It’s not the knowledge of scripture –
It is the will to do it.
It’s not the obedience of the hands –
It is the attitude of the heart.
It’s not the people I know, depend on, love, need –
It is God.
It’s not talk about God –
It is talk with God.
It’s not asking God for what I want –
It is asking God for what He wants.
It’s not about what I can or cannot do or be –
It is about what God does in me, with me, through me.
It’s not about knowing myself –
It is about knowing God.
It’s not about knowledge for the sake of knowing, or satisfying curiosity –
It is about knowledge to know Him better, love Him better, serve Him better.
It’s not knowing about God –
It is knowing God.
