How long has it been since you felt a deep intimacy with Jesus?
Sometimes, when your relationships with other people get cold, it’s because you’ve grown cold with Jesus. Warm up to him again. He never holds a grudge. He never looks to settle a score. Jesus only gives.
Remember, it’s not a list of things to do that gives you life. Our faith is not faith in rules or doctrines. Our faith is in a person – Jesus Christ.
When you return to your first love, you regain strength. God’s grace and peace fill your life. Then you can start giving and loving others as Jesus loves you.
Return to him. Return to knowing him and feeling the deepness of his mercy and love for you. Be sure again that you are forgiven and loved as you are.
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear… We love because he first loved us.”
1 John 4:18a, 19

What a beautiful discourse to what is so important in our desire to be close to Jesus. I needed to be reminded of this, as there are many earthly things that can distract us from our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. May God be with you as you continue your good works.
Thank you Karen for your kindness and blessing. God bless you too!
