"I have seen a limit to all perfection; Your commandment is exceedingly broad" [Psalm 119.96 NASB]
Most of us have been privileged to hear or read the writings of great Christian teachers and expositors. Usually our response is one of wonder and deep appreciation for the revelation of life-changing and practical truths.
We often think, at that time, that we can now understand fully that part of the word until God uses someone else to expound the same passage - and reveals new and practical light on it; and then we are awestruck as we, once again, begin to consider the incredible depth of God's mind.
Even when we peruse on what we have learned and experienced of God, His word, and His ways, we will all freely admit that we are still like babies paddling at the edge of an ocean of limitless knowledge. There is still so much more we do not know and understand - or may not even be capable of comprehending.
When God reveals something to us from the Bible that we did not know, we are often startled and our spirit man catches fire. It is like a light from heaven rests upon us, illuminates God's word, and applies it to our current situation with amazing accuracy.
This impartation of God's knowledge floods our minds with light and we feel ourselves reeling mentally as He gives us just a little glimpse of Himself, His knowledge, and His care of our lives.
In eternity we will receive further insight into different aspects of His work especially in relation to the cross. However, such is God's wisdom and knowledge that even after countless ages we will still only be at the beginning. [David McArdle]
