I found yesterday’s blog post very challenging. Go read it. It’s fairly short. Then come back for a moment.
Shane posed a question something like this: are we chasing something that looks like God (or remind us of God), or are we chasing God Himself? Are we more interested in the blessings of God or in Godly things than we are in pursuing our relationship with God?
Wow. This summed up something I’ve been realizing about myself lately. I put far more energy into my church than I do into my relationship with God.
Just like the picture above. Are we pursuing a relationship with the One who died on the Cross, or we spending all of our time in the shadow of the Cross?
I need to work hard on that. Do you?
