Hello,
I have a problem in my life. I want to know Christ more and spend more time praying and worshipping Him, but I just can’t seem to get excited about it. I see many people with amazing testimonies and story of how God dramatically changed their lives and they live out their lives in a godly way, and I feel like I need something like that to help me along my way to a more godly life. But I just can’t get myself excited to learn more about Him and spend time with Him. What should I do? And does everyone have that moment where God is revealed in perfect light, or only some people?
Thanks,
Tim

Hello Tim. I would talk with your pastor about this right away. Call him and schedule an appointment. How much do you read your Bible? Is it every day? If so, how much time? If not, why not? What about your prayer life? What amount of time do you spend in prayer? Does everyone have that moment where God is revealed in perfect light? No, that is not my experience. Job had a hard life, so did Paul, and Jesus most of all. You depend a lot on feelings it seems and that is subjective but the Word of God is objective truth. The times when you feel like not reading your Bible and praying the very most is the absolutely most crucial time that you need too.

Hello again,
I read my Bible occasionally, usually on Sundays. I read it for about a half hour when I do. I pray usually before meals and sometimes in the evenings, but I feel they are not adequate. Any advice on how can I make more time for God and make it better?
Thanks,
Tim

@Tim, I just wanted to say, I think it’s awesome that you desire to have a closer relationship with Christ! Don’t lose hope! Keep on reading your Bible and praying. Pour out your heart to God. He loves you! He hears your prayers. He will answer them in his own timing. God bless you!!

Hi Tim,

The things of God are usually boring to the natural man. I would like to know more about you and your experience with Jesus and what you believe. Things I would ask you are whether you believe Jesus is God. Do you believe He created all things including this natural universe in which we live and all things that exist both visible and invisible?

Do you believe that we are sinful human beings and headed for hell(damned) from the moment of conception? That the only hope for us escaping damnation is to believe in Jesus’s payment for our sins on the Cross..believing also that Jesus rose up from the grave. Then believing these things, have you asked God to fill you with His Holy Spirit?

Have you experienced the second birth of God’s filling you with His Presence in answer to your prayer? Without these necessary steps the Bible will still seem cold and boring, for the Word is opened to our understanding and speaks to us as we understand it through Jesus’s Spirit living inside of us.

Pray as we might, there is no hope without belief in Jesus. He loves you and wants you to grow in love for Him. Trust…belief comes first. All else is vanity and wind. All our efforts to get closer to Him are in vain. We cannot do it. That is why He offered His Son, that you might rest in His love and cease from your efforts to get close to Him outside of faith and trust.

Ray Comfort speaks of jumping from a plane. We might try it and want, hope and pray we might fly, but unless we have the parachute on we will perish. Same with Christ. He is our parachute. Trust in Him and then jump, resting in the knowledge that you are free in Christ. He will be close to you, for He will live inside you by His Spirit. He is not far away or distant for the believer. He knows you by name.(1 Cor 3:16).
