A Personal Relationship

     Last night I met with Matthew. He grew up Catholic, as I did, so we had an instant connection.  He started sharing about his struggle to understand that just knowing about Jesus in our head was not the way to get to Heaven. I had this exact same struggle when I was younger.
     We were able to look at Scriptures together, and the Holy Spirit turned on the light for him.  As we read through John, Matthew realized that in John 1:12, 3:16, 5:24, and 14:6, Jesus was talking about having a personal relationship with the Father, one made possible through His death on the cross. Matthew came to know Jesus last night!
     Now he is a forgiven sinner, a new creation, and a new member in the greatest family on earth--OUR Family-- the Family of our Lord God.
