Love Like Jesus is due to be published later this year. If you’re interested in serving as a beta reader send me an email at kurt@kurtbennettbooks.com.

Feelings

Jesus is worthy to receive honor and glory and praise, whether I feel like it or not. He alone is your God, the only one who is worthy of your praise. (Deuteronomy 10:21 NLT) He is worthy.

Relationship with Jesus is not about how I feel. It’s about who He is.

Singing to Him or about Him, reading His word, praying, visiting Him at His house, everything we do toward building a relationship with Him, is about Him, not me, not you.

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”

Revelation 5:12

Relationship with Jesus is not about how I feel.

It’s about who He is.
