God Is Irresistible

“The more you know God, the more you love Him.” I hear this phrase quite often from the people I Pastor. What they are communicating is the irresistible nature of God. There is a powerful pull upon our hearts when we begin to see Him for who He really is. It makes Him irresistible to the hungry and “living water” to the thirsty (Jn 4:10).

David  said… “Oh God You are my God, early will I seek You. My soul thirsts for You, My flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.” (Ps 63:1-3)

The high calling of Christianity is to know Christ intimately. To know Christ is to know the Father (Jn 14:9). Knowing Him is not about what we do for Him, but about our pursuit of Him. Our aim is for a spiritual relationship that gives us life, releases fullness of joy and establishes peace that rises above our understanding.

Our problem seems to be that somewhere along the way we stopped following Him and began to follow doctrine and traditions of man. We became “churchy” and religious; rather than friends and co-laborers. We need a heart-rending revival of intimacy that calls us back to behold the face of Jesus. To recover our first love, we must look into the eyes that captured our hearts in the beginning.

God is irresistible, beyond any human definition and we who have come to love Him have no better place to be than in His Presence. Early we shall seek Him and consistently we shall follow.

“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to enquire in his temple.” (Psa 27:4)
