We live in an increasingly intimate world because of communications technology that can connect you with almost anyone anywhere anytime. Ironically, we also live in a world marked by increased tension, conflict and anxiety caused – at least in part – by that very same communications technology. If you’re honest, you probably would have to add that you sometimes feel as if your communication with God takes on some of these same characteristics. So what’s the best way to communicate with God? Through the Bible, prayer, the Holy Spirit, other people and those God prods that come at just the right time, to be sure. However, there’s a more powerful way that is possible because God has become one of us and shared the fullness of God’s love with us in the most personal way imaginable. Which means that if you’re longing for some seriously serious God talk, you need to begin having a serious conversation with Jesus.
