In this episode, I may or may not share a story of a practical joke Jesus played on me some years ago...and it may or may not be embarrassing. It involves sap, shaving cream, and the mountains of Virginia. Also, we explore the humanity of Jesus and how He deeply enjoyed His time with His disciples and friends. Be equipped to enjoy a real friendship with God, where you can talk about anything and everything, or just enjoy each other's company in silence.
1. Give Jesus permission to be Himself with you. Pray something like, "Jesus, I give you permission to be Yourself around me."
2. Give yourself to be yourself around Him. Consider saying this out loud: "I give myself permission to be me around Jesus."
3. Find some time where you can talk about something that's not deep with Him. A hobby you're really enjoying, a tv show you love, a book you're enjoying...whatever it is, keep it normal and friendly!
