Willard: a conversational relationship with God

Wednesday, July 17, 2019
    We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
    —1 John 4:13 (NIV)
    Our union with God—his presence with us, in which our aloneness is banished and the meaning and full purpose of human existence is realized—consists chiefly in a conversational relationship with God while we are each consistently and deeply engaged as his friend and colaborer in the affairs of the kingdom of the heavens.
    ... Dallas Willard (1935-2013), Hearing God, Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1999, p. 56 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 9:37-38; 1 Cor. 3:9; 2 Tim. 2:15; 1 John 4:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I rejoice that I am no longer alone.
