What is the definition of communion? It is the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level. There are many ways we experience communion and closeness to God. I want to share with you the best way I know how to meet with God and join in communion with Him.
Give God your first and find a meeting place.
What do i mean by that?
In the old testament their was a tent of meeting that was always set up in the center of camp. The rest of the camp was built around this main tent. What does that revel? You need to build a tent of meeting to be with God. Every child of God must dwell with God in worship, prayer, and communion. In order to dwell with God you need to build or create a tent of meeting.
How can you do this?
It’s more then just finding a quiet place. You need to build and set up your meeting place with God in the center of you life. It must be the center of your day, the center of your schedule, the center of everything you do, the center of your life. That’s the key. If it’s not the center, then every other thing will crowd it out of existence. You don’t fit your time with God around your day or around your activities. Your relationship with God and the sacred meetings of that relationship can only occupy one place in your life. The center.
Center your life and everything of your life around God and your time with God. When you continue to meet with God in this one sacred place it becomes essentially a hot spot. A place of meeting that God arrives at with you to join in intimate communion. When you do that, everything else will fall into place.
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
“But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Of course God is with you always but wouldn’t it be better if you start your day in your tent of meeting and let God’s presence leave with you and go wherever you go throughout your day?
Every life is to be made temple filled with God’s presence. But without God’s presence we become a temple desecrated, defiled, darkened, filled with idols. Don’t let material things or even other people in your life become more important. We are created to live holy lives and treat our temples preciously. A temple created to be holy but fallen from its purpose is what God wants to prevent.
What do you do if that’s you?
You open the doors of your life and you let God come in. Let the Holy Spirit cleanse you and restore you.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
You let Him take away your sins, cleanse your impurities, restore your purpose, light up your heart, and fill your life with His presence. It’s never too late to rededicate your temple back to God. When you honor God with your body and ask Him to take away the fleshly desires He will fill it with His glory. In other words, let God dwell within you, walk beside you, restore your heart and soul.
Give God your first.
Let the Holy Spirit dwell within you.
Walk in the way Jesus walked.
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”
2 Corinthians 13:14
