The Challenge

Now is the time…

We never know what will happen tomorrow. If you have walked or drifted away from your faith or relationship with Jesus Christ, now is the time to ask yourself, “Why?”

Did someone in the church hurt you? Did something bad happen in your life that you struggle to make sense of? What was it that caused the distance that exists in your heart?

Have you ever asked God why you aren’t close with Him now? Have you studied what He says in the Bible about wanting a relationship with you? Did you know the Bible says that God is pursuing you? He desires a relationship with you. He created you. He knows you more than you know yourself. And He is pursuing you, as He has been pursuing all of humanity since the beginning.

Psalms 23:6 (NLT)

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life.”

Life can be very hard. It is not fair, and it leaves a hole and an emptiness in our hearts that can only be filled by a restored relationship to God through His son Jesus Christ. “Selah” on that thought. God may be in the act of leading you to Himself right now, and unless you pause, think about that, and choose to act upon it, your life will continue on as it has been.

Revelation 3:20 (NIV)

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in …”

In John 14:6 Jesus said:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
