A Journey to Intimacy with God

By Terry Wardle

May 3, 2012

There is a pathway to the Lord’s embrace that can be found by everyone who names Jesus Christ as Lord. Experiencing God is not limited to spiritual superstars, but is instead a possibility for every child of God. Like all relationships this intimacy takes time and involves deepening levels of trust and vulnerability.

God did not intend for His children to have a passionless relationship with Him. Respect, honor, loyalty, and obedience are important. But God is a loving Father who desires to lavish love upon His own. He wants to move Christians beyond relational immaturity, into a level of intimacy that is literally transforming. He wants to replace emptiness with the fullness of His love, sadness with deep joy, and loneliness with the abiding confidence that He is ever present with those He loves. Nowhere is this more clearly communicated than through the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
