Without depending on him fully, and letting His spirit dwell and direct our lives completely.
How do we do this? We KNOW Him more. There is always more to know about Jesus. And “there is nothing compare to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ” (Philippians 3:8). The Word is our way of knowing Him more, and - just like spending more time with those we love - we fall more deeply in love...this time with Him.
In our lives we love the people that we “know” really well. The same is true for our relationship with the Lord. Although He loved us when we did not know him, as humans we cannot love Him unless we know him. Therefore the the verse “taste and see that the Lord is good” should continually have fresh meaning for us.
This year has been a transforming one. Maybe future blog posts will catalog some of it; maybe some of it will remain private. But as the calendar year comes to an end, I seem to have a deepening awareness of His presence in all things. The word “taste” no longer simply refers to tasting food that the Lord has created, but it refers to “tasting” the word which He spoke from the beginning of creation. I want to feed on His word more than I feed on food.
Jesus, may the bread of life (John 6:35) sustain both my body and my soul. Amen.
