"To Know More"
Because God is an eternal Being, and because "His understanding is infinite," what we know about Him causes us to realize how much more we need to know (Psalm 90:2; 147:5).
Certainly, we can know our Lord and his truth well enough to walk with Him in Christ-empowered faith and faithfulness. The light of Scripture more than illuminates our way regarding how we access our Lord's grace to consistently trust and obey Him. "His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue" (II Peter 1:3). The fact that we can never know all does not mean we cannot know enough to face our present challenges. "The path of the just is as the shining light, which shineth more and more unto the perfect day" (Proverbs 4:18).
However, it remains true that every new ray of God's light arrives with the promise that more are coming. We will need more, of course, both in this life and in the life to come. Presently, the challenges of life never wane. As time passes, our conflicts may change in their nature and measure. But they keep coming. Thus, the light must continue - which it does - as hopefully will our reception - which it must. Regarding God and His truth, the Christian never reaches a place where we fold our tents, retreat within, and close our eyes to the bright stars of Christ meant to shine upon us until we leave this present world (and then forevermore).
We know some. We can know more. But we can never know all. We give thanks for the first point, and acknowledge the third. But we live in the second. An infinite God calls to our hearts and minds, beckoning to come ever further, soar ever higher, and swim ever deeper into His Person and truth. Indeed, let us hear the echoes of the ancient command to the prophet, and then respond in humility and confidence…
"Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
