What Would Jesus Say To Caitlyn Jenner: I Am Pursuing You
Matthew 18:12-13 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
Do you feel distant from God or neglected by him? Does your soul feel distracted, lethargic, and listless? Have you been skipping the time you used to spend with God – whether it’s in personal worship or gathering with other believers at church?
It's easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and forget about our relationship with God. But the good news is that God is always pursuing us, even when we wander away from him.
Just like the shepherd in the parable of the lost sheep, God is constantly seeking after us, leaving the 99 to find the one who has strayed. He doesn't condemn us for our mistakes, but rather, he joyfully carries us on his shoulders and brings us back home to him.
So, if you're feeling distant from God, know that he is still pursuing you. It's never too late to turn back and rekindle your relationship with him. Spend time in prayer, read His Word, and worship him with all your heart. He's waiting for you with open arms.
Take time today to reflect on your relationship with God. Have you been neglecting him? What is something you can change in the next few days to make time to invest in your relationship with him?
Father, thank you for always pursuing me, even when I wander away from you. Help me to draw closer to you and rekindle my passion for you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
