I believe that the vast majority of Christians do things to "seek God," ^but we have no real idea why we are doing them. Many of us go to church on Sundays ^because that's what we do in our culture, because it's the Baptist, Presbyterian, ^Evangelical, or Church of Christ thing to do. We spend our time reading the Bible ^and praying because that is what "good Christians" do. We do these things because ^we were raised to do them, because we want to be better people, because we want ^to improve our marriages, because we want our children to have a good foundation ^for life. Well, is this so wrong? Not at all. Desiring these things is healthy and ^right. But, and you knew a but was coming, they should never be our primary purpose ^for going to church, reading our Bibles, or praying. When we approach God with these ^things as our primary motivation, we actually walk away from our so-called spiritual ^experiences unchanged and without a revelation of the sacred. Our desire and prayer, ^instead, should be to get a vision of God so overwhelming that we can do nothing ^but get on our faces before Him. When that happens, everything else will dissolve ^and the glory of the living God will come into view.
A drink of cool water for thirsty souls.

Simple. Direct. Relevant. ^Biblical. Mac Brunson's book is like his preaching and his person. Anyone ^who reads this will enjoy a return to the simple, great, and lofty presentation ^of the old-time religion of the person of Jehovah. Mac will bless you.
