To move beyond adolescent enthusiasm and into a deep experience with God, an undivided heart is absolutely necessary. This means answering some direct questions with unblinking honesty:
- Who am I?
- What’s going to be at the center of my life?
- Where is my loyalty going to lie?
God is looking for the man who knows who he is and who will not be afraid to identify with Him. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah, as He is called in the Old Testament, seeks lionhearted sons.
The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. (2 CHRONICLES 16:9, NLT)
