Living for Jesus?

They were the best of times and the worst of times, not to rip anyone off or anything. These past several months have been a journey of a life time, and it feels like a journey that lasts a lifetime. full of many great blessings from God and also full of many hard times from the enemy or perhaps even self inflicted. This is a period in my life that I would not exchange for an easier road or a simpler path because what I have learned through it is without price.

I think that there is a point in life that we all need to come to and that point is in discovering that what we need more than anything else in this whole wide world is Jesus. I am not talking about a casual kind of distant relationship with an ethereal being, I am talking about a give me Jesus or give me death kind of a need to be in a close and vibrant relationship with Him.

I cannot, and you cannot have a relationship with God that is meaningful, vibrant, and real unless we are spending time with Him regularly and reading His Word the Bible regularly. So many Christians have weak and anemic relationships with Christ, because they do not spend time with Him, and read His word. This is not how it is supposed to be people, we are promised so much more than that. The only thing is we need to get involved in a love affair with God and His word!

Are you content to live life the way you have been or is there a cry deep within you saying "there must be more"?

If so then why not take time to really cry out to God and spend time with Him. It will change your life, God promised.

But the grace that God gives is even stronger. As the scripture says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." So then, submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will run away from you. Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners! Purify your hearts, you hypocrites! Be sorrowful, cry, and weep; change your laughter into crying, your joy into gloom! Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Jam 4:6-10 GNB
