“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” —A. W. Tozer
Knowing about God is one thing; knowing God personally is a whole different story. The bottom line is people need to know God in a personal and intimate way. Head-knowledge and the mere approval of biblical doctrine will not suffice it anymore. We need to encounter the living God in fresh and powerful new ways.
The truth of the matter is we are all desperate for more—more of something that can quench our spiritual thirst and satisfy our spiritual hunger. We need something that can blow our minds away, changes our hearts, and transform our lives forever.
Unfortunately, our Christian gatherings can sometimes be dry, shallow, and superficial. Something needs to change. Something needs to happen…and soon.
What is this something that must happen? It is a lot simpler than we think. The answer may (or may not) surprise you. What we desperately need is a double dose of, none other than, God Himself, and a more biblical view of who He truly is.
Programs, gatherings, and special activities (as good as they may be), will not ultimately fulfill us. We need to possess a richer, more profound understanding of who God is—His character, attributes, and dealings with humankind—all of which has its ultimate fulfillment and consummation in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
But it doesn’t stop right there. We must allow that knowledge of God to penetrate the inner, most personal chambers of our heart and soul and bring about real, positive change in our lives. This will not happen instantly or naturally, but prayerfully as we strive to live in submission to, and obedience of, the Holy Spirit.
The incredibly good news is more of Him is available! But in order for us to know and enjoy Him more, we need to dive in. We need to go deeper—deeper into the oasis of His grace, mercy, and infinite love.
Are you ready to go deeper?
For His glory,
