Is God a stranger to you?

These are the opening remarks to an article by John Gray: Think on these things:

“Many Christians grow up in church but never grow in Christ!”.  “They know hymns but don't know "Him". 

 Do they describe you?

I have cut his article down to these last two paragraphs. For me, they are really the meat of the article.

 “Growing in faith requires both time and effort. God ultimately causes the growth, yet He expects us to follow His ways and seek to grow, becoming mature followers of Jesus who can help make disciples of others --- “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations….” (Mat 28:19); “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2Ti 2:2).”

“Is your rate of spiritual growth pleasing to God or are you still an infant in Christ? Are you pleasing God or is He a stranger to you?”

His final two questions require some thought and soul searching. We need to be honest with ourselves!
