The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock.
2 Samuel 22:47
What does it mean to serve the living God? What separates our God from all the other gods of this world? The answer to these questions is more than a feeling or following a set of rules. It’s an ongoing relationship with the Creator and Father God through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The evidence of a living God is the internal change in each believer when we move from darkness to light. While each of us have different stages of growth and maturity in our Christian walk—everyone who belongs to God has the light of Jesus Christ within them.
