James 4:5 (Indonesian Simple Translation 3) The Scripture also says, “The Spirit of God who lives in us is jealous and wants complete faithfulness to Him.” Do you think that verse is just vain?!

Deuteronomy 6:5 (NKJV) You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Luke 14:26 (TLB) “Anyone who wants to be my follower must love me far more than he does his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, or sisters—yes, more than his own life—otherwise he cannot be my disciple.

The Holy Spirit keeps bringing out the word ‘bonding’ in my heart these past few weeks. This morning I got the verse above and the explanation below about the meaning of the word:

To make our hearts full of complete peace and joy, He wants us to have ‘bonding’ only with the Holy Spirit. Because the source of true peace is only from the Holy Spirit. Know, that friendship (bonding, sense of belonging) with what is in this world will only make our emotions waver.

Indeed, it does not seem ‘humane’ when we ‘only direct the bonding that we have completely only with God, not with others’, but that is precisely what will make ‘those closest to us’ experience the touch of God’s love. Because when we completely belong only to Him, then at that time we will completely become a PORTAL of encounter between man and God and we ourselves will manifest Christ. Isn’t that (Christ) what the people closest to us need?

When our ‘bonding’ is still not completely with God, then that’s when there is an opportunity for other spirits to manifest themselves through us.

Ephesians 4:26-27 (NKJV) “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.

I understand more and more the meaning of loving God with all heart, soul and strength, that speaks fully to our inner being united with God alone. This is the determining factor of life that is not shaken in His Kingdom: full of truth, peace, and joy.

Believe, the time will come when many people will seek that peace and joy in us. We will show them the way of connecting with the reality of God. This is the only way to enjoy heaven on earth!!

Revelation 21:3-4 (NKJV) And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
