Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

“They should have known that he was God. His patience should have proved that to them.” (Tertullian)

“He wakes desires you never may forget; He shows you stars you never saw before.”

     (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

“Is it any wonder that to this day this Galilean is too much for our small hearts?” (H. G. Wells)

“When Christ came into my life, I came about like a well-handled ship.” (Robert Louis Stevenson)

 

Here is a staggering reality that is not too good to be true—our Creator yearns to enjoy daily fellowship with us. Here is an opportunity that is not wishful thinking—our Father cordially invites us to enjoy quiet communion with Him.

 

The Master of the human heart stands at the door of our personality and patiently knocks. If we hear His gentle rap and open the door, He will become our greatest Friend.

 

Friendship with God is more than a dream—it is a dramatic adventure we can personally experience. Immanuel is God with us—a Friend nearer than our hands and feet, closer than our breathing.

 

Jesus is our best answer to prayer and our supreme blessing. His mercy enables us to recover from moral defeat. His grace helps us face turmoil tranquilly. His promises reassure us so we can hope perpetually. When perplexity crowds our inmost self, His consolation cheers our soul. When we need help the most, He is right beside us.

 

There’s no need to attempt to plot our own course through life’s storms—we can navigate by the Bright Morning Star.

 

Until we stroll heaven’s golden streets, we can walk earthly roads with a spring in our step—if we let Jesus take our hand.

 

I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Revelation 3:20 NLT
