God is not a checklist – points finger at self. It’s easy to slip into a lifestyle where we inadvertently make Him just that – especially if you’re a rule follower. Especially if you have the “this is what I’m supposed to do” mentality.
I repeat God is not:
Completing your bible study – check.
Paying your tithes – check.
Saying your prayers – check.
Attending Sunday School – check.
Posting a Bible verse on social media – check.
Attending a conference – check.
God is a relationship. God is a craving you have deep within your soul that can’t be – won’t be – satisfied unless you spend time with Him. Real time.
Time that you want to spend with Him. On purpose. Intentional.
God is your best friend. The one you just have to call. The one you have to tell your secrets and dreams to. God is your everything.
Be so in love with God that those things are just what you want to do. Not what you have to do.
Don’t let God become a checklist. Let God be the only thing on your list – and everything else will just fall into place.
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:16
