Pastor Tim Keller says, “To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God.” This is the heart behind our Fully Known and Wholly Loved Collection … for our identity to be born out of the unconditional love of our Maker, and our love for others to shine out from the overflow of that love.
O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Psalm 139:1-5
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
