We cannot base our relationship with Christ on what other Godly influences in our lives have possessed. While we are thankful for them, their relationships will not work in place of a personal relationship with Him ourselves.
Time is a valuable resource in our culture. What we do with this temporal commodity results in eternal difference. I'm convicted to spend more personal time with HIM. HE makes the eternal difference in our lives everyday.
"And He walks with me, and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own . . ."
