call to servanthood
Something extraordinary separates Christians from those who are unsaved, and that is the powerful truth that God reveals Himself to those who love Him. Because Gospel teachings are so contrary to the usual behaviour and expectations of the world, and tend to challenge our social conventions of what is acceptable, we can miss the truth that certain things operate according to the same processes that govern the natural world. The most obvious of these is interaction and relationship. We don't make a habit of revealing too much of ourselves to strangers, and the process of trust determines the degree to which we put ourselves out there. It's an instinct that has roots in the same understanding of the relationship between God and His people. God reveals Himself to those who love Him and who willingly reveal themselves to Him.
