Hope, who was devoted to USO work, took time to greet our group because we were military wives.
We were awed by his kindness, but it made me wonder how we’d have responded if Christ had physically stopped by. Would He be like Bob Hope, someone we recognized, someone whose reputation we knew, but still a stranger to us personally?
We talk about “relationship, not religion,” but what does that truly mean to us?
- Is Christ an acquaintance or a close confidant?
- Do we know about Him or do we know Him?
- Are we doing deliberate things to get to know Him better?
We were awed that a celebrity had given us 5 minutes, but the King of the Universe wants to know us and He’s always available! Wow!
