In our desire for a new season and new experiences let us never advance so far that we become detached from our alignment to what we had at the beginning. We must take the beginning with us, it must be in us and it must emerge through everything we do. This gospel of Jesus Christ is not something to believe but also to experience, to abide in. Jesus Christ is our beginning.
“As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he promised us—eternal life.” (1 John 2 v 24-25)
The benefits for not moving on from the beginning is the ongoing relationship with the Son and the Father. At the end of everything we will be asked by the Lord, “Do we know each other?” Take the beginning with you and your answer will be yes! And with this relationship we therefore have life!
