The Highest Science

So let us learn about God and come to know God in the fullest,biblical sense. Jesus encouraged us to do this when he said,"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls" (Mt.11:28-29). This is true wisdom for everyone. It is the special duty and privilege of the Christian. What is the proper course of study for one who is a child of God? Is it not God himself? There are other worthwhile areas of learning, it is true. But the highest science, the most mind-expanding area of all is the Godhead. Spurgeon once wrote:

There is something exceedingly improving to the mind in a contemplation of the Divinity. It is a subject so vast, that all our thoughts are lost in it's immensity; so deep, that our pride is drowned in it's infinity. Other subjects we can comprehend and grapple with; in them we feel a kind of self-content, and go on our way with the thought, "Behold I am Wise." But when we come to this Master-science, finding that our plumb-line cannot sound it depth, and that our eagle eye cannot see it's height, we turn away with the ...solemn exclamation, "I am but of yesterday and know nothing."... But while the subject humbles the mind, it also expands it.... Nothing will so enlarge the intellect, nothing so magnify the whole soul of man, as a devout, earnest, continuing investigation of the great subject of the Deity.

Every Christian should confidently pursue this goal. God has promised that those who seek him will find him. To those who knock, the door shall be opened.
