Is God the initiator?

The sentence that really stands out for me today is, “Jesus Christ was transformed into our image so that we might be transformed into His.’

I believe that we are created to enter into a perfect and eternal relationship with Jesus – of which the greatest aspect is that we can respond to His call, to follow Him, here – in this life, and He provides everything to enable us to reach out and take His hand as we stumble along in this fallen world. Today’s devotion is packed with richness – was there a specific point which spoke to you?

The prayer Selwyn provides for those who seek to enter into this relationship, bears repeating here:-

“Lord Jesus Christ, please forgive my sin and make me Your child. As I reach up to You I know You are reaching down to me. I receive You now as my Lord and Saviour. Amen. “
