Everyday Real God
I was born in 1967 and I came to know the realness of Jesus when I was seven in 1974. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. My Aunt Ginger explained how Jesus is God, and there was a way to have a relationship with Him. I was so in. I could talk to God and He would listen and then get back to me.
I don’t recall Ginger giving me a list of “you should” and “you should not” commands. It was helping me learn and receive the grace of God and His “I will never leave you,” unconditional love that gave me the choice to want to follow Him, do what He asked and trust in what He promised. I don’t just talk to God, I hear Him. He knows me and I know Him. Ginger showed me how silly, fun and ridiculously crazy good that having a relationship with Jesus is, too.
I am still incredulous that it’s nothing we do to earn God’s love and nothing we do could take away His love…everyday.
