Relationship > Knowledge

"God is not interested in us knowing about Him.  God is interested in us knowing Him, from what we know about Him." -Nicolas Ellen

Our knowledge of God should not fill our heads with information that doesn't show up in a changed life, our knowledge should lead to further intimacy with God as He leads us, through good times and bad.  Trials and suffering are to bring us into closer relationship with Him as we lean on Him for all we need in this life.

"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."

John 17:3

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

James 1:2-4
