Mt 7:22-23 “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
No. We need to have Jesus as a close friend!
I have the feeling that lots of Christians leave meet Jesus once a week in church.
Jesus should be our best friend. Afterall, He knows us better than anyone else.
As we grow closer to Him, He comes closer to us. He will guide us and comfort us during difficult times.
He can sympathize with us, because He knows what suffering is.
He understand our troubles, our grief and our pain.
I praise God for Jesus who makes such a difference in this dark, short-lived world.
Please add your comments to this thought at the bottom of this post so others can be blessed through your words also.
You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.
Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.
So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?
Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
