How do we return? With the New Year and all, I thought about how to return to God. I didn't leave, but I could be closer to Him. So what do I need to do to return to God?
1. I need more quiet time.
2. I need more obedience to His commands.
3. I need LESS me and MORE of Him.
4. I need to Love other people.
We are all in the same boat together. We need to remember that none of us are God, and that one day we will all be on our knees side by side. So all those jokes about . . . If that guy is going to be in heaven I don't want to go. They aren't even close to how it's going to be. We are going to be so awestruck that we are not even going to notice the mook next to us. God is so amazing and fabulous, words cannot describe. I really doubt we will care about golden streets, mansions or our neighbors.
We should take that advice while we are here, and stop worrying about if we are better than the person sitting next to us on the pew, or in line behind us in the grocery store and just love each other, because in the end . . . none of us are great.
So all next week I am going to be discussing Nehemiah's plan to making a New Year's Resolution work. Tune in tomorrow to see how he did it!
