Intimacy

Intimacy
Luke 15

Through the lens of intimacy it is crisply understood that a relationship must be in position for an emotional experience of loss to occur. Matthew 24:11-13 describes a portion of the premise as Jesus said, “…Many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” The fact that love waxed cold, proves that love was once shared and experienced mutually from human to human, yet the cares of this life, for some, snuffed it out.

In a similar fashion the depth of intimacy, relationship, and its connectivity is shared based upon the language of Luke 15 and the essence of the lost sheep, coin, and son. In all three scenarios, while the subjects of the parables were lost, the shepherd, woman, and father remained perplexed, void, empty, and full of anxiety. They were conecred to their item in intimacy and relationship. Because of that, they were willing to continually search and we jubilant upon object/subject recovery.

Luke 15:4-6 “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.” In this text the shepherd was excited about finding his sheep and instead of letting the sheep walk on its own, he carried the sheep back to pasture and restoration.

Similarly, the woman of Luke 15, searched until she found her coin. Luke 15:8-9 …What woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.” The discovery of the coin was so special, she called her friends to celebrate. In like fashion was the same behavior depicted through the response of the prodigals father. Jesus proclaimed in Luke 15:22-24, “But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.”

The question is, are you intimate with God to that extremem.Revere God and respect the cross. You are the clay In the Potter’s Hands. God has paved a way to save and comfort you today!
