Intimacy With God

"Scripture and religion became not mere doctrines or moralisms for me, but love-making, a mutual exchange of being and intimacy. The marvelous anthology of books and letters called the Bible is for the sake of a love affair between God and the soul and corporately between God and history." -Richard Rohr https://email.cac.org/t/ViewEmail/d/1E39970F3763E32D2540EF23F30FEDED/4B5CCCED87CE46A674AF8F7A76570606?alternativeLink=False As a male, I hardly know how to describe the intimacy I feel as I absorb the amazing reality of moments past and present with my kinsman-redeemer. Whether reflecting on my January 3,1973 transformation, or this "new every morning" moment, as I read just now! It's hard to describe unless experienced. My greatest treasure. “Who are you?” he asked. “I am your ,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a guardian-redeemer of our family.” “The Lord bless you, my daughter,” he replied. “This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor. And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character." Ruth 3:9‭-‬11 NIV
