A soldier entered the cashier's office and wanted to cash his government paycheck. The cashier asked, "Do you have an ID and someone to vouch for you?"

The soldier answered, "I have an ID, but I have no friends here......I'm the camp's BUGLER!"

Rom 5:7-11
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
KJV

God wants to be your FRIEND! He's so desirous of that friendship, He was willing to DIE for you even when you were an ENEMY!

Do you remember the story of the Garden of Eden? There were no rituals, ceremonies or religion. There was only a couple loving God and God came to walk with them every day. There was no guilty fear, and no unrealness to the relationship Adam & Eve had with God. Everything was good until Adam and Eve SINNED!

But even in their sinful condition, God came TO them. He called them to Himself for repentance, and He reconciled them to Himself via sacrifice. That is STILL God's plan for all mankind today!

He CAME! He came in the Person of Jesus Christ.
He CALLS! He calls through the Bible and saved people today.
He is willing to RECONCILE! He has paid the price at Calvary & is ready to apply that payment to all who surrender to Christ as Lord.
He gives JOY! There is a joy in walking with God every day that cannot be explained!
And He SAVES! The salvation that God offers is for ETERNITY!

God wants a friendship with you that's based on His REPAIRED RELATIONSHIP!
Friendship with God is sharing all your life with Him. God wants MORE than just a devotional time. He wants to be included in all you do....your joys and your problems.

Today, begin to maintain a constant conversation with God. Live in that newness of life which is a result of His repaird relationship. Share your disappointments, frustrations, fears, joys, happiness -- EVERYTHING with Him.

Being in constant conversation with God is a skill you can develop.
Begin today.

Love ya,
