Do you think you are close to Jesus?

Yes I believe I am close to Jesus. Whenever I am in an emergency I call out on His name and I am delivered. He makes me cry everytime I worship Him. I cry whenever I remember my shortcomings and Jesus remain faithful despite my shortcomings. I am not a perfect christian but I believe I am close to the Lord.

Jesus said that if we are His followers, He will be with us alway. He also said that His followers are in Him and He in them. I believe that I have a personal relationship with god and that Because He is in me I am in Him. He is close so I am close to Him. I know that some times we feel veery far from Him, especialy if it feels as if our lives are falling apart. We sometimes feel that our sins are driving us far from Him. Fortuanately He is alway just a prayer away, and He is always waiting. When our relationship is restored we know that we are close to him again. Happy walking with Jesus. Blessings

Hi MyzDy19! How I wish I could say that. Though I regularly read the bible and pray every day, I still could feel the emptiness inside my heart. I have felt this when my faith slowly drifted away, and started attending worship services and fellowship with fellow believers. But I'm very optimistic that one day I would feel once again the warm presence and leading of the Holy Spirit in my life. I've just got to continue to seek God and follow His will in my life. God Bless!

I don't think so, no. He is far better than me. I am just a sinner hoping that when my time comes He will let me come a little closer. I don't pray everyday anymore and I don't go to church for years now, since I was kicked out of the church about 15 years ago. They can kick me out, but my believe is stronger than before. I have become more realistic and understand things better. "The first will become last and the last will be first", is one thing I understand very well now. I don't pray everyday because I know He already knows what I need and if I am truly grateful or not. I can pray and say thank-you, but if you don't mean it He will now. I talk to Him in my own way. He knows me better than anyone or anything. He understands. How about you, are you close to Him? Take care.

Sorry about that, here it is again. Well I read my bible after I had been baptized. Where it said: If you don't have Love you have nothing. I knew for a long time my marriage was not good. I had been mentally abused by my husband and for the kids he was to hard. After being baptized it was like I had been more aware of what I had to do. It was time to leave my husband. And I did. I had prayed and read my bible and came to the conclusion I had been given the green light, so to speak. It was time to go. The church people could not accept this. But, they did not know what was going on at home. They all thought we were the perfect couple. In those days I always did what I was told, the role model wife. But now I was through with being told what to do and when. I was through having "S" because he wanted it and throwing up after wards while he was asleep. I was through seeing myself as his slave. I beleive God woke me up and gave me permission to leave. I did, and the church said if I did not go for therapy with my husband I was no longer a member of that church. So to make a long story short, I had made up my mind and I left. It has been 15 years ago, and I have never regretted my decision. Take care.

Close to Jesus? Umm...probably. I'd like to imagine myself having a real intimacy with Him. When Jesus and I surf the Net, we seldom talk verbally, but we laugh together and often have the same opinions about stuffs we see there. Another thing...when we workout a sweat, we enjoy the deep breathing part. And we watch TV sometimes. Yeah, I think I wanna imagine myself as close to Jesus.
