In the search for romance in this life, in the seemingly endless search for fulfillment it is easy to become blinded to the One who fills all things, and our minds either scoff at the "backwards" idea of a creator or cannot comprehend nor accept a love that loves not in spite of our weaknesses but because of them. Paul was driven to follow after this One, to apprehend that for which he was apprehended, considering everything else to be worth nothing compared with the excellency of knowing this man, Jesus Christ. This is not the doctrine that I have received of a church, it is not the product of a theologian or religious figure- it is not the product of a man's attempt to reach out to the unknown, but the Unknown's attempt to reach out to a man, for the Unknown desires greatly that He be made known.
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." 1 John 4:8
