If your like me, there are probably times that you feel like your not as close to the Lord or have the excitement that other Christians seem to have.
But what I’m learning is, our closeness and excitement is all rooted in our obedience to The Lord and to the Word of God!
It’s easy to get away from a close relationship due to the decisions that we make that are not in line with Gods Word.
We sometimes make decisions that draw us away from Jesus because those decisions are things that he has already told us not to do.
Or we lose our closeness and excitement by our becoming to busy, we have a couple in our church that takes off for the entire summer because they have too many fun things to do.
The sad thing is, when people are not in fellowship with Gods people and with his Word, they lose their closeness to The Lord and find they begin to have many problems in their lives because The Lord is not blessing those who forsake the assembly of themselves together in Gods house. If we want the closeness and joy to be in our hearts we have to be with Gods people worshipping and enjoying each other’s company.
But we are living in days where we have become so self absorbed that churches continue to drop in attendance because we’re more important than our relationship to Christ is.
And Christians can’t understand why their lives are in such upheaval all the time. Perhaps the joy and excitement of Christ isn’t that important anymore, and maybe we need to be reminded that Jesus is returning very soon, and what will he say to you when you meet?
Will he say well done thou good and faithful child of mine? Or will he shake his head and ask you why didn’t you love me?
