Intimacy is Everything

God does not call us to tasks, but to be with Him and do tasks.

Godly tasks are not the ends of the Christian life. I had a revelation this weekend that for my version of faithful Christianity is so works-oriented. As if obedience is something Jesus sends us off and to do by ourselves.

No, this is not how Christianity works!

In everything, Jesus first calls us to himself in love, and the task is something that we do together with him. In all things, at home, and work, in church, in relationships, in fun, we need to be consciously aware that Jesus wants to be present in that moment as an expression of his nearness to us.

Intimacy is everything. And all things we do for God is birthed out of this nearness.
