The Idea of God

We love the idea of Jesus. Think about it.

There is a God who loves us, He cares for us, lived for us, died for us, and is always ready to welcome us into His arms.

Who wouldn’t love this God – after all it doesn’t get much better then that! Not to mention the forgiveness of sins!!

This idea of God is like taking a Oreo and licking out the cream because that’s the part we  like the best. We forget that this same God is the God that calls us to follow Him (sometimes to places we don’t want to go), to put our faith and trust in Him. To step out the boat and walk on the water. The God that says leave all to follow me…..

To often we love the idea of God more than God.

….. but its a whole package deal we don’t get to pick and choose the parts we like.

Oreo’s anybody?
