Knowing about God Versus Knowing God

A man once said to a pastor "I know about God" and the pastor said "Well that's great but there is something much better then that. That is knowing God." It's true. We can know all about God but it won't change us and neither will it save us. It is knowing Him that will make all the difference.

These words from a song express how feel so well. "Oh, I want to know You more, deep within my heart I want to know You..." I am thankful that we can not only know about God but we can know Him personally and our relationship with Him can grow deeper and stronger. It is my prayer and my hearts desire to know God and continue to know Him better and I hope and pray that it is your hearts desire also.

...... "All the beauty that I seek for, every treasure I would own,
Thou art these in rich completeness, they are found in Thee alone;
All the loveliness I long for, all the best that I would be,
I can never find them elsewhere than in Thee, Lord, just in Thee.

"Empty me of all my glory, all my boasting, all my pride;
Let my righteousness, my wisdom, on Thy cross be crucified;
Fill me, then, with all Thy fullness, all Thy will work Thou for me;
In Thyself is nothing lacking; make me, Lord, complete in Thee."
