In response to the end of yesterday’s post… and since today is Friday! I thought I would mix today up a little.
Yesterday we learned (or remembered) how God is always with us, how He has gone before us, and He is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life!
Maybe since yesterday you’ve thought more about Christ’s constant presence. I pray we’re all more aware of how close He really is.
In thinking of how close Christ is and how committed to us He is…I wonder how committed we are to Him. In order to be committed to Christ we should confess our sins, believe that His is Lord, and follow Him. (You’ve heard that before right?)
So answer this for me, does your commitment to Christ end there?
My best friend proposed to me two months ago, and he is a God-fearing, Christ centered man (most of the time). He tells me he loves me and shows he cares about me in different ways. If my fiancé’s commitment to me were simply to tell me he loves me every now and then (mostly when he needed something from me), and he only tries to see me once or twice a week (maybe three times), and he does nothing else to try and know me better and grow closer in our relationship, I would NOT want to spend the rest of my life with him.
Sadly, most of us are pretty content with our commitment to God being just that… a relationship where we say ‘I love you’ when we need/want something…where we only spend a little time with Christ…and we do very little to know Him and His will.
I am going to end here today…With the hope you will consider the commitment you’re giving to Christ.
