Sep 10, 2018: Beholding God

Robert E. Webber

To behold him is to see him in all his splendor, to fall down before him, to worship him and acknowledge that he and he alone is God. . . . Once we have beheld God, we are in a position to listen to him. He wants to communicate to us, to speak to us, to wrap us up into his arms and gift us with this love and guidance. But we can’t receive all he has for us unless we give him a listening heart and ear. When we behold him, he prepares us to listen to his voice [and] his loving will for our lives.
