him? I can say I have on occasion. We've even enjoyed a laugh together! But I think I haven't enjoyed Him enough. If He created me to enjoy fellowship with me, I think he's been losing out on this deal. I've been getting hung up on my servitude position--a slave doesn't usually enjoy fellowship with his master. I think I've seen myself in that position more than the position of a friend. John, who happened to be Jesus' closest friend, talks a lot about friendship with God. Worshiping Him, serving Him, and honoring Him didn't prevent John from being a friend to the Son of God--and enjoying Him.
I want to consciously enjoy God--every day. I'm not sure how to develop this kind of friendship where we deeply enjoy one another except to go to Him and just say, "God, I want to be Your friend. I want to enjoy You!"
I can't wait!
