To answer this question I want to tell you a story.
Once there was a highly respected teacher. Everyone wanted his attention, everyone wanted on to be on the waiting list to be under his instruction. He had the reputation of being the best tutor in the land. He was also very well loved by all former students, though they testified to the fact that he was unswervingly strict and tolerated no foolishness or slackness whatsoever!
Still, he was cherished, and all who ever sat under his teaching was devoted to him without wavering! In fact, those who became his pupils never ceased learning from him! Consequently, all wanted to glean from his wisdom, and glow in the light of his loving patient instruction, for he became a father to all who sought him out.
That teacher is still teaching. He has opened his class room to "whosoever will"! Anyone can come and receive His loving wisdom day or night! His name is the Holy Spirit of G-d, the Ruach ha Kodesh v'Elohim!
Now the ball is in our court, will we attend? This teacher is strict, do not forget. You can not just go waltzing into His presence with just any kind of attitude, but one must show proper reverence and respect! One must go to learn of Him, and be willing to apply all that has been learned - immediately - also one must go everyday if the teaching is to be taken seriously and expected to be effective! He can not educate us in His ways if we do not attend to Him! Disciples attend!
If we, who claim to be His disciples, were that devoted to Him, wouldn't the rest of the world be more interested? So when it comes right down to it, I have to ask myself, have we lived, are we living now, as disciples or deserters? Selah.
