The Eternal Goal

By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because
you have done this thing...I will bless you....
Genesis 22:16, 17

It is through the discipline of obedience that I
get to the place where Abraham was and I see
who God is. God will never be real to me 
until I come face to face with Him in Christ.
Then I will know and can boldly proclaim, "In 
all the world, my God, there is none but Thee, 
there is none but Thee." (OC)

Reader, this morning I woke up singing,

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely
In the light of His glory and grace."

He is our source of victorious living. He and His
resurrection power indwell us. I cannot be fully
obedient without His life pouring through me, so
I say, "Lord, live your life through me as I write
this blog, steer my car through this traffic, become
reconciled with my friend."--
We have more than Abraham ever had!
