Intimacy with God

He Is both the Creator, the Alpha and the Omega of the universe, and the Father of each and every one of us. As such, He deeply desires intimacy with us in the very Core of His Divine Heart, the heart of His bosom. Yet how many of us really desire intimacy with Our Father, that is true intimacy from the very depths of our hearts? Nothing gives God the Father greater joy, greater pleasure, than a vibrant child-Father relationship with each of His children on earth. And it is this that, in part, is going to occur when the New Jerusalem, the New Israel, comes in full. But how many of us truly desire to have such an intimate relationship with Our Father? Despite the profundity of Love, Joy, Peace, and Happiness that God the Father so earnestly desires to shower us with?
