One of the great beauties of the Scripture is that it is an invitation to spend time with God, learning about Him, and being instructed by Him. Even before Christ, the commands of God's Word are structured with our relationship in mind.
The fourth of the ten commandments is a command to spend time with God. One day in seven is holy, the world and things of the world are to be set aside in favor of God and His things. David speaks of rising early, even in the middle of the night, to seek the presence of God (Psalm 119:148). Jesus follows this example in times of isolated prayer and communion with God (Mark 1:35).
And we are invited into this intimate fellowship with God today, to spend time with our Lord and Savior.
"Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!" -- Song of Solomon 2:13
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
