“One of the most wonderful effects of the work of the cross is that you and I can be together just as Adam and Eve were with Me before they fell into rebellion. I used to walk in the cool of the day so that I could be with My loved ones. Now that I have torn the veil of separation between Us, We can spend as much time together as you desire. I make Myself available to you. You have been formed and reborn so that We can communicate.
"Come to Me today. I love Our time together. Each time you come, you can remember the power of what Jesus has done and be grateful for His love for you. He knows how important it is for you to be with Me.”
Gen. 3:8 NIV
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
Mark 15:37-38 AMP
37) And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed out His life.
38) And the curtain [of the Holy of Holies] of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
Few of us fully appreciate all that the cross of Jesus Christ has done for us. God, our Father, is at all times showing us that intimate fellowship with Him is the position for which each of us has been created. We are made to function hand-in-hand with our Father in Heaven. The guidelines on how to function that way have been made available to us in His Word. His constant urgings to be like Christ, to lay our lives down, to deny ourselves, to take up our cross, and to make God first in our lives are love messages to the bridal heart of Jesus. He also promises to do everything to initiate and accomplish those changes.
True intimacy is our privilege. If we look to our own needs and place our Lord somewhere behind them, our precious, loving Father promises to bring His priorities back in order in our lives. He has committed to do so. We have committed to need Him to do it.
Make me more aware of what You’ve done, Lord,
