The apostle Paul writes of the joy of seeking and knowing the living God.

I Timothy 4:10 For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.  (NASB)

The apostle is writing to his protégé Timothy about the value of rigorously training himself to live a life that is godly (i.e. set apart to the service of Christ); to schedule regular times to read and study God's Word and pray.  Paul says such a lifestyle comes at a cost: "we . . . labor and suffer reproach".

But there is a reward!  That's the motivation and hope -- to draw near to the living God!  But . . . it requires discipline and intentionality.
