2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Paul is telling Timothy that there is a real danger of making learning, studies and understanding a focus and not the relationship.
In closing yesterday I encouraged you to understanding what you will be committing to if you should choose to enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ. He is Truth and learning, and belief does not allow you to come to knowing truth that is only formed in commitment to relationship.
From the very beginning I said there has to be a recognition, an acceptance and a choice. Learning can be seen as recognition, belief can be seen as acceptance, and that leaves you with commitment which is choice.
Yearning for knowledge is not yearning for Jesus. Much in the same way that you might express a longing for a life partner and your heart will burst if you cannot have them, this yearning for a relationship with Jesus Christ can only be satisfied by accepting Him for all He is, all He did and all He wants to do for you in relationship. He wants to fill that emptiness in your broken and contrite heart.
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
This is relationship, eating of the bread, which as of old is a sign of a covenant contract. That door of entering is your heart.
That is a choice you have to make with your heart by faith.
