“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”
John 6 : 30 – 35
|May 6, 2014 Bible Reading and Gospel|
We have a personal God who desires to have an individual relationship with us. God invites us into His presence in order to relate to us in the precise manner that we individually need. God is not some sort of amorphous power who deigns to interact with Creation every now and then. No, God is a personal God and He wants to make His way of relating to us personal. This is why He has created us in His own image and likeness — so that we are able to relate with Him on our own free will.
It is impossible to stay distant from God and be in His good graces. God is up-close and personal, whether we like it or not. The dangers of an overly devotional faith is its tendency to keep God at a distance. In any communal expression of praise and worship, the challenge is to keep our faith experience intimate and personal.
