Renew Your Understanding of Your Personal Relationship with God (Deity)
Bible study on your relationship with God.

The first two principles we have investigated are: 1) Seek God; 2) Renew your understanding of self as falling short of the glory of God. The third principle involves renewing your understanding of your personal relationship with God.

Paul instructs the Romans saying: "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Rom. 12:2). Transformed means transfigured, changed. Christians are to continuously renew (make new) their lives into knowledge, according to the will of God (Col. 2:10). By having an appropriate understanding of our relationship with God (along with a primal desire to seek Him understanding that we fall short of His glory) we are motivated to continuously renew our minds to God's praise, glory, and honor.

There are many aspects of our relationship with God expressed in Romans. Since space here is limited, the aim of this article will be to note many of the facets of man's relationship with God. Some of these aspects of our relationship (positive and negative) with God from Romans are:

  1. 1:5 obedience to the faith

  2. 1:7 beloved (adj.) of God

  3. 1:16 called, converted, the power of God, the gospel

  4. 1:18 wrath of God; ungodliness, unrighteousness

  5. 1:20, 25 God, Creator

  6. 1:30 haters of God

  7. 2:5-8 God will render to each one according to deeds: eternal life, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish

  8. 2:11 no partiality with God

  9. 3:22 righteousness of God through Jesus Christ, on all who believe

  10. 3:23 all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

  11. 3:24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

  12. 3:25 Jesus: propitiation by His blood, through faith

  13. 3:26 God: just and justifier

  14. 4:5 faith is accounted for righteousness

  15. 5:1-2 justified by faith; through Jesus, through whom we have access by faith into this grace

  16. 5:5 love of God poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us

  17. 5:6-8 Christ died for us while we were yet sinners

  18. 5:9 justified by the blood of Christ

  19. 6:1 not sin that grace may abound

  20. 6:3, 4 baptized into Christ, buried with Him, walk in newness of life

  21. 6:5 united together with Christ in likeness of His death; shall also be in His resurrection

  22. 6:10 live to God

  23. 6:11 dead to sin, alive to God in Christ

  24. 6:13 present members to God

  25. 6:15 ff self-enslaved to God

  26. 7:1-6 freed from law to marry another, Christ

  27. 8:1 no condemnation in Christ

  28. 8:1-2 walk according to the Spirit

  29. 8:14 led by the Spirit

  30. 8:16-17 adopted children of God

  31. 8:26-27 Spirit helps in weakness, intercedes

  32. 8:31-39 nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ

Let me encourage you to take your relationship with God seriously. Remember that it is important to personalize the aspects of our relationship to God (Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit) in order for these things to be meaningful. Those who have transformed themselves according to the will of God await the day wherein they gain entrance into their heavenly abode. But those who are conformed to this world await judgement and eternal destruction.
