I’m almost finished with the book and the 21 day fast!! The book The Shack is mind opening. Here is my take from it the first time of reading.
Jesus doesn’t want me to be like Him. He doesn’t want any of us to be like Him. He was Him and that’s the only Jesus we will need…EVER! With that truth, I have to be V Faith because I am the only one in the world! Being me to the fullest is what will bring God glory.
Jesus doesn’t want us to follow Him, not like we are fans who don’t know Him intimately. Instead He wants to lead us into a relationship with Him like the one He has with His Father and the Holy Spirit.
As I hang around Jesus, I will be like Jesus. Remember, what I am around I will become like. Yes, I will follow Jesus, for He as done many things and I want to learn from Him. Then I will look like Jesus, but so others can see Him.
My focus is my relationship with this Supreme Being. I love to live in His love. I have a purpose in my identity as a daughter of Father God.
You dear reader are the only you on this earth. You are completed through your relationship with Jesus. Get married to Jesus! It’s the only relationship in this world that will satisfy! God bless you.
