How Close?

March 19, 2012

She was following the bumper sticker.

Getting close enough to read it.

The bumper sticker, in its entirety: “Are You Following Jesus This Closely?”

My friend told me that last week at the end of a worship service last week

I agree with her assessment that it’s a darn good question, especially for this Season of the Gospel we call Lent.

How do you answer that bumper sticker’s question today?

Any changes you need to make?

    There are always changes I need to make. One time I was bold and conceited enough to say to God that I had pretty much most of my life surrender to Him. Boy, did that come back to bite me! I know now that so much of God I don’t understand, but I do know that He loves more than I can ever imagine. Daily I ask Him to show more of me that needs to change. Sometimes I don’t like the answers that I get. I pray that I am open to His ways and slowly I can become more like Jesus.


    • Janet—I’m laughing, but only because I know exactly and precisely what you’re talking about with our attitude of “Wow, God, aren’t you impressed with me?!” Thanks for this comment.—Joe.
