How does one experience God, where does one experience God and when does one experience God?  These are three questions that are hard to give a good answer to. 

     All experiences with God, every one of them, are subjective.  Everyone comes to know Him in a unique and special way.  The experience, the first time knowledge of His presence, is always personal.  If you get right down to the basics, the Bible is a book that records the history of how God reveals himself to people.  Moses met God through a burning bush, Jacob wrestled with God and Isaiah met God in a vision.  Still, there is one place today that we can experience God’s presence, a place that Jesus promised to be.   That place is during worship.  In Matthew 18:20, Jesus said, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

     Jesus wants us to come to know Him and to accept him as our Savior.  He wants us to seek Him and to pursue him and to have a share in his eternal kingdom.  It is His wish that we feel his magnificent presence in our lives through the Holy Spirit; the inseparable trinity of God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit.  It is the Holy Spirit that connects us to the individual member of the trinity as well as connecting each of us to one another.

     It is God’s desire that we come to experience him and to grow in faith to become mature and able servants that are empowered to serve others.
