My first inclination was to delete this phishing scam but,
My second notion was,
“Wait, this invitation makes some sense.”
Let me explain.
The majority would no doubt think that an affair is a sexual relationship. It is. But there is another classification for an affair.
When I looked up affair I read sentences like a matter causing public scandal or controversy; a romantic and sexual relationship between two people who aren’t married; and read synonyms like adultery, fling, and cheating.
But affair has another view.
In this view, an affair is a private or personal concern other than a sexual relationship. As in business of any kind. Matters of state. Engagement of troops. An event. Synonyms like appointment, undertaking, or situation identify this view of an affair.
Okay if this distinction is made and accepted, may I suggest people have an affair … with God?
What are the benefits of having an affair with God?
- It’s thrilling,
- It’s comforting, and
- It’s refreshing.
As a matter of fact, there is no satisfaction like the satisfaction God gives—and this is God’s invitation to us.
I suspect God desires to be intimate with me. Not in the sexual sense, of course, but much deeper than the sexual sense. In my past, intimacy with God is something I’ve run from because I frankly, feared intimacy with God. An affair with God has consequences and I wasn’t certain I desired to hazard these consequences. Consequences like commitment, devotion, and fidelity. However, I’ve warmed to this idea of intimacy with God. I’m now willing to wrap myself in God’s love. It isn’t a trivial decision to let God love you.
