Many times we meet people who say they are Christians, but don’t really walk the walk. They do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Sadly, these are some of the very people Jesus will deny. Matthew 7:21-23 says:

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (NKJV)

So, what is it really like to have a relationship with our Savior? You should always talk to God as your father, and your best friend. You cannot rely on others for help or happiness. Only God can give you happiness.

Personally, having God as my best friend and father is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I know I can tell Him anything, and He always listens. When I ask for something, He follows through, even if the results do not come out exactly how I expect. No matter what happens, God always has my back and loves me unconditionally. In the end, a relationship with Jesus is one of true friendship and trust.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 (ESV)
