No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. John 14:18
How often do we live like we are orphaned by Jesus, or at least think that way?
I myself am not someone who "feels" the presence of God, or at least I don't think so. I have wondered what it would be like to not be a believer, how does he/she "feel"? The contrast may be telling. Maybe they have an emptiness that I have been spared. Maybe it isn't what I have that matters as much as the loss I have avoided. If the unbelieving world indeed feels it is alone, then we should tell them there is an alternative -- The presence of God via the Holy Spirit, and not feeling alone.
