I shared a quote on my Facebook & Twitter today from C.S. Lewis-"I don't want my image of God, I want God." While that quote sounds good, and it is easy to "like" it, we might want to be a little careful of what we wish for.
When God reveals who He is to us, we cannot remain the same. God is not someone to be trifled with. He is compassionate and loving, but also great and powerful. The honest truth is that an interaction with God will ruin us for this life as we start to see the potential of life with Him. There are no stories of people coming into contact with God and remaining the same.
Scripture is clear that when we honestly seek God, He will reveal Himself to us. Once we see ourselves in His light we can't reconcile who we once were with who we need to be. We are faced with a choice-to allow Him to change us into a new creation or to turn our back on Him and follow a path that will ultimately lead to our own destruction.
