The man who has experienced God has invested more than just time to gain the connection; such a man is never at the mercy of the man who argues against the experience. Beyond contradictions by those who only pass by, and beyond the arguments of the staunchly religious who know nothing of the Spirit, lies man’s genuine connection with God—alone with Him, we gain understanding and receive answers: “And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples.”
Those who remain outside of what God has for them do so through ignorance—they do not know how to understand or experience Him. Jesus taught God’s Word in parables to those who were able to hear, those who stopped to listen; but even those who stopped to listen, those willing to hear, needed the help of simple stories to grasp truths so wondrous and possibilities so loving as those taught by Jesus: “But without a parable He did not speak to them.”
For the one who truly knows God, the method and level of connection is vital: Jesus explained “all things” to “disciples”, apart from crowds who stopped to listen, but then returned to routine and familiar “things”.
