What is the motivation of your relationship with God? Do you believe Him because of an underlying fear? or can you actually say that you love Him 100%. what is stopping you from committing sin? is it because you do not want to spoil the intimacy you have with God or because you are scared of the consequences. at which of the following levels could you and I be in?
The journey of love is split into 4 stages
Stage 1 - Everyone starts as a sinner at the feet of Jesus. We ask his forgiveness
Stage 2 - Jesus doesn't let us remain at His feet he forgives us and He raises us up to his shoulder.
The 3rd stage is to be embraced by God as his son and daughter, We are forgiven, transformed and lifted to the level of divine sonship
the 4th stage is the intimacy, where He and I become one.
