Over the last twenty four hours in your life how did your relationship with Jesus impact your life?Ok so as a christian who says that they love the Lord does this question seem attacking or judging to you?rdg
No, this question is not "judgmental." But it may be a "judgement," in the sense that it takes a "test" as it were. One reason it could be perceived as judgmental would be by someone whose first love has been left, or whose love has grown cold. In such a state one would respond to your question as being judgmental because they would not want to be asked that, as it would reveal the "coldness."I am only speaking from the abundance of my own heart...

I think it's a great question. Actually it might be one I ask myself everyday from now on.
very good question rdg!This is one of those questions that we should be considering over and over again to see what our relationship with the Lord is bringing to fruition.
Very good question!So many people "turn to God" because they aren't already steadfastly positioned and focused upon Him. For many, the Lord is a "last resort" or some varying level of "resort" when things go wrong.God should be our FIRST response. We should be focused upon Him when things go right, wrong and everything in-between. He should be the refuge that we run to in order to get away from all of the voices and distractions in this world.Thank you for the timely reminder, Rainy!
While not a bad question to consider, may I suggest that we should rather ask ourselves:In the last 24hrs how has my releationship with Jesus impacted OTHERS?I just finished listening to the audio version of George Mueller's life and that was the one thing that struck me the most(among others): He lived his life entirely for the benefit of others in the service of the Lord. Our culture is so ME-centred that even Christian's forget that it's not about us, and the work of the kingdom doesn't get done.So that would probably be my answer to the question you asked, and no, it doesn't feel judgmental to me.
According to me it is not about having relationship with Jesus in past 24 hours, it is about having relationship with him between every breath I take. It is a continuous relationship, hearing him, praying to him and rejoicing in him. John 13-23:-There was reclining on Jesus bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.John has this faith that Jesus loved him the most, so he was always fellowshiping with Jesus, resting on him with full confidence. I keep praying to him about my weakness to deliver me from them. I want to live a life completly resting in him for every single thing.
