Do I Really Know You God?

 I came across a really good article called “The Height of Godliness” by Charles F. Stanley and in this the author talked about stages that a Christian goes through in the life long journey, or friendship of knowing God.  Charles Stanley writes, “Over the years, I’ve noticed a recurring theme in conversations with other believers. Right after affirming their salvation in Christ, they conclude with these words…. ” But I know I haven’t grown as I should.” Wow! I am going to be deeply honest, I don’t ever want to say those words. Funny, I knew exactly what Charles was talking about. I realized in my own life, that a person, referring to I, could go through four years of college, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion, and not know Christ. I am not talking about history, or theology, I can quote the best of them, but I am talking about good ole’, I know that I know, Christ!

Could I tell you what makes God smile? yes, hypothetically, I could, but do I really know what children’s laughter and play does to him? What makes Him sad? What is His favorite color, does He even have one particular color or just loves all the colors He made?

The seven elements that Charles Stanley refers to in his article are : Salvation, Scripture, Sharing, Suffering, Stretching (your limitations), Solitude, and Service. The book of Hebrews explains that mature believers have their senses trained because of practice. (Hebrews 5:12-14). Looking at your life through the eyes of God, thinking, and putting to use the traits that He gives us, of sharing some of the same attributes.

It is up to me, Christ is standing there with open arms, How long will I make Him wait until His arms get tired? The best part of God is His arms never get tired, he never draws weary! I am running to Him before I trip, I know that I am safe in His loving arms, and I am growing with Him, and it’s a beautiful experience.
