majesty increases faithfulness...

i was reading j.i. packer's knowing god this morning and this quote goes right along with my previous post.

"The Christian's instinct of trust and worship are stimulated very powerfully by knowledge of the greatness of God. But this is a knowledge which Christians today largely lack; and that is one reason why our faith is so feeble and our worship so flabby." (Packer: 83)

i know not the depths of his majesty. no wonder i don't trust him.

i've been spending time focusing on his majesty - his greatness, packer's chapter on majesty has helped point me in the right direction, because to be honest, i don't know where to begin. i am such a baby at this adoration thing.
