There’s God’s real presence, and there’s God’s felt presence…

I agree with Portland writer Tony Kriz who recently said:

“God has promised to “never leave or forsake” us (Heb. 13:5). But that’s his real presence—not his felt presence. The truth is we can’t guarantee that people will always sense God’s presence. And I fear we have created a culture of pretending in the church. Our religious rhetoric doesn’t match our real-life experience with God. And that sets up us, and others, for dangerous disappointments.”
