Recently, I was speaking to a friend about someone. They asked me if this person loved Jesus. I said yes, they do love Him, but they are not quite living for Him yet. There is a difference. It is easy to fall into the space where we genuinely have affection for God, but separate our lives from Him. It is easy to report to Him but have no intimate communion with Him. It is far too easy to exist parallel to Him, instead of be led by Him. In this essay, we start to look at the essence of those differences.
