That’s how I imagine it will be: I will have a direct personal relationship with Jesus. Of course I already have that; what I mean is, it will be like dropping in on Rick Smith. He’ll be there, otherwise unoccupied, as if he were waiting for me, and he’ll show me his latest projects. Then we will sit down and hang out together, just like Rick and me; but his words will be life and freedom to my soul, because he is the Son of God.
Of course we believe that in some measure this is available to us now: that the Kingdom of God has broken through into the present age. I can’t tell you how it happens; but when it does, I understand that he loves me in spite of it all, and it changes me.
