When I was a child, Peanuts was a popular cartoon. The kid characters spoke clearly, but adults chattered in garble. On the show, children understood the adults–but no one watching knew what they were saying. Many people feel the same way about God. Many people think God only talks to “super-Christians”–or “people” with special connections. That is a lie from the devil!
God loves to talk with His Kids! The whole reason God created mankind was to have a relationship with a thinking and feeling friend. We are made for relationships–but the most important one is our relationship with God.
So, how do you get to know a friend? You talk with them, right? Friends are honest about their thoughts and feelings. Relating with God is the same way. He knows all about us, and He wants us to know all about Him. The best place to learn about God is the Bible–because the Word is Jesus.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
The more we know about God, the more exciting it is to talk with Him!
What keeps you from spending time talking with God?
