Good Morning May 5

Our God is a God of relationships. “God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.”(Revelation 21:3) He came among us in Jesus Christ. The next big electronic craze is virtual reality where a person wears an electronic headset seeing images portrayed before his eyes as if he was a participant in that scene. But this is “virtual” reality. It is not reality. It may be a fun entertainment media, but with all our video games and virtual this and that, even all our texting, it lacks the quality of being a real relationship. There is certainly convenience, and at times necessity, for all our electronic means, but there is no substitute for developing a relationship face to face. Jesus said, “The eye is the lamp of the body.”(Matthew 6:22) A relationship is built looking into one another’s eyes, and having an unhurried conversation together in the same room. No electronics can substitute for that.
