My heart for you

There is a perfect God who is perfect love and He invites you to draw near to Him. You’ll never know what a relationship with God through Christ is like until you decide you want to know Him.

I want nothing more than for you to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This website, my writing, and any effort I give to pursue a ministry or public platform of any sort – it is all because I want you to know the truth. I am wholly dedicated to a lifetime of seeking God first because I want to know Him. And I want to share everything I learn about Him with you.

Jesus Christ is God. He lives, and He is love.

Intimacy with Christ is everything. It’s the main thing that really matters in life. Living with Him and for Him. Giving up your own life so that you can find real life – starting right now in this lifetime and continuing on forever in eternity. I would not be here right now, writing any of these words to you, if Jesus Christ were not really the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).

I love you, and I want so desperately for you to know God. I want so much for you to light up inside with passion and desire to seek Him with your entire being. I know that I cannot do this for you. It is only by God’s grace that I am even able to do this for myself. If you decide you want to know Him, and you seek Him with your whole heart, He will show up for you and save you.

You’ll never know what a relationship with God through Christ is like until you decide you want to know Him. Do you, or don’t you? Are you going to decide, or aren’t you? These questions I asked myself.

Please decide. And remember that not deciding is a decision.  

Jesus is God. He lives, and He is love. You will not be disappointed if you trust Him with everything. If you just start today, open the Bible, and find something you can understand. Start with scriptures that are clear and unchanging. That’s where I began.

I realize the foolishness of taking random scriptures out of context. But what I’m asking you to do is trust God when He makes bold promises. Look at some of the things the Bible says – I am listing just three of many verses below for you to read and consider.

“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8a).

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).

“I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me” (Proverbs 8:17).

Don’t you want to see if these things are true? You’ll never know unless you try. And you’ll never try unless you decide to commit and really do what He’s asking you to do.

The pursuit of God is more than worth it. Living with God and for God is life. If there is any way I can help you see, help you trust Him, help you genuinely decide you want to let go of whatever keeps you from giving your whole heart and soul to the pursuit of God – this is my heart for you.

I pray the words I write would move you to action, and that action in seeking God would lead you to peace. Peace with God. Peace in your heart. Forever.

I love you. Please consider what I am saying. It’s the truth.
