I grew up going to church, my Dad is a pastor so I always heard God talked about. Although, at some point you actually have to have your own relationship with God outside of what others tell you about Him. When you’re a kid, you’re told about God and Jesus and how wonderful they are, but you have to then have your own relationship with God. For example, if you have a grandparent that lives far away and your Mom always talks to you about how wonderful her mother is and how much she loves her and how great their relationship is. Does that mean that you have a relationship with your grandmother because your Mom has an amazing relationship with her? No, it doesn’t. You may be really excited to meet her one day and you may want a relationship with her, but you don’t have one yet. It’s the same thing with God, we have to make that transition from being told about how wonderful He is and how much He loves us to actually knowing that to be the truth for ourselves. And the only way to do that is to actually have a relationship with Him.
