Next Step

Pastor asked a question on Wednesday..."What would it take to get you to move to the next level of intimacy with Jesus?" Perfectly legitimate that maybe most could even answer. I, however, sat in my seat dumbfounded. The next level? There was a time in the beginning of my relationship with the Lord when I knew I was drawing closer and my walk was strengthening but now... well now, I just don't know. I'm not living in habitual sin. I go to church. I think for the most part I practice what I believe. On the outside it would appear that I'm living "a good" christian life. But, what is the next level? How do I get there? How do I even begin to advance to the next level? Does that makes sense? I'm not lost but I'm not on fire. I'm (gulp) lukewarm. There I said it. I'm lukewarm and I have no idea how to stay hot all the time? I have know idea what the next level of intimacy with Jesus is and it makes me sad. Almost, makes me wish I had some sin I could give up...not really but you know what I mean! Sigh, this question has been plaguing me for days now and I still have no answers.... hmmm, tomorrow is church! Praise God! Maybe the answer will arrive soon. Jesus, I need to know what the next step for us is in our relationship. I don't want to be lukewarm, You have warned against that in Your Precious Word. I'm waiting for Your answer Lord. Eagerly. Show me Lord. Teach me. I love you, Amen. Joyfully, Kathy
