"I want to know Him." Philippians 3:10
The initiative of the saint is not towards self-realization, but towards knowing
The spiritual saint never believes circumstances to be haphazard,
or thinks of his life as secular and sacred; he sees everything he is dumped
down in as the means of securing the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
There is a reckless abandonment about him.
“Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God . . . took a towel . . . and began to wash the disciples’ feet.”
The aim of the spiritual saint is "that I want to know Him."
