You are Invited

John the Baptist said:

“The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. ...” John 3:29

Today you are invited to consider how you feel when you hear the bridegroom’s voice. (John is referring to Jesus here – and the Bride is the Church which comprises all who follow Jesus). Does Jesus’ voice fill you with concern – or with joy? Are you far away from Him or are you following Him? Do you know He loves you more than you can ever imagine? How do you feel about trusting Him and letting Him be your Friend, your Lord and your Saviour? Open your heart to Him today, however you may feel about Him and invite Him to show you how He loves you as He longs to do. What do you want to say to Him in response?

May God bless you as you open yourself up to His love today – and may you feel His sweet presence in your life.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
