Here is something true and rich: God is personal, so we are personal with Him and each other. Personal means that God comes close to His people. When He comes close, He speaks to us and invites us to respond, and when we respond to Him, He hears. This means that He listens and is actually influenced by what we say. We could think of it as being invited into His home, where He speaks openly and with love, and He offers the best divine hospitality. All that is almost too much to take in, but then He invites us to speak of what is important to us,and as we speak, He is engaged, undistracted, and responsive. We could call it fellowship, even communion. (Welch, Edward, T., Caring for One Another, Crossway--Wheaton, Illinois, (2018, pp. 45).
