True Family

One thing I love about following Jesus is the family I’ve found in other Christians. It feels good to be surrounded by people who aim to become more like Christ. Those friendships are certainly the healthiest, most uplifting relationships I ever had in my life – I can literally feel the Holy Spirit at work in others.

I’ve been slowly detaching myself from the world as I realize how fake it has become. Truly, the world is a deceiful place – it seems like all people care about is competing against each others for ressources: sex, beauty, money, influence, etc.

I can understand how feeding your ego is all that matters when you’ve never experienced the unconditional love of the Father – and you have no hope on your death.

I’m currently upset with the world as I wish more people would come to Jesus. At the same time, I’ve already been part of the world… before God saved me.

I’ve been part of the world, but now I want to be set apart from the world – because its values doesn’t reflect who I am.

I do care for unbelievers, but I cannot deeply connect with them anymore – how sad?!

All I see is self-deception, and how lost people are without their Creator.

I wish everyone would hear and believe the gospel, and be touched by the enormous sacrifice Jesus did for us on the cross.

I wish all humanity would accept Christ and become part of God’s family, because He really is a good Father for his children.

While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”

He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his
disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers.  For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

Matthew 12:46-50

  1. One of the most comforting, to me, things that I have received from listening to my Higher Power, who I now choose to call God, is that all I must do is humbly say “God, help me.” Then get out of His way and let Him. I was amazed when I first tried this and now feel so blessed to have learned to do this. As soon as I ask for His help with something, I must avoid trying to direct Him in any way. I may not always like the results but later discover that the right thing happened. No matter how big my problem is, my God is bigger. Have a blessed day! Jim
