Building a Relationship Building a personal relationship with Christ


Most of us struggle with questions about things eternal. It is part of relationship building. If we are to have a personal relationship with God we must be open and honest and unafraid to question. The Lord wants us to be real with Him. Like the sound relationship that one sees in a long and successful marriage, a relationship with God must first and foremost be based in honesty and truth. Love and trust come with time and experience. Our relationship with God is something that builds over time, like all good relationships, results in a sense of peace.

It is this peace and joy that we should impart to others. Our personal relationship with Christ is something that we should want to share, and not just with fellow Orthodox Christians. We KNOW God exists because we've experienced His great love in a personal way, and it is this certainty of the reality of God that leads us to reach out to the college students, and faculty, of the Puget Sound's area colleges others. They, like us, need to discover God for themselves, and build upon a relationship that began with conception.

With love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
