Having a relationship with Christ seems to be one of those things that is so simple, yet so hard. Granted, there are some things that aren't simple... they're just flat out hard. Being a martyr, that would be really hard. Losing some friends because you proclaim Christ as your savior, that would be hard. But how come some easy things are so hard? Reading scripture, spending time in prayer everyday, doing a devotional. How come those are so hard to do?
I'm convinced that we choose to make it hard. Seriously, what is so hard about praying everyday? That's one of those things you can do anytime during the day and it can last one second or one hour. Where's the hard part in that? For me, it definitely comes down to laziness and forgetfulness. It's not a good excuse by far, but I use it to justify all my failures.
What else could make this relationship so hard?
