There are two goals that I want to pursue in life:
GOAL 1: I want to love God. Growing up in a Christian home, I’ve found that the only motivation that can keep me connected to God in a healthy way is love – to let myself experience His love for me and then respond to Him with love. Love is a topic of immense proportions and various intrepretations. But I believe that the only genuine love that we can know is Who God is – He is love. Along this line, I cannot love God, if I do not love the people around me. I believe that loving others is giving God the freedom to express Himself through me and this is one of the ways that I can love God. Loving God keeps my motives right.
GOAL2: I want to know God. This is indeed a lofty goal, similar to my 1st goal. How can a finite know The Infinite? Nevertheless, there are many occassions and verses in the Bible about knowing God – who He is, how He moves, what His values & priorities are, different ways He communicates, . . . . . I believe that God wants to make Himself known to us and each day gives us a fresh opportunity to learn more about who God is – Incarnate in a finite world. The most grounded way to know God is through His Word and knowing God through His Word keeps my doctrine immunized from heresy 🙂
So join me in this adventure of knowing and loving God in the contexts of our daily living.
