While worshiping Jesus at church today tears appeared on my face like dew on tulips in early morning. The sunlight’s tension yearning beyond the night’s cool, causing the droplets. My life’s hopes slamming into the embodiment of hope: Jesus Himself.
I am simply undone by the stirring brightness of Jesus. I can not fathom a better King, a truer lover, nor a deeper friend. I am infinitely thankful I know Him. For Him, I would do anything, go anywhere, and love anyone. My heart longs for the whole world to know Him, to really KNOW Him. He’s it. He really is. He’s the fulfillment, the treasure, the resurrection, and the life. And once you choose to follow Him, you are inseparable. A match made in heaven which will stay in heaven forever.
If you haven’t met Him, if you haven’t chosen to follow Him, you can decide to do so any time. Simply tell Jesus you want to follow Him and tell Him you are giving Him your life. You can talk out loud, if you want. Ask Him to tangibly demonstrate His love to you. Then listen for His direction. He’ll speak. Keep talking to Him- daily, hourly, constantly – chat with Him as you would a friend. He loves you. And the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth. I recommend finding a Bible and reading it: starting with the book of John in the New Testament. It’s really scrumptious. The main thing is keep talking to God AND listen for His response.
(And if you choose to follow Him, let me know. I’ll throw some imaginary confetti and laugh with joy.)
“Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss
compared to the possession
of the priceless privilege
(the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage)
of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord
and of progressively becoming more deeply and
intimately acquainted with Him
[of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him
more fully and clearly].
For His sake I have lost everything
and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs),
in order that I may win (gain) Christ
(the Anointed One)”
Philippians 3:8 (AMP)
