I woke up in bed around 2 a.m. this morning. In the dark stillness, my mind was drawn immediately to Jesus. I started thinking that here's someone I've never met in person and was here on earth some 2,000 years ago, in a region far away from where I reside now; yet, among all the people I know, he is the one closest to my heart and most intimate to my soul. I don't believe this kind of relationship exists in any other religion. I wasn't ever brain-washed, nor was I under any kind of spell. No one has pressured me into this relationship, which I am free to sever anytime I wish. And I am not alone, knowing that there are many, many others feeling the same way. The only conclusion I could come to is that I have encountered the True God in Jesus.
