Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Minute Friday! This week’s theme is “alone”. To learn more about Five Minute Friday, please visit Kate’s blog for more details… Each week, a community of bloggers come together with the common goal is to spend five unedited minutes to write on a topic.
Alone, to be by oneself.
Who are we when we are alone?
When we are around others, I suppose it is easy to keep on the mask that we have glued to our personalities. But, who are we… alone?
Who are we when the world seems to not be watching?
How is our faith in Christ?
More importantly, how is our relationship with Jesus Christ when we are alone?
When we are alone, although with Christ, we can truly be ourselves. We can live for a few moments without the expectations of others hanging over our heads. We can stop, and just be with Jesus -our Lord and Savior.
How often do you seize the opportunity to just be alone with Christ? How has it strengthened your relationship? We are One with Christ. To Him be the glory. To Him be the fame. When we are alone with Him, we are finally home. We are where we were meant to be.
Know Your Identity
We are loved.
We are treasured.
We are shown compassion.
When we are alone, we can simply just be.
“Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you (1 Cor. 3:16, NLT)?”
How does your alone time with Christ prepare you to be
in community with other believers and followers of Jesus?
How does spending time alone with God, your Deliverer,
help you to have unity in His church?
We need our alone time with our Savior so much! If only we realized, the great need… If only we realized its benefits to point out to our weary souls that we truly are One with our Creator!
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth (Ps. 46:10, NIV).”
