Today in chapel, our speaker focused on our personal relationship with God. This sermon really applies to my life because it is so easy to take God for granted and just casually walk in my faith with God. The line in 1 Peter 2:9 that says “a people for his own possession” is very reassuring to me, yet I tend to use this in the wrong manner. Sin comes easily for all of us, and I am no exception. I find myself in sin, aware of what I am doing, but then find it justified because I know God will forgive me of my sins. Since these things have happened in my life, the main thing that speaks to me is about being careful or being careless in my walk with God. When the speaker was preaching, I became aware that my relationship with God cannot be taken lightly: if I am not fully committed, God will not recognize me in the Kingdom of Heaven. This fact really convicts me, and it shows me that I cannot just know God, but I have to stay responsible and accountable in my faith. So, after chapel, the main point I am taking away is that just because I am “sealed” by God does not justify my sinful actions. Therefore, I cannot just “know” God, but I have to have a committed, personal relationship with Him.
