“Does she make me want to know Jesus more?”
It was a question in a comment on a recent blog post about friendships. And I wondered– Do I make people want to know Jesus more?
It's been the question rolling around in my brain and my heart for days. With only a little over three months until God, Grace and Girlfriends releases, girlfriend relationships are at the forefront of my thoughts. I'm excited and thrilled, but above all I want this book to glorify Jesus — because without His amazing love and grace and incredible blessings it would never have made it out of my heart and onto the page.
I want the people in my life to want to know Jesus more. I want it for my family and for my friends. But does my life make them want to know Jesus more? Do I challenge people to set out in faith or do I encourage them to stay inside their comfort zone?
Do I stand up and shout when a friend makes a leap of faith even when it doesn't look like the leap I'd make?
Do I encourage the people in my life to trust God more and the world less?
What is it about a person that makes you want more Jesus? What attributes encourage, challenge and inspire you?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
