Jesus said: “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you” (John 14:20 NIV).
Friend to Friend
Do you ever feel far away from God, or that He is far away from you? If you’re like most people, then I bet the answer is yes. So let’s take a look at those “feelings.”
You are a triune being with a body, soul and spirit. Within your soul you have a mind, will, and emotions. That’s where those “feelings” come from. And if you are like most people, sometimes you feel closer to God than other times. But are you? Really?
Sometimes I feel closer to my husband than other times. But that doesn’t mean I’m any less married sometimes more than others. I usually feel closer to him after we’ve enjoyed a fun time together, been especially intimate, or gone through a struggle where we’ve locked arms and walked through the struggle together.
It’s not that much different in my relationship with God. I might feel closer to Him when we’ve had a good time together (as in worship service), been especially intimate spiritually (as in a morning quiet time), or gone through a struggle where we’ve locked arms and walked through the difficulty together (as in mourning the death of a loved one).
