I have had a VOID in my life since I can remember, about American Christianity, UNTIL TODAY. When JESUS walked this earth, the poor, sick and sinners ran to HIM as a SAFE PLACE and to HAVE WHAT JESUS HAS. I am grieved that only too often our Churches are not that place; I am grieved that others want to know CHRIST but do not see HIS likeness in those "called" by HIS NAME. I ask HIM to search my heart, show me myself and HIM through SPIRITUAL EYES. I ask HIM to make us attractive to those who want to know HIM, where we all share in a TASTE OF HIS HEART. I pray that we don't confuse "trying to be like CHRIST" with "letting CHRIST show HIMSELF" in our lives. Relying on our own efforts ends in SUPERFICIALITY AT BEST and HYPOCRISY AT WORST. Matthew 11:28, "Come to ME, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." If you can't stand the Christians you know or have heard about; I ask your forgiveness. And even if you don't like the Christians you know, I KNOW YOU WILL REALLY LIKE CHRIST!
