I’m a spiritual romantic. I keep falling deeper and deeper in love with Jesus. No religion can compare to a spiritual romance with the living Jesus Christ.
My life is a Christ-mance. Ever since I first encountered Jesus He has continually captured and wowed my heart. The ultimate benefit of an open heart is continual awareness of the presence of the living Jesus in the present moment.
A closed heart is like a stagnant pond. A heart that opens to God begins to experience rivers of living water.
Let God roll away the stone from your entombed heart and fill you with His life. If you keep your heart excited about Jesus, you’ll want to spend every moment interacting with Him. Jesus deserves much more than a little “quiet” or “devotional” time during your day. Think about and interact with Him all day long.
Because Christ-followers all have a direct connection with the living Jesus, we’re not dependent on an organizational hierarchy. Christianity isn’t about a particular church. It’s about a particular Savior–the living Jesus as described in the Bible!
When you can’t think of a way out of a difficult situation, turn down your mind. Then open up your heart to God’s inner guidance. The most effective way to connect with other people and with God is to open your heart.
