How Do We Get To Intimacy With Christ?

SCRIPTURE

But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness.

~I Timothy 4:7

QUOTE

The world is no friend of grace and no help when it comes time to draw near to God.

~Chuck Swindoll

my thoughts red

Intimacy with Christ can become a reality but not without discipline. Jesus is not going to adjust His agenda to fit ours. He is not going to speed His pace to catch up with us; we are going to have to slow down. You cannot rush intimacy. God, as a rule, does not shout over the noise; we need to seek a quiet place to hear Him speak.

As the quote would suggest, a daily quiet time is not an easy accomplishment: it takes discipline. No one will naturally migrate toward a daily time of bible study, prayer and worship. The world is one big distraction and unless you make a commitment to do it and discipline yourself, it will not happen.
