He died for us so that whether we may be awake or asleep, we may live together with Him. (TLV) – I Thessalonians 5:10
Nosh: This verse affirms the wondrous truth that God created man for the express purpose of having fellowship and relationship with Himself. As Scripture records, when man sinned, that fellowship was broken. The Messiah’s first coming, death and resurrection are all about restoring that broken fellowship. Not only did He sacrifice His Son to secure our eternity with Him in heaven but also to restore an intimate relationship with Him right here on earth. It’s hard to believe, but the Almighty God wants to be my best friend.
