Knowing Jesus More

There are 5 things I want more and more and more of, never being content with what I already have. The first is wisdom, I need so much more wisdom than I presently have, I desperately want more. The second is my relationship with Jesus, it is so shallow and superficial, so much of what I think is a relationship with my Lord is probably just tradition and religious activity. Paul had the discontent that I am talking about and he expresses it in Philippians 3:8. “More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,”. God waits to be wanted, really wanted, and when we seek Him diligently He reveals Himself to us. Deuteronomy 4:29 says, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.”. Also in Psalms 119:2. “How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.” My real proximity to Jesus is hard to measure for sure, but nothing messes up the accuracy of self assessment in our walk with Christ as much as projecting an image to others that we are intimate with Jesus when in fact we are not. I want, really want a growing relationship with Jesus.
