(Pro 3:3 KJV) Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
As I read through this chapter today I was struck by the constant call for buy-in. I guess in computers we might talk about refresh. When you are on the internet you see a little circular arrow in the top corner. I think of it as a refresh for the page. When you hover your cursor over it the term is “reload page”. In our spiritual lives we tend to want to get stuck in the mud, with the familiar. We don’t want to get current.
Often that is not a problem but we do not serve a static God. He may be immutable but He is vital in His personhood. There are always fresh insights and truths that slipped under our radar. I know when I approve comments on my blog they do not appear until I do something that renews the page.
So? “Relationship” in the modern sense is not in the Bible but it does lift up the reality of a walk with the Living God. While it is eternal and based on eternal truth it is constantly renewed. I am guessing that is because we are not capable of eternal focus and need to be retargeted.
