There are varying degrees of allowance given to people when it comes to having access to people in positions of authority. Imagine wanting to meet with the president of the country for something very important; you can imagine what it would cost you to get an appointment booked. Even if you are a professor in your field, it will take the pulling of a lot of Strings before you are finally granted access; if you are at all.
However, the president’s children don’t have to go through such protocol before they can see their father. And I can tell you for free that it feels good to know that you have free access to the really cool fellows.
There are definitely different levels of relationships. That’s why you call some people acquaintances and some others friends.
I remember reading an article a long time ago about what distinguishes a close friend from an acquaintance. One of the things mentioned was that when a close friend arrives at your home, he/she feels very free. He/she can go straight to the refrigerator to serve himself / herself. He/she can ransack your things and talk about virtually anything with you.
And who doesn’t like to feel really loved and accepted?
Why do you think people like to ‘famz’ with celebrities in whatever capacity?
There is that deep yearning in man to feel important and being in inner circles seems to validate that feeling.
However, we see people in the inner circles of several important personalities in the society who keep looking for more circles to join. But they are never satisfied. They keep seeking to be part of more circles where power is being commanded. Some people are willing to pay whatever price required to get them into those circles.
You see, it’s cool to be a part of the inner circles of the créme de la créme of the society but there is an inner circle that beats them all in worth and relevance.
It is Jesus’ inner circle.
Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of all lords. All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Jesus Christ; making Him the most powerful.
What then are you looking for trying to force yourself into circles that probably don’t want you in it?
Jesus’ circle is ever accommodating, it keeps expanding and can never become too big. And good thing is you don’t have to pay through your nose to belong.
To top it all up, in this circle is all the good stuff – joy, peace, fulfilment, and much more than you could ever imagine having for yourself.
I invite you to join Jesus’ inner circle today.
It is a rare privilege to be a part of the inner circle. In this circle, you have access to special teachings, directives, clarity, revelations, etc; just like the disciples experienced the ‘VIP’ tickets.
“And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.” Matthew 11:1 KJV
If you are part of this circle already, don’t trade your ticket for the counterfeit that the world offers. What the world offers is just but a mirage.
Jesus is the real deal!
