On a trip to Boise I saw a car that had a bumper sticker that said "My God can beat up your god." This broke my heart to see someone misled and unbelieving possibly feeling like Heaven was some sort of joke. I pray for individuals who feel this way.
Just how serious are you about getting closer to Jesus and God? If you have friends or family who fit the category of occasional believers continue to pray for them. To get to know Jesus it is necessary to dive into His instruction manual the Bible. Carry a small one with you to work or in your purse, backpack, or briefcase. Then get it out during times when you are just sitting. Fill your mind with God's word.
PRAYER: I love you Lord and I love your word. Many times I could open it up and read but I waste my time doing secular things which do nothing for my spirit. Help me order my day to make sure you are in it daily and perhaps set an example for someone around how may be observing me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
