Sunday morning, I took a trip. I wasn't expecting it, but smack in the middle of our worship time - Jesus took me on a little trip to some 24 years ago. It happened when we were singing Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, and we got to the second verse. I sang these words:
Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.And suddenly I was back in college - thinking I was "fine" - not knowing I was a lost little sheep in need of a Savior. I was never opposed to God or Christianity. Hey, I've attended church for as long as I can remember. I just didn't know there was such a thing as a personal relationship with Jesus. Frankly, I thought He had done what He needed to do, and now the world was left to fend for itself. So, there I was - a stranger, wandering from God, not realizing I should (or could) be doing anything differently. Until Jesus pursued me - very cleverly - helped me understand my need, and made me HIS. Every time I read a verse like Jeremiah 29:13, You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart, I thank God that He did not wait for me to seek Him. Because I honestly thought I was fine, and I don't know when I would have ever gone seeking after Him. Indeed, His grace is amazing. So, that's my story. How did you come into a relationship with God? OR, if you haven't begun that relationship, what is holding you back?
