Intinmacy With God
[SIZE="1"][F]I will not be quoting many scriptures in this post because you are already familiar with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Intimacy with them is not taught, but must be learned and practiced.
Jesus did not come to this earth to die for all people, In a way He did, but He came to save ME! MY Lord Jesus saw me in my sin and placed a price on me. I did not come cheaply-even though I was covered with sin. He saw what I needed, He loved me enough to give all. He counted it not being on equals with God a thing to be grasped or something that would make Him hesitate coming to the earth for ME.
What did He give up? Equality with the Father, not during His sojourn on the earth, but for the rest of eternity, After the Judgment He will hand everything over to the Father. Jesus created the earth and mankind, according to John 1: 17. Why? Because He wanted us to know that He KNEW the workiings of the planet intimately and was still willing to come for ME.
Jesus also gained something He never had before. When I arrive in Heaven, I will see the Father and the Spirit even though they are pure Spirit. When I see Jesus, I will see Him as I am--in a changes body, which he acquired on this earth. He will forevermore be in a body, something which He never had. Why? Because in His eyes I was worth it.
How can I not be intimate with my Brother Jesus who gave it all for me? I love Him!! I am anxious to praise His name, and to share this with others!
How can a person without a physiological reason be depressed looking into that mirror and realizing the cost Jesus paid for him or her. I was and am the most expensive heaven could pay. I am somebody because Jesus paid the highest price possible to save me, and then He didn't force it on me.
It is so wonderful to realize that salvation is personal. I am being buried into the one that gave it all for ME!
I can't thank Him enough. What about you?[/SI[/FONT]ZE]
