Deep Calls Unto Deep
God is looking for more, God is calling us deeper. He is looking for more of His children. There are things of the Spirit we will never be able to search out if we are content with surface Christianity.
“Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.”
Galatians 4:1-2 NKJV
We have a choice in this relationship with God to live like slaves, to live as servants, to simply be given directives and obey. Choosing that won’t make you miss heaven, but you could miss all God has for you if you become content with the least of all God has to offer.
The question is knowing that there is so much more for you in the House of God do you want less than you have the authority and access to.
Like I said last week we often come to Christ not out of a desire to do His will but out of a need or something we are looking for. Often we meet God in a transactional matter. The bible says “…the heart of man is desperately wicked.” We have a tendency to think of self more than we do of others, and God will take you as you are, but in place of relationship He is looking for us to mature, to grow, for our hearts to change from thinking of self, to desiring the things of His Kingdom more than the our personal gain.
Maturity in the things of God isn’t decided by how long you have been a Christian, but by how deeply you search out relationship with Him, do you tarry in His presence? Desire to know Him more? Unlike the human body that grows with or without your consent, your heart and Spirit grow through time spent and intentional action.
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
I Corinthians 13:11 NKJV
You don’t mature by accident but through intentionality. You decide you want more, you decide to let go of childish things. You decide you don’t just want to get by, God wants to birth in us a desire for more, to know to fullness of all He has and who He is and who we are in Him.
God is the unsearchable God, there is so much more to Him, you were saved and you have witnessed His grace, does your heart desire that everyone else gets to witness that same saving grace.
“As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.”
Psalms 42:1 NKJV
God is waiting, waiting for us to desire Him the way He desires us, to want more of Him, He says, ‘He who lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives freely.’ Are you ready to search out the deep truths of God?
