Jesus is still in the business of changing lives as people cry out to him for help. Because Jesus, as God’s Son, is both human and divine, he is the only being in the universe capable of bridging the vast abyss between sinful humans and a holy God.
At the heart of every life, including yours and mine, is a choice. Will we keep doing things our way, calling all the shots and living as though we are in control, or will we cry out to Jesus, asking him to come into our lives and show us the way to live?
Because Jesus desires our love, he will never force us to come to him. He knows that love is only love if it is freely given. So he invites us into an intimate relationship with himself and then leaves the choice to us. We can either refuse that relationship or accept it.
