Into His Presence

According to the author of the book, Dr. Anderson, Intimacy with God is a close, connection to Him guided by trust and vulnerability. " (p. 27).  Intimacy also provides believers a everlasting covenant with God." (p. 30)  Also, Dr. Anderson says there four elements of Intimacy with God, first- Movement toward Intimacy- A nearness God wants with us, a closeness. A covenant.
