Intimacy With God

Intimacy with God is like wood being used to light a fire stove in a living room. Once the log sits on the fire after some time, the log’s appearance changes. Though its frame remains the same, yet the log has now taken on the full essence of 🔥fire. Its life is no longer its own. It’s no longer sustained or held by its structure. Likewise, in the place of intimacy with God, as we by His grace remain steady and steadfast in His love, we are changed, we die to our egos, and our Adamic nature is transformed until we can see, with much inward conviction, truly it is no longer I that lives but Christ. Our lives also testify that when people see us, they now see Him. His light, His love, His peace, His fragrance, which has consumed the old man.

Externally, our appearance may remain the same, but internally, we have embraced the life of Christ. This transformation, this death to self, is only possible in His presence and by His Grace. We are refined, no longer sustained by our strength or power, but by His might alone. This change in appearance not only affects us but also radiates the fragrance of His love in the world. He illuminates the world through us, igniting it with the fire of His love.

Much Love in Christ,

Your Sister,
