Meeting Jesus Among the Oaks and Pines
Jesus calls people to Himself in different ways. He can use miraculous means such as a blinding light, a powerful vision, or unforgettable dream. Other times He uses His soft voice to undeniably call a heart to repentance.
You, Your Preacher, and Jesus
In the end, it is not our pastor, our bishops, elders, deacons, etc., who will stand before Jesus. If you believe what the Bible teaches (and if you don’t I’m not sure why you would call yourself a Christian), you realize that Christ is our ultimate Judge. Whether you believe what the Word says or not, you will be judged by it. Denying Christ, whether it be by unbelief or by changing Scripture and calling sin good, ends the same way.
Jesus is never too busy for you
If you have a problem, seek Him. Now, this does not mean that you should expect immediate results, nor does it mean that you will get exactly what you desire. It could be that you coming to Jesus is more important.
Do you know how much God loves you?
Maybe you have been so involved with “being a Christian” that you have forgotten the Christ that you serve. Maybe you have been spiritually feeding others so much that you have not fed yourself. Or maybe, you have no relationship with Him at all. You don’t understand this Christian thing, and you think it’s not for you. Christ has the same solution for all of the above.
The Idolatry of "My Jesus"
Please realize the sovereignty of the One you reference when you say “My Jesus says.” Make sure that you have not created an idol in your mind of who Jesus is. If you are referencing the only Son of God that died on Calvary as the sin ransom for man, that’s one thing. If you are referencing a weak, westernized, no consequences for our sin Jesus, it’s not Jesus that you are worshiping.
