Asbury College Summer Assembly 1993, 3 of 3
"Isn’t it interesting we use the word know to express the most intimate relationship between a husband and a wife. God wants to know us, and wants to know us intimately, personally and so he says, you need to walk with me. Now if you understood what I am saying, there is a hardly a person anywhere who can’t look back in his own life, somewhere, where the witness was given and you chose not to see it, and so you found darkness and disillusionment and despair, but there were other days when the witness was there and you said, maybe I had better pay attention to that, and you did, and as you did a way began to open, and you noticed the darkness was turning to light, and then you found in the middle of it, the Living God Himself. Now of course, the catch is, he is the one who looks at us and says, Follow Me. What does he want me to follow him in, climbing the ladder? No, making the descent. And I am convinced that that is the heart of the holiness experience - when we get to the place where we are ready to follow him in total self sacrifice. And when we do, the astounding thing is we find that we haven’t lost anything; we find then that we have gained everything that counts."
