In Front of Jesus

We can be sure of three things about growing in our relationship with God. It can seem slow. It can be challenging. But it is certain.

If we don’t expect real life change, we keep God at an ineffective distance. If we recognize Jesus merely as the son of Mary and Joseph then we are like many of the people in His hometown. But when we see God for who He is—Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father and Prince of Peace—we have an expectancy that brings His word to life and ignites a passion in our pursuit of Him. We’ll go to great lengths to get to Jesus, just like the men in Luke 5 who lowered a paralytic through a hole in the roof so Jesus could heal him.

If you want to experience real change and freedom, dive into Scripture expecting to hear from God. Let His words come alive and ask Him to minister to heart-level issues.
