All of us know someone who has gone through some difficult times but does not have a relationship with Jesus. We wonder how they go through life without Jesus. I was recently thinking this and I was reminded about how often I try to do life without Jesus. If I were to really look at one day of my life and answer the following questions, would it look like I lived for and with Jesus?
How many times did I ignore His voice?
How often did I stop to pray?
Did I take control or let Jesus have free reign?
How much time did I spend thinking about Him?
Did I give Him praise?
Did I recognize anything that He provided just for me?
Did I say thank you?
I fear we would admit to ourselves that we go through good days, calm days, and bad days, ignoring the very One who desires to be part of our lives. Today what can you and I do to live with Jesus? How can our faith be more active regardless of what our day may bring? Let us walk with Jesus and pay attention! Don’t do life on your own. Invite Him in!
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelation 3:20
