When we walk into friendship with God, we welcome him into the most intimate and personal areas of our lives. We do not need to hide from him or pretend that we are someone who we are not. Because of the cross of Christ, we can now come to the Lord of the universe as we are and we can enjoy a deep friendship with the Him knowing that he has redeemed our messy lives for himself. "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20
