Have you ever been stalked? I don’t think I have, but I suppose it would be hard to tell if the stalker was any good! Stalking is one of those creepy things where once you start talking about it, you imagine it’s always happening to you.
More people trying to follow Jesus should think about what stalkers do, but not for the reasons you might think at first. Because a lot of people stalk Jesus—they collect information and memorize things about God, without ever talking to God. They talk about knowing Jesus like they are best friends when actually, they really hardly knew each other at all. Because knowing facts about a person isn’t the same as having a relationship with a person.
BIG IDEA: The Purpose of Prayer is to surrender our will—not impose it.
