What often happens when we personalize our relationship with Jesus is that we end up privatizing it as well. Religion based on the relationship of "Me n' Jesus" results in a faith that is based on our individual feelings about faith and then church becomes an attempt to corporately pursue private relationships with Christ. But really, the most personal Jesus we can have is the One who comes to us from outside of us, whose Word is preached into our ears and Whose body and blood is placed into our mouths to give us forgiveness for our sins, eternal life, and salvation.
