Have you ever taken a moment to think about what Faith means to you? We have started this journey to be more like Christ, and to develop a deep personal relationship with him. But, we can never get to where need to be, until we start having unconditional faith in Him.
We tend put a lot of focus on ourselves. We come to Jesus in prayer, because we want him to move in our life. Sometimes though, we get so wound up thinking about our own problems that we forget to pray for those who are most dear to us. Worse still, we forget to express exactly how thankful we are for all the blessings that he’s given us.
Our lives are messy and because of that mess our minds are cloudy. Often times we’re unable to hear what God is trying to tell us. Either because we’re unwilling to hear anything but what we want to hear, we’re too busy trying to solve our own problems, or we have unresolved sin which make us feel unworthy to even receive a answer from God.
Our first step, in order to have a closer relationship with Jesus, is to confess with our mouths that he is who he says he is and invite him into our lives. (Romans 10:9-11)
