God Running is a place for anyone who wants to (or even anyone who wants to want to) love Jesus more deeply, follow Jesus more closely, and love people the way Jesus wants us to.
Something I noticed about Jesus: He never treated a human being like an inconvenience.
Sometimes when I get busy, I treat human beings like inconveniences. I need to stop doing that. If you’re a Jesus follower, you need to stop doing that too. We need to stop doing that.
I know it’s short but this thought hit me so hard today, and this is such an important attribute of Jesus, I just want to leave it here — alone. Next week we’ll pick up where we left off in the book of Acts. If you need to catch up, you can check out our last post here: 10 Ways You Can Be With Jesus.
I had actually never noticed that,” Something I noticed about Jesus: He never treated a human being like an inconvenience.” 😍😍😍Thanks alot for sharing. I guess I need to relearn just how important humans are to God
Thanks for the comment Emilly and for your vulnerability.
You probably already know about how I did a seven year deep dive into studying how Jesus interacted with people. It resulted in my writing the book Love Like Jesus: How Jesus Loved People (and how you can love like Jesus). After seven years of looking at Christ’s life in the Gospels, I’m completely convinced that what God wants from us in this life, what defines a successful life according to God, what the meaning of life is during our time here on planet earth is love. Loving Jesus, loving God, with everything we have, and loving the people around us really well: that’s the whole thing. That’s the whole of scripture. (Matthew 22:36-40)
For me to live that way and to love that way, I definitely have to stop treating people like an inconvenience.
Thankyou so much for sharing, so very much.
