All I can think about tonight is my king, and what He he did for us more than 2,000 years ago. This year, more than ever before, I am moved by every mention of Jesus. I'm moved by His mercy, His grace, His perfectness in a sin filled world.
And I am truly in awe of the way that He works. No, I don't completely understand Him, and I won't until the day I see His face.
But I see Him work over and over again in our lives, doing only things that He can do in ways only He can do them. And my prayer tonight, is that you come to know Him more than just casually. I knew Him casually for far too long.
I really wanted to be on fire for God. I wanted to have passion flowing out of me. I wanted to be plugged in and a part of all He was doing, but I don't think I was willing to believe Him. I don't think I knew how to believe Him. And more than anything, I think I was scared.
What if I really got to know Him, and He wasn't who I thought He was going to be? What if He didn't hold all the answers? What if I got to know Him, and I was still full of fear and doubt? Then what?
I don't know how I feel so in love. I don't know when I went head over heels. I prayed for it for a long time, and finally I feel. I feel in love with the one who saved me, with the one who died for me, with the one who wants nothing more from me than for me to believe by faith that He is God. I got rid of my selfish pride, and let His righteousness reign over me.
And you can too. You can love Him the way you've always wanted to. You can serve Him and His people the way He asks us to. You can be all He created you to be.....and all you have to do is know Him.
