The human personality has a right to be consciously aware of a meeting with God. There will be a spiritual confirmation, an inward knowledge, or witness. This kind of confirmation and witness was taught and treasured by the great souls throughout the ages. Conscious awareness of the presence of God! I defy any theologian or teacher to take that away from the believing Church of Jesus Christ! But be assured they will try. And I refer not just to the liberal teachers. God has given us the Bible for a reason’so it can lead us to meet God in Jesus Christ in a clear, sharp encounter that will burn on in our hearts forever and ever. When the Bible has led us to God and we have experienced God in the crisis of encounter, then the Bible has done its first work. That it will continue to do God’s work in our Christian lives should be evident!
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith. Hebrews 10:22

Lord, I believe that You have drawn us close to You because You wish to have fellowship with Your creation. Let us keep that in mind as we build Your Church. Make Your Spirit very evident to us as we worship You.
