Walk with Jesus

the natural pattern of God’s favor

There’s something beautiful about the Way God communicates. He’s active and responsive, not passive and stagnant, and that’s just one of the things that I love about Him. He’s just as invested in my life on this earth as I am, and rather than making it seem like life is the prerequisite to eternity, He asks us to live into this life as a vessel for eternity to invade earth, and to invite even more to the party.

One of the greatest misconceptions about Christianity, as a whole, is that we live in a world of regime and discipline, not allowed to make and create our own decisions. And for a large part, I can see why- conversations with God at the center of them in the public eye routinely make it seem like we are under a dictatorship, rather than active in a relationship.
