Relationship building means I need to linger longer.

Genesis 18;1-8  Abraham noticed he was having a visitation from the LORD.  An important part about building relationships comes with the "Breaking of Bread".  Abraham set out to keep these three with him longer by preparing a meal to share with them.  He wanted the presence of God to linger longer.  He seemed to know relationships take time and the relationship with the LORD is no different.  I desire to lounger longer in His presence so as to know His peace, His joy, His love, etc. ...for me.

Abraham became aware of the blessing to come upon Sarah.  He became burdened for the city of Sodom.  He became aware of the activity of God.  All while lingering in the LORD's presence.  Notice Abraham did more listening than he did talking.  Linger with the LORD in His presence, linger longer and listen to what the Spirit is saying to His Churches.

Every time I read this it reminds me of my earthly father. One day we were watching a movie together, enjoying each others company. When the movie was over I said I had to go. My father asked "are you sure you have to leave right now?" What he said touched my heart so much I decided to stay a while longer. He didn't say it in any emotion except for a longing to spend more time with his son. 

I then remember what Jesus says in addition to these verses... how much more does He want to spend time if we only linger longer. How many times I think of what I want to do on my own and focus my thoughts on my pleasures and riches. I suppose this is my confession. 

I continually come to this post reading these verses in great appreciation of how much the Father loves us. He goes to extraordinary lengths to get our attention. Thank you Dennis for revealing this diamond to those who never knew it was there.
