Consider a husband who is in love with his wife and vice versa. How others feel about the spouse is immaterial. A husband wants his friends to know how he feels about his wife and how grateful he is for her. After all, she is the one he is in love with. He insists with his friends, "You really need to meet her." When we are in love with Christ, it has the same results. Our friends may not feel about Him the way we do, but they still need to meet Him.
Many Christians, and non Christians, know there is a God, and even believe Jesus died on the cross. But are you in love with Him? Knowing 'about' someone is not the same as having a close relationship with someone. Too many distractions have crept in and confused getting to know Jesus with religion. It's not, nor has it ever been about religion. It's about RELATIONSHIP.
The more time you spend with a person, the closer the two of you become. The closer you two become the more you start to care about what the other person thinks. It's like that with Christ. No, it's not a romantic relationship, it's far better -- it's an everlasting, Holy, Eternal relationship. One that'll protect and keep you.
Don't let the enemy (satan) hustle you out of your usefulness to God. God knew you while you were in your Mother's womb. He spoke to you, plans of hope, not pain, a future for success (spiritual not material, although that could happen). Jeremiah 29:11
Too often today, young people are turned OFF from a life of Faith in Jesus due to the hypocrisy and distractions all around them. Well, let me say this, 'there's counterfeit money in circulation every day but you don't let that stop you from going to the Bank. Do you?
Don't let the enemy hustle you out of the free gift of Salvation (John 3:16, Romans 3:23, 6:23)
YOU matter 2 God. Give Christ a shot; you've tried everything else, try the best.
