God likes you


We live in a world where most people are clueless about God. I say “most people” because I mean it. Even Christians.

For years I claimed to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But in many ways I didn’t. I had a formal relationship with Him. I needed to pray a certain way and follow certain rituals to make Him happy. I needed to perform.

And then I learned something that I never imagined before: God likes me. I already knew that God loved me. That was part of His job description. He was stuck loving me whether He wanted to or not. God’s castor oil—loving Dwight Clough. But God likes me?! Wow! He likes hanging out with me? I don’t need to do anything; He just likes being with me?

I gotta say that changed my life. My favorite thing to do? Hang out with God. I don’t know how to pray. Compared to some people (you maybe), I’m not any good at praying. But I don’t need to be good at praying to hang out with God. All I need to do is open the door and invite Him in.

Is God good? The God I hang out with sure is. He’s the One I want to share with my world. More in a couple days.

Question: What’s it like for you when you hang out with God?

Bible trivia:
Answer from last time: Xerxes (or Ahasuerus)
New question: After Job’s three friends finished talking, one more man spoke to Job. What was his name?
