I'm currently reading the book "Why Jesus?" by Ravi Zacharias.  Ravi quotes the first verse of a hymn called "Himself" that was written by Albert B. Simpson.  
"Once it was the blessing, Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling, Now it is His Word;
Once His gifts I wanted, Now the Giver own,
Once I sought for healing, Now Himself alone."
See the difference between the two contrasting themes?
Once describes a self-centered person.  Now describes
a God centered person.  Which type of person are you?
Are you pursuing God for your own Benefit or are you
pursuing God for who He is?
