“Thomas said, “My Master! My God!” John 20:28
Thomas, though doubting at first, was drawn to the resurrected Jesus. Perhaps it is a little too much of a refined thought but he was drawn to Jesus not the miraculous resurrection of Jesus. The person is who Thomas sees. I can easily be enamored with what Jesus does and not so much in love with him. This affects my loyalty big time!
Beware of anything that competes with your loyalty to Jesus Christ. The greatest competitor of true devotion to Jesus is the service we do for Him. It is easier to serve than to pour out our lives completely for Him. – Oswald Chambers
Is this not true? Involvements but not intimacy is another way to say it.
Father, intimacy is to become my passion. Guard me against substituting intimacy with involvements. Help me become more focused on our relationship.
