Building up believers and the New Testament church

The Cost of Knowing God

"None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all shall know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them" (Hebrews 8:11). This is God's promise to us under the new covenant, sealed by the blood of Jesus Christ. The door has been opened by God to all who will come and drink of the water of life. The promise is that all may know God. We may know Him closely, in a personal way, in intimate communion. Christ has paid the price, and there is no hindrance. Why then do not all men know God? If the price has been paid, what hinders us?

There must be an answer, since it is obvious that most men do not know God or even have a desire to know God. Is there a price yet to be paid? As we address this question, it is our prayer that we may consider carefully God's provision and our response to His provision, that we may all know God together.
