Calculated to Thrill

JI Packer writes in Knowing God that, “Knowing God is a relationship that is calculated to thrill a person’s heart.” As I listened to chapter three yesterday, it struck me that most of us (and most of me) don’t think about knowing God as a particularly thrilling undertaking.

But why not?

As Jonathan Edwards would say, is there any characteristic of God that is not infinitely exhilarating? Is there any need in our hearts that He cannot meet and then exceedingly overflow with His glorious nature?

“Knowing God is a relationship that is calculated to thrill a person’s heart.” Do you believe it?
