The better we know the Lord, the more we will love him, and the more we love him, the more we will worship and obey him. As a result, we will become more like him and experience what the apostle Peter called growing “in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” – Warren W. Wiersbe
I think its awesome that God gives us the opportunity to participate in the process of sanctification, and that he provides grace to accompany us along the way.
Father God, thank you that you are not some distant deity who has no interest in our faith journey. That we can know you and experience fellowship with you, and that while we are growing in knowledge of who you are, our lives are transformed. Help us to be patient with ourselves and others during the race that we run. – Amen
