what are we looking for?

more of you Lord, more of you! i want more of your presence in my life!
 what does that mean really?
 what are we looking for?

 more goosebumps?
 stronger feelings for Him?
 a spiritual high?
 supernatural happenings?

 or do we want to experience Him?

 His character?
 His love?
 His nature?
 God Himself?

 "but the fruit of the Holy Spirit (the work which His presence within accomplishes)
is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness
(meekness, humility), self control." (galations 5:22,23)

 how do we attain more of His presence? what do we have to do?

 win more people to the Lord?
 do more work in the church?
 pray more?

 or do we need to return to the One who united us with God in the first place?
 live in dependence upon Him for every aspect of fulfillment in our lives?

 "you who were once far away from God. yet now (God) has reconciled you to Himself
through the death of Christ in His physical body.  as a result, He has brought you into
His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a
single fault.  but you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. (colossians 1:21-23)

 the presence of God is not attained by religion or even spirituality
but by continuing in or returning to our faith and trust in JESUS!

 Jesus is the way!!
