Hey folks…time to send a message from my pastor’s heart. Doesn’t happen very often, but here it is.
We get a lot of traffic on this blog and my personal blog, and lots of posts. But on Monday on this blog, I asked everyone a question: how is your dialogue with Jesus going? Your personal time with Him? This comes out of my personal conviction that I spoke about in part two of Jesus the Guru (watch it here) that Christians are far less personally devoted to Jesus than people of other religions are to their gods.
We’ll think about Jesus, expect things of God, talk about Jesus. But deep down, as a pastor, I secretly fear too many Christians are crashing spiritually when it comes to their personal walk with Christ (prayer and reading scripture).
So I asked people to tell us your story. Number of posts? Zip. Notta. Zero. Blanko. We’ll post on just about any subject. But not this one.
It’s making me wonder whether my fear that people just aren’t generally investing personal time with God is grounded. So, are you reading the Bible? Praying? Relating directly to this amazing God with more than our laundry list of complaints and concerns? I’m not your dad checking up on you. I just believe none of us will grow if we don’t personally invest in this.
What are you hearing from God? If you’re not hearing from Him, what blocks your devotional time? What are you frustrated by when you read the Bible? Do you hear from God? Post here, or go back to Monday and share. I’m just so anxious to see us all connecting. Let’s talk about it!
