God will not always be first in our lives.
This is truth in my life. Sometimes I will put video games, my friends, my family, my girl, and my feelings in front of God. I will push Him back so that I can take care of my life. I try to handle my own life in my own way. This usually leaves me dissatisfied. Sometimes I fail miserably doing things by myself.
A lot of Christians will fall away from Christ early on in their lives, and when they want to come back, they’re too afraid that Christ wont accept them. They believe that they have to gain God’s favor before they can come back to Christ.
Sometimes this is how I feel. I feel like I haven’t been living a credible Christian life. I feel like I’m not good enough for God’s forgiveness. I feel like I blame God for all my problems, worries, fears, anxieties, and depressions. Whenever trouble arises in my life I feel like I have to be the solution, and I forget to give everything to God.
I feel like I’m separated from Christ.
But in my times of trials I try to remember these few verses.
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39 NIV)
Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
Those times I feel like I’m not a credible Christian, Christ is saying “I am here for you son.”
Those times where I feel like I’m not good enough for his salvation, He’s saying, “you’re more than enough my son.”
Those times when I blame God for my problems, and take my troubles into my own hands, God’s saying, “give me your worries son!”
And the times I feel lost, God’s always saying, “I love you son.”
For those who are reading this blog and feel like they’re separated from Christ, it’s not too late to reconnect.
You don’t have to go and change your life in order to get right with God.For Go so loved the world that WHOEVER believes shall not parish.
God is always reaching his hands down to us. Every second. Every minute. Every hour. Every day. Every month. Every year. God is constantly wanting our love, and all we have to do is reach up and grab it.
People in church might say, “change, and you can come,” but God says, “come, and you’ll change.”
