Indeed, Jesus is like in the comic. He is just outside the door waiting for us to open it. He have all the power to crush the door but he would not force himself on us without us allowing him. A true gentlemen and a Gentle God.
Sigh. On a side note, Can you not just forgive but help someone who betrayed/had not been kind to you? I feel sorely human whenever I asked myself this qs. Honestly, I can't.
Sometimes it feels like all the hurt that was thrown at me was to make me understand God's amazing grace. Because He can do such amazingly godly and kind things as forgiving and waiting.
