When You Find Christ, Nothing Can Distance You from Him

 

When you have truly found God, when you have found the sweetness and power of a life standing at His feet, then nothing and nobody can distance you from Him.

What a great joy is to live your life kneeling at the feet of your Lord! Oh, people do not know this life! They don’t know the sweetness, peace, joy and the power that descend from Heaven, upon those who live their lives kneeling at the feet of their Lord! People don’t know Jesus, this is why they don’t know this life.

When you have truly found God, when you have found the sweetness and power of a life standing at His feet, then nothing and nobody can distance you from Him. When you have found this life, then you no longer seek to do your “duty” concerning spiritual things through different useless rituals, but your entire life is a life surrendered to God, and lived in His bosom, your entire life flows towards Him.

(Translation from: Preot Iosif Trifa, Mai lângă Domnul meu, Editura Oastea Domnului, Sibiu, 2003, p. 84)
