Why do you get to have a relationship with God? Why should you?
I guess it’s a question we could all ask. Honestly, why any of us?
Because actually it’s about God. God wants to spend time with you. He really does. He has, according to the apostle Paul “called you into fellowship with his Son”. How cool is that?
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:9)
The God who knows you better than anyone else on the planet, even your parents, loves you and wants to be in relationship with you. And He knows your strengths, weaknesses, sins and most embarrassing moments. But He still loves you and wants to connect with you.
He sees you. He picks you.
Ever had that time where you get picked last for something? Maybe you had it more than once. I did. It sucks doesn’t it?
But God picks you. You’re not last on His list. He “who has called you” looked at you and said, “I choose you”. That’s important and it’s real.
So, how about it? Today? Tomorrow? What could you do to spend time with God? Don’t’ do it out of guilt. See it as an opportunity.
Read the Bible, pray, take time in silent meditation, listen to or sing worship songs…. there are so many options. Pick one, take some time and go for it!
