As a Bible-believing and practicing Christian, I thought I had a firm grasp on the level of intimacy God expects to have with His creation – with me – but Greg Paul shared his growth, experiences and insights in such a way that the reader becomes aware that whatever their current level of intimacy with their Maker, they can always go deeper – much deeper. Paul parallels his relationship with God with his relationship with people. His stages of intimacy in his physical life – as a son, brother, friend, husband, father, worker, etc – had a direct impact on his spiritual intimacy with Father God.
Sometimes Jesus will reveal His plan to us without revealing Himself. We can have some answers and some comfort and then Jesus might walk away. It is not enough for Jesus to walk and talk with us He wants us to need Him. He desires us to simply ask Him to come closer and reveal Himself to us. Should it ever be enough to come into the Kingdom of God without seeing the King’s face? If you invite Jesus in He will come in and reveal Himself to us.

Our primary relationship is with God. We have to know and understand His word in order to properly interact with Him. Once we understand the importance of “right relationship” with God, we pursue it continually. More immediately in our physical world, we have a proper working model of a “good” relationship. Our human relationships are to mirror our primary spiritual relationship. I hope this compilation of God’s Word helps you with your relationship with Him and with people.
