“Now Go Away!”

“We love you Jesus. Now leave us alone!”

While that phrase may seem harsh in it’s treatment of Jesus, I believe it is a good representation of what many (if not most) of those who call Him “Lord” say with the way they live their lives. We cry His name in times of trouble, and quickly push Him away when we feel we don’t need Him. All the while, we cry that we feel “so far away” from God. If you find the same thread in all of my writings, I pray it is this: As Christians, what we do and say should mirror each other, and WE should each do our best to mirror Jesus to a lost world. If one of my children was to tell me he loved me, give me a goodnight kiss, and then promptly sneak out the window and rob a bank after I fell asleep, his actions would deny his words. Loving the authorities over you means obeying them relentlessly. Loving Jesus means exactly the same thing.

Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching.” These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. Jesus of Nazareth (John 14:23-24)

In Christ,

For years now I’ve been learning a little more about Jesus each and every day. I suppose I’ve learned more than the average person, but surely I’ll not understand all of His teachings while I’m in th
