Relating to God

Do you have a text message relationship with God or do you actually experience his presence and hear his voice?

I am a fan of technology. In fact, I have two college degrees in information systems. I will be the first to say that email, text messaging, and the plethora of other ever-increasing methods of communication are extremely helpful when used appropriately. However, real relationship, closeness, and intimacy are best experienced when we gather together and do some old fashioned talking and hanging out. There is a depth of intimacy that only happens when we sit with each other; when we talk with each other; when we listen to each other.

The same is true in our relationship with God. We can’t expect intimacy with God if we don’t sit in His presence and listen to His words. In fact, we need to do this every day. How bad do you want to know God? How close do you want to get to God?
