How Does God Touch Your Heart?

We all would like to think that we are special in some way before God. We want to be sure of His love for us and His guiding hand in our lives. For most of us, being special translates into a feeling – an emotional response that produces a sense of security. But is that all there is to being special? For the Christian at least there is much more to it. We know that everyone is not called to follow Jesus and we also know that according to the Bible, God does specifically call some to follow. How does this work? How does God get your attention and touch your heart and mind? What makes us want to respond to God and what might make us shy away from responding to Him? Is it easy to recognize when God is seeking us out and trying to touch our hearts?

If Jesus Knocked, Would You Answer?

This is one of those “what if” questions.  It’s a question that you ask for the purpose of getting someone to think and not because you expect the situation to actually take place.  What if Jesus came to your house – today – right now?  What would you do?  What wouldn’t you do?  How would you act?  How wouldn’t you act? What would you hide? What would you display?  Would you want your friends to stop in, or would you prefer they stay away?  Would you need to be on guard with your words, or would you not worry?  Would Jesus’ presence make you happy and excited or uneasy and defensive?  This podcast entertains the question – not because we expect him to show up at your door - but because it makes us examine who we are.  If Jesus knocked, would you answer?
