The Bliss of Longing
with Justin Abraham
“The Bible teaches us to desire God and to have joy in God, or delight in God. It illustrates both. Godly people are seen longing, hungering, thirsting and fainting for God. They are also seen enjoying, delighting in, and being satisfied in God.” John Piper
In this session we tackle the mystery of having found Jesus yet longing and craving for more of Him.
Bill Johnson says
“The quest for his face is the ULTIMATE quest… The bottom line is that we give ALL of ourselves to obtain all of him. There’s never been a better deal. The ultimate quest is doable and within reach. It is so all inclusive that the smallest child may come. Ever other journey and every other ambition pale in comparison. One might say this one challenge adds meaning to all of life’s other pursuits. Those who respond to the invitation find little else to live for. Those who say no spend their lives looking for an adequate replacement. And there is none to be found anywhere.
This is a great wonder –
John 14:21 whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]
Hope you enjoy this and that God touches you in a real and deep way.
