Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way of everlasting. Psalm 139:23,24
“Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” John Calvin – The Institutes of Christian Religion
It was easy to give my heart to Christ after He made me His. It has been a little more difficult to get more head knowledge of my Savior because that meant I had to purposely seek this knowledge out with a very intentional approach to knowing more of Him.
So, as I purposely set out to learn more about the God that saved me, through reading and studying His word, I am also learning how to apply what I learn not only to my heart, which comes easy, but my mind as well, not for a facade of outward holiness for my own glory….but a deep and lasting inward holiness for God’s glory alone.
