Shallow Christianity

That phrase has remained lodged in my brain ever since. I think it’s easy to be shallow in our relationship with God and not even realize it. Our prayer life grows faint and spiritual hunger barely exists. Yet, nobody knows. God knows. We know, but nobody else does.

Imagine standing before God's throne in eternity and suddenly realizing that you had a lifetime on earth to draw near (James 4:8) to Him, but didn’t. Ugh. That thought kills me. When we signed up to follow Jesus, we knew that it meant our whole lives surrendered to Him. Thus, “shallow” isn’t an option. We have to go as deep in God as we can. It’s our mandate, our invitation, and our greatest opportunity.
