Progressive Revelation

Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.  -Franz Kafka

Recently I bought an iPhone, and I was excited about it the moment I bought it.  Over time as I’ve learned about its various functions—iCal that allows Gmail to sync the calendars on my iPhone and Mac, and Evernote that keeps my notes on both—my appreciation for the iPhone has deepened.  It’s a progressive revelation of what the iPhone is and why I need it even more.  Likewise we are saved the moments we give our lives to Christ.  When God saved me I loved Him with all that I am, the best way that I knew how.  Over time this love only grows as I gain a progressive revelation of Who Christ is and what He can do in and through my life.  I need Christ now more than ever, and as I learn to depend on Him, He becomes more beautiful every day.  No matter where you are in your relationship with Christ, resolve today that you will learn to depend on Him even more; just see how because of this your love for Him deepens.    

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength (Deuteronomy 6:5, NIV).
