//LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE//

For me I can tend
to make what being a Christian means overly complicated. I have a ton of
questions that I just don’t have answers to and I’ve come to
“somewhat” of a place of peace about the fact that I won’t have the
answers and that a lot of things are not going to make sense to me.
When I do this it pushes me further away
from my relationship with God because I get mad (like I have some right to
know. I crack myself up sometimes.)  None the less it’s a real thing I
deal with. It gives me uneasiness and fills my heart with doubt. Can anyone
relate?
I think it’s very important to study the
bible and to have knowledge of what the scriptures truly mean There are too
many people who just “believe” because it’s what they think they
should do or because their parents did or what not but OWN your faith. It will
change your life.
On that note, I also feel like simplicity
is beautiful. I was reminded of that this weekend, as my husband gets ready to
launch a new campus on the west side of town for our church. We’ve both gone back
and forth in our minds and hearts trying to search out the meaning of church.
What did Jesus want the church to look like and did we (the world) miss
the mark?  I know for both of us we came
to the conclusion that church (worship, teaching, serving and community) are important parts of
our walk but the focus should always be Jesus. 
I love the man in Matthew 22 who asks
Jesus what is the greatest commandment. I think him and I would have been
friends. Jesus responds with not one but two things. That in itself is pretty
important. 
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your
heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. ‘This is the
first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your
neighbor as yourself.’
Matthew 22:37-39
LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE
So when I find myself questioning and doubting I remind myself of this truth. LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE. Guess what my? My soul finds peace.
