7 Ways to Take Your Relationship With God to the Next Level

4. Follow a Christian Lifestyle

In order to become a part of God, you must follow His teachings.

Jesus told His disciples in the upper room, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:23).

James tells us that as we submit ourselves to God through obedience, resist the devil, and draw near to God, He will draw near to us (James 4:7-8).

Paul tells us in Romans that our obedience is our “living sacrifice” of thanksgiving to God (Romans 12:1).

Submitting yourself to God and living out a Christian lifestyle will let you grow closer to Him. Showing God that we want to be obedient tells Him that we love Him and we are grateful for all He has done for us.
