During my sixty-seven years on this earth I have made some wonderful friends. Some I am able to stay in contact with. Others I have lost touch with or they have went to their heavenly home. While I value these friendships, there is a man in the Bible that had the ultimate friendship. His name was Abram and his friend was God! James 2:23
It is one thing to know about God and it is quite another thing to actually know Him! College students sometimes decide to audit classes rather than take them as registered students. Auditing means that they can sit in on the classes and listen to the lectures, but they don’t have to do any of the work or use the textbooks. Auditing students simply listen and observe. One tendency of half-hearted Christians is to audit the Christian life.
They might profess to follow Christ and even go through the motions of obedience, but they don’t really know God or live in His power. People cannot believe that they could have a relationship with God just as Abram did. But the Bible says, “…God plays no favorites! It makes no difference who you are or where you’re from—if you want God and are ready to do as he says, the door is open.” Acts 10:34 (The Message)
You can experience a closeness with God that you have never had before. But it is up to you! When you seek Him with all your heart, He will be found!
