Many people live their lives, in my opinion, in a casual and friendly relationship with Jesus, but how many know they can ask Jesus to draw them into something so special, so personal, so intimate that it goes deeper than anyone could expect?
I’m writing this out of experience as someone who knew the Lord for years as a casual Friend, but then He began drawing me a few years ago into a more intimate relationship that defied my deepest dreams and desires.
Jesus has indeed called me to teach and expose the deeds if darkness on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. Etc., (Ephesians 5:11)..but He opened His heart to me and revealed to me that His deepest desire, hunger and thirst was for our love for eachother to grow to that of knowing Him as a bride knows her groom *as in the Song of Solomon*, Psalm 45 and Hosea!
Once He drew me to know Him this way, I was not ever the same. I know Him intimately and the joy He and I share is uniquely ours and YOU can have intimacy with Him that goes beyond mere casual friendship! Just ask Him to draw you!
I agree with everything said here.
What makes us special is not the shape of the earth. What makes us special is that God became man, died for our sins and rose again. He is our great Hope, not the shape of the earth.
