The Road to Intimacy – Part 4
Faith leads us to intimacy with God.
God has made a way for all of us to know Him through Jesus Christ. He has revealed Himslef to us through Jesus and has shown us the way to intimacy with Him. God desires intimacy with all who will believe and put their faith or trust in Him.
“Loneliness is the most terrible poverty” – Mother Teresa
You can know God by faith.
“Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.” – Isaiah 26:4 (NASB)
“…these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.” – John 20:31 (NASB)
Faith is believing what you cannot see.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7 (NASB)
“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once…” – 1 Corinthians 15:3-6a (NKJV)
Prayer is an expression of faith.
Talking to God is sometimes called prayer. When we talk to God we demonstrate our faith or trust in Him. You can talk to God intimately any time you want.
