Longing, Sensing, Tasting, Relishing, Esteeming…

How would you describe your disposition towards Christ?

“The way that grace seems sometimes first to appear after a [humbling of someone before God’s righteousness], is in earnest longings of soul after God and Christ, to know God, to love him, to be humbled before him, to have communion with Christ in his benefits…”

This desire for Christ and God comes from…

“a sense of the superlative excellency of divine things, with a spiritual taste and relish of ’em, and esteem of ’em as their highest happiness and best portion.”

What are you considering to be your highest happiness and best portion today?
