What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. – A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
I'd like to meet the President of the United States. If the Commander-in-Chief were to call me up and say, "Peter, I'd like you to fly you out on Air Force One to Washington, D.C. and have a cup of coffee in the Oval Office, so we can get to know one another," I would be all over it!
Yes, I have "met" the President and I think I "know" him, but it's been from afar (via the TV or the internet). It's another thing to get up close and personal with him. See where I'm going with this?
Jesus… looked toward heaven and prayed… "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." – John 17:1, 3
What you think about God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – is the most important thing about you. But I'm not talking about just theology. Knowing about Him and knowing Him intimately are the greatest of all quests.
"Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth." – Hosea 6:3
1. Hosea 6:3 : Is 2:3; Mic 4:2
2. Hosea 6:3 : Ps 19:6; Mic 5:2
3. Hosea 6:3 : Job 29:23; Ps 72:6; Joel 2:23
Maybe it's time to sit down and have a cup of coffee with God. But don't worry about catching a flight to His place. He'll come to yours.
God, I want to know You, the only true God! By the power of Your Holy Spirit in me, and the truth of Your Word, I want to know more about You, and I want to know You more personally. Through Your Word and Your Spirit, come to me like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth. Amen.
