There are a few point I occasionally return to. This is one of them that I sense needs repeated:
The path of seeking to know God, not just believing he exists, can be very lonely. Few care to walk these barren steps and the further we go the more barren they often seem to become. Yet the reward is not only eternal. Those who venture into this wilderness will find a place where perhaps millions await who have also walked this path, and the kinship with each will be closer than any relationship we find here on earth.
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” – Apostle Paul, to the church at Corinth, 1 Corinthians 13:12
“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” – Apostle John, 1st John 3:2
“But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.” Christ, my Savior, Matthew 7:14
