I’m only talking to Jesus today. Phil 7:6
Don’t bother trying to look up this verse, turns out it doesn’t exist. I saw it on a shirt worn by a lady I encountered a some days ago. I admit, I was a bit curious about what translation of the Bible this was. Knowing, but still needing to confirm that Philippians has only 4 chapters, I attempted to look up the verse.
True to her shirt, this lady did not seem to want to talk to anyone, even those whom were attempting to assist her.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12 KJV
It pains me to my core that it seems as though we are seeing love wax cold before our very eyes.
“To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.”” 1 Peter 2:21-22 NIV
I had a conversation with someone about Jesus. Someone who is a believer, a Christian. They stated that they believed that Jesus had so many women crying at the foot of the cross because, the women knew that they would never get another chance to be (intimate) with Him again.
To be honest, I thought it was a very poor and tasteless joke. I was dumbfounded.
When I realized that it wasn’t and recovered my words. I responded, Jesus was without sin. The response I received was, How is that a sin? My response, Jesus wasn’t married. Again, How is that a sin?
It amazes me that Christians of today no longer see sin as sin. Even to the extent of tarnishing Jesus Christ’s own reputation and name. Granted I know and understand that no, we can’t tarnish His name and reputation. But, you understand what I’m saying, right?
As a parent, although my children are teens, one is almost 18, I’m still aware of what they are being fed through their eyes and ears. I do my best to ensure that they are being brought up with truth and a firm foundation. I try to cultivate the best possible environment for them to develop and maintain and grow in their own personal relationships with Jesus. In today’s world, it’s vital.

Vital indeed! Yes, it saddens me as well, to see how “Christians,” don’t know what a true relationship with Jesus, looks like!
