“My Concern Is That I Haven’t Been Born Again… I’m Afraid.”
A listener writes:
“Hi Troy. I’m interested in knowing how one takes hold of Christ in the heart in a way that transforms. I’ve been stuck in this place for a long time, wanting the ‘penny to drop’, but that hasn’t happened. I don’t have intellectual problems with the Bible….it’s that my heart hasn’t been melted in a way that results in joy, peace and a change of nature. I’m not looking for an experience, but a genuine heart change and I don’t think it’s happened….I think I’d know if it had. I know all ABOUT God, but can’t seem to connect with Him, personally. I long to have a personal relationship with Jesus, but never have and it’s way past time. He seems abstract and distant to me and I know that’s not right because He is, in reality, neither of those.”
The full letter, along with the response from the show, is shared during this episode. The concerned listener also wrote, “I can’t imagine that I’m the only one having problems with this.” She’s correct. So, it is our hope that this show will be helpful to you, as well as to her.
There is no panel for this particular show as Troy Skinner (930 WFMD Host/Moderator of The Faith Debate) flies solo for the week. Incidentally, there is a video link mentioned during the show. Click here for that link.
