two important goals

There are two goals that I want to pursue in life:

GOAL 1:  I want to love God.  Growing up in a Christian home, I’ve found that the only motivation that can keep me connected to God in a healthy way is love – to let myself experience His love for me and then respond to Him with love.  Love is a topic of immense proportions and various intrepretations.  But I believe that the only genuine love that we can know is Who God is – He is love.  Along this line, I cannot love God, if I do not love the people around me.  I believe that loving others is giving God the freedom to express Himself through me and this is one of the ways that I can love God.  Loving God keeps my motives right.

GOAL2:  I want to know God.  This is indeed a lofty goal, similar to my 1st goal.  How can a finite know The Infinite?  Nevertheless, there are many occassions and verses in the Bible about knowing God – who He is, how He moves, what His values & priorities are, different ways He communicates, . . . . .  I believe that God wants to make Himself known to us and each day gives us a fresh opportunity to learn more about who God is – Incarnate in a finite world.  The most grounded way to know God is through His Word and knowing God through His Word keeps my doctrine immunized from heresy 🙂

So join me in this adventure of knowing and loving God in the contexts of our daily living.

One thought on “two important goals

  1. Hi Sarah, I was watching your program today, and heard you mention, you have a blog. Curious, I looked you up and found you are on WordPress. I would love to see your blog more, but I don’t see a subscribers link here. To get your messages? Anyway, Praying God will also bless you, as you go to the Taffi Dollar conference. I would have loved to go myself. They are also a ministry, I like keeping up with as well.

    But oh well anyway. Thanks for your contributions. I hope to hear more from you…..

    In Christ,

    Elena Ramirez
