The Most Beautiful Thing…
One thing about having this blog is that I occasionally I will have people I’ve never met before messaging me for advice, prayer encouragement etc.. and I love it and I think it’s amazing. Barely two days ago this person messaged me asking for advice about a situation. We spoke quite a while about various things then when I went to end the conversation I started to speak about having a relationship with Jesus. I said how it wasn’t about being religious or falling a bunch of rules but it’s about a relationship. Because He wants to have a relationship with us.
When I said that, I didn’t even think twice about it. It’s something that I’ve personally believed for a long time now and when I said it, it just seemed normal to me. It was their reply that struck a chord with me for some reason… They said ‘wow… that was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard’. Now, it wasn’t that they said having a relationship with Jesus was beautiful that got me, because I believe it’s the most beautiful and amazing thing… it was that they were surprised that even having a relationship with Jesus was an actual thing. That’s what got me.
Everyone deserves to know this beauty. Everybody deserves to know and understand the love that God has for them and the relationship He would love to create with them.
Together I believe that we can show people what it’s all about. We can kick the stereotype of a bunch of boring rules out the window and show them the love that comes from the relationship. We can show them the passion and the excitement and warmth that come from Him. Together, we can show people something different. We can allow them to see that God wants to draw near to them. That He doesn’t want to dictate them but He just wants to show them love. We can help them to know that Jesus is waiting with His arms open wide ready to hold them tight. Together we can show them. Together we can allow them to feel so loved because of the relationship that Jesus wants to have with them.
