What Matters Most

“What matters supremely, therefore, is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact which underlies it: The fact that He knows me. I am graven on the palms of His hands. I am never out of His mind. All my knowledge of Him depends on His sustained initiative in knowing me.

There is tremendous relief in knowing that His love to me is utterly realistic, based at every point on prior knowledge of the worst about me, so that no discovery now can disillusion Him about me, in the way I am so often disillusioned about myself, and quench His determination to bless me.”

– J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p.37.
