OUR PASSION FOR HIM. . .?
BY: JOHN R. GAVAZZONI
We stubbornly cling to the notion that we will still find a key there [Scripture] that will give us full entrance into the heart of God and WE ARE WRONG IN THAT HOPE. It can go no further than declare that ”…the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (Jn. 1:14), and that in Him we are ”the fullness of Him that filleth all in all.” (Eph. 1:23) So in the light of that final Word of scripture, standing on the highest peak it offers, what do we do brethren, HAVE ANOTHER BIBLE STUDY?
When we climb the highest peak of biblical revelation and there find ourselves resplendent in His glory, what do we do, take another course in Greek and Hebrew?
When on that peak we hear the Word, ”In Him dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily and ye are complete in Him” (Col. 2:9), what shall we do? Shall we bring to God a fresh offering of our yearning that He do a greater work in us because we are so lacking before Him?
Slowly but surely, the Spirit of God has laid upon me the prohibition against my coming to him with the passion of my yearning for fullness when He has declared me full and complete in His Son. He said to me, ”I don’t need your passion, I have enough for both of us and I have seen the travail of my soul and I am satisfied. Away with the burnt offerings of your piety, it is as nothing when seen in the light of my burning love.”
