Building A Relationship With God
There is just NOT enough bacon in the world! I love bacon! Every trip to the grocery store yields another package of bacon purchased. Bacon is just good! Soups, salads, sandwiches, by it’s self. Bacon just enhances any dish!
What if… I was as passionate about Jesus as I am about bacon? There is not enough Jesus in this fallen world. Jesus is perfect for every situation. Feeling lonely, no direction or purpose, sad, mad, offended. There is nothing this world can dish, that Jesus can’t help us through. What if I could shout out to anyone “I love Jesus!” What if every trip, outside of my home, yielded seeds planted in the spirits of the lost?
There is nothing wrong with loving bacon or cake, or whatever it is that you love. I love bacon and cake! I love writing for God. I love painting. I love my husband and our little Worm so very much! We have to keep ourselves in check though to make sure we don’t love something or someone more than we love God.
Jesus says in Matthew 10:37-37 (KJV)
37- He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38- And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
2 Peter 1:2-8 (KJV)
2- Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3- According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertaineth unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
4- Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5- And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6- And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7- And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8- For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This week I challenge you and myself to Love God more. Seek Him out more. Take this love or worldly things and use that passion to bring Glory to God!
I Love Jesus!
Have a Blessed Week in Christ!
