When you say you have a “personal relationship” with someone prominent, it implies you can get to that person outside official channels; perhaps you can even call them at home or on their cell phone. Other people might know that person by reputation, but you know him or her. You are not just associates or acquaintances; you are friends.
Perhaps that’s why many in our culture find it odd when someone says they have a “personal relationship with God.” How, indeed, does someone have a personal relationship with a God who spun off quasars and galaxies and who is invisible Spirit? What could possibly be personal about a relationship with God? And if God is knowable, how can I know that I know him? We’ll address these questions in this week’s message.
