Many Christians emphasize Jesus' second coming as the event that will usher in our heavenly life with God, but in the meantime, here on earth, they neglect to nurture their relationship with God. However, we cannot expect to enjoy Christ's company and fellowship in heaven if we cannot enjoy it now. We can only love and follow Christ in heaven if we love and follow Him now.rn "Lasting Relationship With God" is your guide to understanding the importance of intimately connecting with our wonderful Savior on earth in preparation for heaven. We are created to connect with others, and our most important connection, first and foremost, is with God. As with all relationships, maintaining a lasting friendship with God is a two-way street. You need to be an active participant in the development of your closeness with God.rn As discussed within the pages of this book, you play a part in this friendship through repentance, learning from God, participating in service, and talking regularly with God. Read about these and other components of a fruitful Christian life to prepare for Jesus' soon coming. This book will motivate you to develop a deeper, lasting connection with God, which will offer you boundless peace, joy, and blessings.
