I WANT IT ALL!!! Yes, I know what the Bible says about greed -- not good. But I want it all. Not some. Not half. ALL: the whole, entire, total amount, quantity, or extent of.
So listen up. Here is what I want:
ASSURANCE: the state of being sure or certain about something
BLESSED: having a sacred nature: connected with God
FORGIVENESS: overlook fault
GRACE: unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification -- a virtue coming from God
LOVE: an assurance of affection
PAYMENT: something that is given to someone in exchange for something else
PATIENCE: the ability to wait for a long time without becoming annoyed or upset
PEACE: a state of tranquility or quiet
UNDERSTANDING: the power of comprehending;
Oh, my goodness. The list of things I want is so long you would quit reading if I listed them all.
I WANT IT ALL
I want to be certain that I am connected with God and that He will overlook my faults (aka sins). I want God's divine assistance and the assurance of His affection. I want to accept the blood that was given in exchange for my sins. I want to be able to wait for God's direction without being annoyed or upset. I want to feel the state of tranquility and have the power to comprehend all God has waiting for me.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What about you? Are you asking God for only a few things? OR Do you want it all?
