And I think about it, I really do! I squint out my window and see the sun rising and consider getting up and out there to revel in all that beauty; and then close my eyes and go back to sleep.
Looking back at my bedroom windows it was hard to believe the sun could even reach into those little glass rectangles waaaaay back there; but it had, faithfully for weeks, and that was the reason I was now engrossed in the panorama around me.
I think it’s similar with the Son. He calls to us to come closer, to know Him more deeply. He calls repeatedly yet we’re too busy, or tired, or just don’t think we’ve got it in us to make the effort but the there is the time we come.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
