Ps 63:8 "My soul followeth hard after thee"

Psa 42.1 "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God."

Have you lost sight of life after Salvation?

Many become at ease in Zion, once the issue of heaven and hell is resolved.

Definition of Eternal Life

Joh 17:3 "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

Salvation is not just being safe

It is knowing Jesus, personally.
To know Him personally, you must go after Him.

Go after God - Seek Him

Psa 63.1  "O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is"

Seek, praise, bless, remember, meditate

Programs detract from actually knowing God.

Programs make worship shallow, predictable, and infrequent

Go after God - Let Him be our Part or Share

Nu 18:20 "And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel."

Go after God - Let Him be sufficient for you

2Co 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
