Running on Empty – Here I Am

INTIMACY.

 

Revelation 3:15-17 (NLT)
“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.”

 

Revelation 3:20a (NLT)
“Look! I stand at the door and knock.”

 

Here I AM. 

 

Jesus didn’t invite you to FOLLOW a FORMULA.

 

John 16:1-3 (NIV)
“All this I have told you so that you will not fall away. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.”

 

Matthew 7:21-23 (NLT)
“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

 

3 Keys to Intimacy:

 

TIME.

PRIVATE time PRIORITIZED around INTIMACY.

 

TRANSPARENCY.

Intimacy = All of me.

 

SUBMISSION.

There is no RELATIONSHIP without FREE WILL.

 

Revelation 3:20b (NLT)
“If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
