I want to know Christ. (Philippians 3:10, NIV)
Being a Christian is not living a set of rules.
It is living a relationship.
It’s like a marriage.
What God wants most from us is to
love the Lord your God with all your heart . . .
soul . . .
mind and . . .
strength (Mark 12:30).
I’ve learned that when my wife wants something –
when she’s irritable or withdrawn –
what she usually wants is me.
She wants to share with me.
She wants us to truly be together for a while.
Jesus is the same.
When He wants something from me,
He wants me.
Not some great work of service –
He wants me to turn to Him.
He wants to live that moment,
in relationship with me.
He wants us to walk together
