Hello brothers and sisters in Christ!
I have found growth in Christ to be a sometimes perplexing, sometimes painful, sometimes confusing thing, and I’m more or less just starting… I have found it to be deep and joyful, startling and hopeful, both simple and overwhelmingly profound, to the point where I am conscious that I’m barely grasping the REAL significance of the Way, theTruth, and the life that is Jesus.
So here is my question, which has two parts:
What did you think you were getting when you came to Jesus? …or… what was Jesus to you at first?
What have you actually found you’ve received? …or… what has He become to you now?
I know you could quote scripture, but I guess I was looking for more deeply personal, raw answers, if anyone had the inclination to be so candid.
This question occurred to me today, and I don’t know if I’ve actually considered it deeply enough or long enough… I don’t know yet how I would answer it in a way that would begin to do it justice (if that’s possible).
Thanks in advance for sharing, I look forward to your answers.
I’m at work right now and even though I’d like to call myself a manly dude, my heart is overwhelmed in worship and I’m crying. Haha. So much for tough-guy nonsense.
JESUS IS ALIVE!!
