|HSRM Conference, Green Lake, Wisconsin, July 2014|
I agree. What Todd meant was, while conferences can be God-things and therefore good, the real Christian life is an ongoing, day-by-day conferencing with God. What I most need is not a conference, but a God who is not limited to making conference appearances.
I will conference with God today. I don't need to be in Wisconsin to do this. The main speaker at today's God-Conference is: God. That's who I have really come to hear. Earthly speakers come and go; God remains.
You and I can conference with God, today, and all week. God is a good conference speaker. God has wisdom and knowledge. He knows the Word and can preach it. God has ability - lots of it. God is loving. God has the perfect resume and background as a conference speaker. God doesn't charge an honorarium. Instead, God will be honored, as he deserves to be.
Real praying is conferencing with God. I'm attending the God-conference this morning, in my home.
Location: my heart.
Cost: my life.
