Paul expressed his heart's longing in the words,
"that I may know Him." (Phil. 3.10)
Job, in the record of his pilgrimage toward God, declares,
"I know that ...I shall see God," (19.26)
and at the end of his journey he declares,
"now mine eye seeth Thee." (42.5)
This is always the aim and longing of the true child of God.
It is easy to find things to believe,
things to experience,
things to do -
and then find that at the end of it all we have a "Christianity"
without possessing the Life of God.
We can get excited about transmitting the correct doctrine.
We can emphasize the correct experiences.
And somehow miss the fact that God Himself desires to
fill all our vision,
and be all our Life.
The Holy Spirit has been the agent of God's work ever since the first man was conscious of life.
Throughout the history of the generations of the Bible, and since, God has never left Himself without a witness.
Daniel says, "the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." (11.32)
Real, intimate, spiritual knowledge of God is Life and Light and Strength for all our pathway - there is need for nothing else.
