Well, I pray that your day has been a blessing thus far. Many of us have a close relationship with our cellphone. We spend much time with our cellphones. We make sure our cellphones are with us wherever we go. Before we leave out of the door, we make sure we have our cellphones. During the day, we make sure we come in contact with our cellphones. Some of us are brave enough to come in contact with our cellphones while driving. At night, we lay closer to our cellphones than we do our mates. Now, someone who is reading this is probably saying, “I use my cellphone for this and that.” Look, I am not saying that cellphones are bad but sometimes, our relationship is stronger with cellphones than it is with people and especially with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Some of us worship our phones and not Jesus Christ. He should be THE ONE we spend a lot of time with. THE ONE we wake up to and lay with. THE ONE we allow to be with us wherever we go. THE ONE we come in contact with rather sitting, walking or driving. If our relationship with Christ isn’t healthy, then how can the relationship with others be healthy? We become like what we behold. To worship an idol is to become like the idol; to worship Christ is to become like Christ. “They rejected his decrees and the covenant he had made with their ancestors and the statutes he had warned them to keep. They followed worthless idols and themselves became worthless. They imitated the nations around them although the LORD had ordered them, ‘Do not do as they do'” (II Kings 17:15).
