It’s great to be a Christian! Not only do we get to go to heaven when we die, but we get all this stuff, too! We get our own special music and jewelry and books. We get weekly concerts with cool graphics and video (although sometimes these are kind of lame). We even get our own special “secret” language. I’m telling you this whole Christian thing has some seriously cool perks, even our very own “Get Out of Jail Free Card!” What? You haven’t heard of it? Oh, you do NOT know what you’re missing out on!
If you want a deeper relationship with God, it starts with you. God has already done the hard work. You’re going to heaven. Now the response is up to you. Get out of the boat, fix your eyes on God, and walk on water. Spend time in the Word and with God and become like Him. Cultivate peace, patience, gentleness, meekness, kindness and self-control in your life. Be disciplined and be discipled by the Son of God.
