• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Savoring the beauty of God

While reading this week, I came across this quote from Jonathan Edwards: “The first effect of the power of God in the heart in regeneration, is to give the heart a divine taste or sense; to cause it to have a relish of the loveliness and sweetness of the supreme excellency of the divine nature.”

It really seemed to capture the thought that God desires both our mind and our heart; that He desires the engagement of our mind in thinking about Him, which leads to a greater heart passion for Him, and in turn would drive us to want to know Him more by thinking more deeply about Him. 

One writer put it this way: “A person must not only see the effects of God’s work in the world but also savor the beauty of God’s nature in the gospel, and in all that he has made, and in all that he does.”

Let us not grow “weary” in our pursuit of Him.
