Am I Willing To Be With God?

I just finished reading a wonderful interview with Richard Foster, a pastor who has spent the last 40 years trying to address the church about the importance of spiritual formation. In the Christianity Today article he is interviewed and makes this observation:

“This is a great overarching theme in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, to Moses, I am with you. I am with you. I am with you. Then there is the haunting question: Are you willing to be with me?”  – Richard Foster

So the question for me, and for you, today is not about whether God is with us or not. God is with us. The question is, will we lean into God t0 be present and alive to Him?
