Wikipedia describes stalking as “obsessively following or constantly observing another person.” I wonder how often I do this in my Christian walk. Do I really walk with Jesus or am I just a Jesus Stalker? What I mean by this is do I just like the idea of Jesus, the look of Him, the life He lived, or am I actually spending time with Him, getting to know Him, talking and walking with Him daily?

I was reading my friend Chris Whitler’s blog today and he was writing about the Bible. He was encouraging people to spend time reading it, and pointing out how easy and non time consuming it can be. As I was reading I thought about all the bibles on my shelf. All those black leather books that just make me look good and collect dust. I won’t even put anything on the bible as I see it as an important book. It is not God, it just is the inspired, written down word of God. Then I thought about how often I actually read the Bible. I try to read it daily, but to no avail. I think I am a bible stalker in some way’s. I have one, I keep it on my shelf next to my bed, I dust it off and I make sure no one else ruins it or bends the page, but do I truly engage it? Do I spend time in it regularly getting to know what it say’s and letting it speak to me? I wonder. I hope my time here in Kona will push me towards it more. It is a living word and I need it.
