Once you enter into a relationship with the living God, most people assume it’s time to kick back, relax and let God do all the work. Yet the Scriptures teach us our connection to God is not a passive plug-in.
The follower of Jesus is responsible to stay close to the Lord during times when the winds of suffering drive us further from God and leave us feeling disconnected from Him.
In this series from John 17 Louis Lapides uses this portion from the Upper Room Discourse to demonstrate how nearness to God is never lost in the storms of life.
