"God gives us more and more grace and peace as [we] grow
in [our] knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord" (2 Peter 1:2).
Over the years, our relationship with Jesus changes. At first, it's intense; everything is new. (Even old Bible stories take on new meaning!) But as time goes on, we become more comfortable with Him. Our passion doesn't lessen, and we learn new things, but there is a resting and familiar understanding.
