So often we relegate Jesus to be our genie in a bottle rather than our loving Savior. Our relationship is sometimes superficial and without the heartfelt love that should define the true nature of who He is. Do you want to be closer to Him? Then, think about a relationship that you’ve pursued. What were the steps you took to cultivate it? Let's take, for instance, a first date; you might go to dinner and begin chatting and telling the other person about yourself and then listen intently when they tell you about themselves. You don’t start it off by asking for something. You get to know them to see if you’re compatible. Even though you haven’t taken the time to pursue Him, you still ask Him for things. He has been pursuing you for your whole life, stop and let Him catch you. This life is not about what He can do for you, it’s about a loving relationship with Him.
may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:18-19
