Sincere Excitement

Have you ever met someone famous or very important? There have been times in my life that I’ve had the opportunity to meet famous people. I'd end up becoming all excited just by being able to talk with them, and although these conversations are almost always brief, I’d think about this person for a good while after. It'd be days before I'd stop thinking about how cool it was to have met this person.

As Christians, we are blessed because we have a personal relationship with God, the most important person ever! There is nobody more important than God, yet many times we aren't excited about being with Him. The devil does a great job at distracting us with worldly things, but we must remember that God wants His believers to be full court followers, not full court fakers!

Another thing I would do when I’d meet someone famous or important, was go around telling everyone I knew that I had met this person. Since we know the most important person ever, we should be excited about sharing Him with others! Sadly, there are many Christians out there who have never shared Christ. You can’t experience the excitement that God has to offer if you don’t share Him!

Are you struggling to find excitement in your relationship with Christ? Are you at a point where you feel like you are faking your excitement? I encourage you to dig deep in His word, the Bible. Keep a prayer journal and then later on look back and see how God has been there for you. Pray to God and tell Him that you want to become more excited about spending time with Him. By doing these things, you'll find that your relationship with God will be filled with sincere excitement. After all, you're in a personal relationship with The One who made everything! What’s not to be excited about?

That is so true, and so sad. It encourages me to be more excited about being able to have a relationship with God. :-P
