Standing in the presence

Based on the Covenant service. One of the scripture passages was Deuteronomy 29:10-15 which had the lines of ‘Standing in the presence of the Lord your God’.

The image came as I considered the deeper meaning of the Christian faith in terms of a relationship with God through Christ made possible by the Holy Spirit.

In Christ God calls us to a new beginning, an intimate and organic relationship with our creator, where our lives become fruitful because of the life of God within us. To respond means living with the intention of pleasing God as starting point and the goal of our life but this is no arduous task because the Holy Spirit enables us and so we stand in the presence of the Living God, his joy is in us and our joy is made complete.
