“To Grow in the Knowledge of God and His Word” Note by me.
–Originally a comment, shared here for others’ encouragement benefit–
We’re all missing details here or there in our grasp and understanding of Scripture. It’s a very deep well of living water, an ocean even, a sword that cuts to the heart, it’s really living and active.
We’ll all hopefully be learning and growing in our knowledge and application of God’s Word until the day we die, yes, and our mind will need to be renewed and conformed to Christ’s likeness until death because our minds were full of such filth and foolishness and falsehood for so long until Christ saved us.
Our hearts were desperately sick and wicked and none but God knew and understood our heart then and now and that’s why He gave us a new heart, a heart of flesh to replace our heart of stone, a heart that can love and obey God instead of hate and disobey Him.
That new heart He gives and renovates is a precious gift we must not forget to thank God for and to not take it for granted.
May His Holy Spirit fill us with daily gratitude and thanksgiving, to praise our awesome and incomparable heavenly Father who saved us sinners and made us saints and His children in Christ.
