The Scripture teaches that the Lord Himself is coming to receive us unto Himself. Sure, we are going to a place...but much more importantly, we are going to a Person, to be with Him. This is the hope of the Church - we are going to be with Him!

The disciples matured to a passion and love for the Lord that is a profound depth of relationship with the Infinite and Eternal and yet personal and personable God Who desires to reveal Himself to us. That same sense of intimacy is available to each of us as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The more we seek Him, the more we will know Him. And the more we know Him, the more we will love Him and want to be with Him! God invites all of us to seek Him and to have this intimacy with Him. God's invitation is plural going out to all...but the response must be individual, for each one of us must respond to His call.
