Pressing In To Know God

Pressing In To Know God September 22, 2008

This quote from Martyn Lloyd-Jones should challenge us in our determination to truly relate to our glorious risen Saviour.

Do you know God? Do you know anything of this familiar trafficking with Him, this communion with Him, which is real? I am not talking about just getting on your knees and saying your prayers. I am speaking about a realization of the presence of God—God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We are meant to enjoy that. These are some of the exceeding great and precious promises that God has held out before us, and my argument is that if we know nothing about this, then we are guilty of limiting Him. We are not enjoying to the full what He has put at our disposal, what He has prepared for us as His people.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Christopher Catherwood, Seeking the Face of God: Nine Reflections on the Psalms, 1st U.S. ed. (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, 2005), 87.
