"I in them."—John 17:23.

If such be the union which subsists between our souls and the person of our Lord, how deep and broad is the channel of our communion! This is no narrow pipe through which a thread-like stream may wind its way, it is a channel of amazing depth and breadth, along whose glorious length a ponderous volume of living water may roll its floods. Behold He hath set before us an open door, let us not be slow to enter.

This city of communion hath many pearly gates, every several gate is of one pearl, and each gate is thrown open to the uttermost that we may enter, assured of welcome. If there were but one small loophole through which to talk with Jesus, it would be a high privilege to thrust a word of fellowship through the narrow door; how much we are blessed in having so large an entrance!

Had the Lord Jesus been far away from us, with many a stormy sea between, we should have longed to send a messenger to Him to carry Him our loves, and bring us tidings from His Father's house; but see His kindness, He has built His house next door to ours, nay, more, He takes lodging with us, and tabernacles in poor humble hearts, that so He may have perpetual intercourse with us.

O how foolish must we be, if we do not live in habitual communion with Him. When the road is long, and dangerous, and difficult, we need not wonder that friends seldom meet each other, but when they live together, shall Jonathan forget his David? A wife may when her husband is upon a journey, abide many days without holding converse with him, but she could never endure to be separated from him if she knew him to be in one of the chambers of her own house.

Why, believer, dost not thou sit at His banquet of wine? Seek thy Lord, for He is near; embrace Him, for He is thy Brother. Hold Him fast, for He is thine Husband; and press Him to thine heart, for He is of thine own flesh.

Charles Spurgeon

Amen sister! Thanks for seeing it as such.
The world and believers have time for communicating by so many other means of technology, but find little time to spend with their God!
The people of the world you can understand, but sadly, you can include many believers in the above statement as well.
With the Love of Jesus Christ.

I couldn't agree more brother! It's the sad truth. So many are looking to fill a void, when in fact Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who can fill it. Having a relationship with the Lord is the best thing one could do! It's something that so many take for granted.

The world intrudes in so many different ways. Toss in family, friends, job, etc it's a wonder that any do find the time!

Yet find the time we must! Even if the cost is everything mentioned and not named before.

He understands exactly what we are going through. That is why he would make time to pray and be with the Father. Away from others he would go.

We must do the same!

Once again thank you for sharing sister.
