This blog is about panting after God as a hart pants after water. It is about knowing God. And it came about because of my knowledge that I don’t know and pant after God as I ought, and as I wish I would.
So what am I to make of this verse in Hebrews 8?
“And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest” (11).
A day is coming when I will know God as He wishes me to know Him.
Wow! That is so much richer a knowledge than knowing Him only as I wish to know Him. My desire is shallow and finite; His, deep and infinite. And I get to know Him that way!
In the meantime, I must continue panting after Him.
In the meantime, I need neighbors and brothers to teach me, “Know the Lord.”
(And I need to teach my neighbors and brothers that very same thing.)
