10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Why didn’t the other dogs continue on in the chase?
they had not seen the rabbit
Have you seen the Lord
have you truly seen the Lord?
Are you willing to keep your eyes, your focus on Jesus?
Intimacy is Allowing God to look into our heart and God allowing us to look into His!
The first key is “Truth”
being sincere … being truthful with God … to hold nothing back
the second key… is Time

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Intimacy brings us to that place where God’s desires become our desires!
Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Go to the throne…
don’t turn to the phone!
Deny self …Pick up Your Cross …and follow Jesus
