oh-noI am not a big fan of people who like to spread the word of God…Scratch that…I don’t mind talking about God, what I do mind is the ones who feel it is necessary to bug you in the grocery store. Come to you neighborhood and knock on your door. The ones who stop you at the park and bark at you if you turn and walk away, saying ugly, ugly things. These are the ones who know what God wants for you and come hell or high water they will let you know exactly what that is.
Now with that said, I am not opposed to people spreading the word but I do think they should at least be willing to tell the truth. The truth is not what that one person thinks the bible says about God. It is not about them telling you that if you don’t repent right here and now you are going to hell. No! That is not what it is about.
I am not a scholar on the bible, I do not claim to be in with the “Man up Stairs” but I do know in my heart that God will meet you where you are. He doesn’t want you to meet Him where He is. You don’t have to be a believer, go to church, read the bible any of that to just talk to God. God loves you know matter who you are, what you have done, who you marry, who you vote for. The relationship that you have with Him is up to you.
It is never going to be an easy relationship, and it shouldn’t be. If you step into this or any kind of relationship you know it will take work. You will get mad at God, that won’t bother Him. You will yell at Him, no problem. You may even stop talking to Him for a while…that is okay; He is a big boy and will be waiting when you are ready to talk again. All relationships require work, this one will too.
It is not easy to just give yourself up to someone totally in the first few minutes, hours, days, weeks, months…or yes years. This one may take a lifetime, so the ones who come and knock on your door, stop you in the store, or yell at you in the park don’t really know, in my opinion, what it is like to have a relationship with God. He doesn’t want you to scare a person into a relationship with Him…
He just wants to have a conversation with you, to let you know that in the end…Love Wins and He loves you. So now…How can I answer your questions?
