Justin Taylor quotes JI Packer, CS Lewis and scripture on the importance of God knowing us. Lewis:
I read in a periodical the other day that the fundamental thing is how we think of God. By God Himself, it is not! How God thinks of us is not only more important, but infinitely more important. Indeed, how we think of Him is of no importance....
I am struck yet again at how a life with God is about God, not us.

I love that line, "how we think of Him is of no importance," yet how much time do we spend trying to understand God. How many internecine wars have we fought over "how we think of God" when we should be resting in His presence. How much effort do we we put into getting it right when in the end we never can.

Furthermore, how often do we demand God's attention instead of plead for it? You know, it is not our right - it is His gift.
