If you are a Christian you know that Jesus Christ came to earth to sacrifice Hmself for our sins.  The Bible teaches us

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

We also know:

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Rom 10:10

We know the gift is free.  We are connected to God if we accept through grace the gift….

So .. Why do Christians have such a hard time feeling close to God?  Why do we feel close sometimes and like God isn’t even there at others?….. 

There is a hard part… A commitment that God asks for.  Its worship.  And worship is not just going to church or participating in religious activity….  Its sacrifice.  God says that real sacrifice is worship through your lifestyle.

I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Rom 12:1

Here is the video of the teaching I did Sunday June 26 on this topic.
