Something Better

Occasionally, (or more often than that) I anticipate sharing from whatever I’m reading. Today’s quote comes from my current study on the book of Hebrews — “Hoping For Something Better“, by Nancy Guthrie —

“God does not intend for us to wear ourselves out with meaningless religious activity, filling ourselves with theology, working for him but never knowing what it is to enjoy knowing him and being known by him.”

    Amen. God is our treasure. We don’t find joy in convincing ourselves we’ve done enough good or gained enough of his favor by our works. What we do is a helpless byproduct of how much we’ve made him our portion. Good stuff.
