Is it too much to want a group of believers surrounding you?
People you can call on for prayer.
People you can worship with, laugh with, share your heart with–
People who will listen when you speak and truly care…
But will care about Jesus and your relationship status with Him even more.
Is it wrong to expect more out of the ones closest to you than the time of day?
Or the weather.
Or their latest day-to-day routine.
Work. School. Whatever. Does it really matter?
There’s a place and a time for chit-chat, I know, but shouldn’t it weigh in at 10% to 90 of Christ and Him crucified instead of the other way around? Shouldn’t His affect on our life be the next big thing? Shouldn’t “our” lives be only tinged with stories of ourselves and painted over with tales of His work in us instead?
After all, we are no longer our own. We were bought with a price.
So shouldn’t we live like it?
