How much distance is there between God and me?
Mark tells us that Jesus was asked which of the commandments was most most important and Jesus answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Jesus replied, ” You are not far from the kingdom of God.”
It’s like he said – “Good job, buddy! You’re figuring this out!” I’m sure Jesus had a smile on his face when he said this because Jesus was surrounded by people who weren’t getting it but this man was starting to understand the truth.
I pray that Jesus would say this to me if he was sitting next to me this morning. “You’re figuring it out, Judy!” That’s what this journey towards the truth is all about.
Am I getting closer to God as I study his Word? Am I letting God transform me as I put his Truth into practice in my life?
How about you?
Thank for this this journey towards the Truth – towards you, Abba Father.
