Eric Gilmour encourages everyone to enjoy their Christian life.
One way to enjoy our life as followers of Jesus Christ is by coming to Him every single day. Enjoy being in His presence and fellowshipping with Him. Just like how a father longs for his child’s attention and time, so does God long for His children’s presence.
“I don’t think there’s a bigger insult to God than not coming to Him every day,” Eric said. “I don’t think there’s a bigger way of saying ‘I got this, I don’t need you to rule me,’ than not sitting before Him every day.”
Intimacy with God means spending time and enjoying His presence. You don’t need to be as perfect as Jesus to enjoy His presence, you just need to come to Him just as you are.
“You don’t need to be as perfect as Jesus to enjoy God, because as you enjoy God, He will make you like Jesus.”
Jesus has paid the price on the cross for you to have the fullness of God. The cup of wine, which is the new covenant between God and His people, is always available for you to drink.
“The Bible says in Solomon drink deep. You can drink always. There’s a cup of wine for you, purchased for you by the broken body of the lamb of God and installed in you by the Holy Ghost. You can drink the wine of heaven right now.”
Enjoy your Christian life. You are not called as slaves of Christ, you are called as His friends, as His family.
“The Church needs to change her mind. We need to recognize that the secret of the Christian life is not how much we work but how much we enjoy.”
