It's been quite blustery outside in our region. One friend on Facebook said she really racked up the floors on her Fitbit just walking outside in the wind. I suppose a wind tunnel sort of workout would be a very challenging workout.Spring will be here soon beckoning us to workout outdoors. My bike looks a bit sad sitting on the bike trainer in our spare room. It's whining at me, "I want to ride the trails." I can't wait, can you?
There are a few things that really frustrate me, but one at the top of my list: Christians and seekers who leave the church because of Church People. Yes, I was a bit tough in my last blog post, "Is Jesus Enough?" We all are a work in progress I'm sure. Younger, less seasoned Christians and those who don't know Jesus as Savior often have not experienced the character of God on a deep personal level. We are the representation of Jesus in this world. if you've been hurt by church people, you are in good company. Countless others like myself have, but we've also experienced an intimate relationship with God through Jesus that is so amazing! If it weren't for God's activity in my life, I would have left church a long time ago. Even though there are hurting, imperfect people in churches, we are called to actively participate in worship, fellowship, evangelism, and discipleship in a Bible-based Christian church. Look to Jesus, not people. Who is He? What does He want from you? How does He tell you life is best lived for God? He has a place for you in eternity, if you are willing to accept His free gift of salvation. Not only that, He loves you very much!
