That Real Love & Open Face Omelette

Hosea 2:16 (niv)

“in that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me, ‘my husband’; you will no call me ‘my master.’”

Read

This verse is God’s heart for us. He’s contrasting the difference between an emotional connection built on love versus an obligation built around fear and authority. God’s desire has always been a loving relationship with us. Remember that we were created to be His companions; His friends.

But sin entered the world and tore all of that apart. Even now, with Jesus as the bridge, it’s challenging at best to maintain a loving view of God instead of an authoritative one. Sprinkle on the rules and legalism of religion, and we have the perfect environment for a “master-slave” relationship.

Religion doesn’t take the place of relationship. When Jesus came to earth, He made that incredibly clear by the way He interacted with the Pharisees. It’s still true today. God doesn’t want us to pray so that we can recite our required lines, He wants to connect with us. He doesn’t want us to tithe out of obligation or a contract we signed with our church, He wants us to trust Him with our finances.

If you’re engaged or married, you can probably remember every detail of the day your guy proposed. Remember how you felt in that moment? So loved, so special? Isn’t there something incredibly sweet about the idea of God desiring that same type of relationship with you?

Marriage certainly isn’t easy, and it definitely consists of doing things you don’t want to do. But hopefully, you see those things as a sacrifice or a compromise. A “have-to” relationship is very different than a “want-to” relationship. And that doesn’t mean that all the ins and outs are enjoyable, but the love is bigger and deeper.

Yesterday, we talked about God loving us no matter what, exactly as we are. Because of that, you and I can approach Him in love, not in fear. We’re seen in the way that a husband sees his wife, not in the way that a master sees a slave. And if you’re not ready for that type of relationship with God yet, that’s okay. Remember, He sees you right now, as is. It’s okay to start with a friendship. After all, some of the best marriages begin with friendship.

Do you view the relationship you have with God as a caring, loving relationship, or an authoritative master-slave relationship? Why do you feel that way? What can you focus on today to begin seeing your relationship with God differently?

Pray

For an accurate view and understanding of God’s heart for you.
