The best Part about Knowing God.

The bible teaches that the best and final gift of God’s love is the enjoyment of God’s beauty.  “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that I will seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple (Ps. 27:4).”  The best and final gift of the gospel is that we gain Chris. “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.  For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ (Phil 3:8).”  God is the Gospel, p. 11; italicized mine.
