Simple Steps to Reconnecting with God


Reconnecting with God by Dennis and Dr. Jen Clark

Many of us have been surprised by impulses, thoughts, and emotions that seem to come out of the blue and throw us off course. And oftentimes, we enter into sinful behavior and yield to the temptation. So there is a need to promptly reconnect with Christ in an intimate and life-giving way.

It doesn’t have to be long, drawn-out process, but it does have to be prompt and intentional.

The Bible promises that if we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (see 1 John 1:9). John isn’t speaking of a process of repentance and penance that we perform to get in God’s good graces, but an instantaneous cleansing of unrighteousness, resulting in a restoration of our connection with Christ. We can once again begin to walk in fellowship with Him and with one another.

When we break fellowship with Him, however, we have an Advocate with the Father through Jesus Christ:

My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world (1 John 2:1-2).

The provision for being reconnected with God quickly and effectively is the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on our behalf. Because of His shed blood, we can walk in an abiding lifestyle with the Father, sensing His peace and feeling His presence throughout every moment of every day.
