I’ve also heard people define it as in-to-me-see and all the other nice sounding sorta stuff that’s all basically saying the same thing. But lets talk real simple for a second. Lets be clear. Lets talk like we’re trying to explain it to our 4 year old favourite niece.

Intimacy – me and you connected – deeply – very deeply – to the point of excluding everyone else or in a way that’s so personal its Unlike everything or everyone else. Private or secret stuff. Me and you sharing stuff that we don’t want anyone else to know. Sometimes its not cause we’re embarassed but its special secrets, nice ones, between me and you. Things that make us really sad. Really happy. So that when we look at each other and smile people look at us and go “what are you two on about”. And we wont say anything but just the two of us know something for just us two.

Is that simple enough

Now remix that paragraph.

Pretend Me is – Jesus. The Holy Spirit. God.

Intimacy – Me and you connected – deeply – very deeply – to the point of excluding everyone else or in a way that’s so personal its Unlike everything or everyone else. Private or secret stuff. Me and you sharing stuff that I don’t want anyone else to know about us. Sometimes its not cause we’re embarassed but its special secrets, nice ones, between Me and you.  Quality time. Feel good time. Like that feeling you get when you get a nice hug after you do something great or when you’re in a good mood. Or that pickmeup hug you get when you’re really down. Things that make Me really sad. Or things that make Me really happy. So that when we look at each other and smile people look at us and go “what are you two on about”. And we wont say anything but just the two of us know something for just us two.

So that’s God talking to me and you like that. Intimately.

Now…if you think you’ve ever in your life! Really missed someone! Or if you ever think you’ve been happy to see someone. You mom, your kid sister (baby sister lol). Brother. Friend . Partner. Whatever the case may be. Think back to that moment. Think back to how you felt…. All the emotions you were going through…. Now read the below (subtitles by AndrewMad4Christ)

9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you
say, ‘Show us the Father’? (AndrewMAD4Christ remix : Phillip, I thought you knew Me by now? Phillip I thought we had a connection? Some intimacy? And by the way if you and I are intimate, connected, in synch, then you’re connected to Us all even the Father.)

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (AndrewMAD4Christ remix: I thought it was all about obeying cause its good to obey. Its more than that, its obeying cause You and I are connected. Cause my heart is Your heart. I thought it was about doing good. But I now that I love You ore Father, now I know its about BEING good, cause you are in Me and I’m in You. That we’re intimate. Intimacy transforms me. Then me starts to act, think and be like You)

12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. (AndrewMAD4Christ remix: I’m trying hard but the more I walk with You. The closer we get, then I realise its not about do’s and don’ts its about you wanting us to be close. Cause when I’m close, then I’m changed from glory to glory….I can’t believe Lord that the greatest thing on Youre heart is to know me intimately and to be known the same way. That I may dwell in Your house and always be in Your presence forever Father)
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (AndrewMAD4Christ remix: I wish Father I could understand Your love. I wish I could make You look good all the time. Obedience is better than sacrifice. I wish You and I were the same. I wish that when people saw me, they saw You. I wish that I could give back to You the greatest of these…that self-less, reasonless, spontaneous, uncaused, uninvolved, undistorted, unmotivated, powerful, strong, everlasting, dedicated, palm-engraving, give-up-my-life-for-You kinda love)

Shalom (..which is the Holy Spirit) on you all and your loved ones.
