So, I’ve always wondered about this. But I’ve never verbalized it.
Christians tend to put a lot of emphasis on a “personal” relationship” with Jesus Christ.
So, I feel like whenever I see Jesus face to face, after all this time I’ve spent talking to Him daily, that I will want some one-on-one time with Him…….
Will I be satisfied with just being one insignificant person out of the whole throng who will be worshipping at His feet? I know this is a very “selfish” thought and that many will say I have my priorities all wrong. Will I feel like a silly kid at a Justin Bieber concert, fighting my way to the front of the crowd, just to get as close as possible to Him?
You know the story of Mary and Martha, where Martha is chastised because she hasn’t taken the time to visit with Jesus? Well, wouldn’t it have made Mary’s time with Jesus less special if Martha had been there too?
I know that this is all way beyond our comprehension, how “heaven” will all play out….but I do tend to forget that if I’m expecting to go to heaven, shouldn’t I expect others to be there as well? Will I be upset if Sister so-in-so gets a front row seat, and it seems as if Jesus doesn’t REALLY know who I am, even though I’ve loved Him for all these years?
