It’s strange. I wrote this one post over a year ago called You Do It. It features an image Jesus in an Uncle Sam like pose saying I Want You. For some reason, it is consistently one of my most hit pages. I’m not sure why but as I began to think about it a few new thoughts came to mind, so I made a new graphic for a new post.
The original post was about how if you see something and think somebody should do something about it, chances are, somebody might be you, so “you do it.” Get the idea.
The real danger in a blog like this though is that it would become all about what you do. Needless to say there is more to a relationship, especially with God, than what we do.
First, He wants our obedience. He wants us to put Him first and follow Him even if everyone else goes in another direction. Following Him will not always be easy or popular but it is always right.
Secondly and maybe most importantly, more than anything else, Jesus wants to be in relationship with you. He wants that more than your gifts, more than your service, more than anything you can do for Him. He just wants you, all of you. He desires to spend time in your presence and He desires you to spend time in His. The bottom line is this. It’s not about what you can do for Him. He really needs nothing from you. He doesn’t need you or me at all, but don’t be upset, because while He doesn’t need you, He wants you, all of you. Obey Him, follow Him and, yes, serve Him but know this more than anything else, He wants you because He loves you!
Isn’t that cool!
