Most Christians have heard numerous sermons discussing the importance of having a relationship with Christ, but what does that really mean? We accept God’s love, openly profess our faith, and follow the beliefs of our church. But how many of us really take time to genuinely know the God who loves us?We all want to build a real relationship with Christ, but for many words like discipline, obedience, and holiness stir up feelings of guilt and frustration associated with our failure to successfully practice these in the past. Christ wants us to know Him. But He doesn’t want us to spend time with Him out of guilt or duty. He wants us to fall in love with Him--so much so that thoughts of Him are with us wherever we go. He wants to rendezvous with us wherever we are. He’s waiting for us to see the everyday moments of our lives as opportunities to have sacred encounters with Him.Rendezvous: A Sacred Encounter with God opens the door to having a new connection with Christ and presents ways to turn our spiritual routine into a sacred romance with the One who loves us most.
