But that gift of grace involves the gift of a new heart. New desires. Ne longings. For the first time, we want God. We see our need for Him, and we love Him. We seek after Him, and we find Him, and we discover that He is indeed the great reward of our salvation. We realize that we are not saved just to be forgiven of our sins or to be assured of our eternity in Heaven, but we are saved to know God. So we yearn for Him. We want Him so much that we abandon everything else to experience Him. This is the only proper response to the revelation of God in the gospel. Radical, by David Platt

Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides You. Psalm 73:25
