Tons of my friends and family are professionals that know a great deal about so many things that I have no clue about. They have worked hard, studied, spent countless hours absorbing all of the knowledge that they could about the crafts and professions they have taken on so that they can hone the skills necessary to produce a quality of life for others.
As Christians we read scripture, we attend church services, we serve in different capacities and feel as if we are growing and attaining a closer walk and relationship with God yet I feel there is so much more beyond the surface we are living on. If we only knew the true depth of His love for us, The power of the blood of Christ and what it has accomplished and continues to do every day. If we only knew the meaning of being clothed in His righteousness, of being covered by His wings of protection and mercy or the peace that goes beyond human understanding.
Each thing we read in scripture is more than superficial, it has a root and foundation that goes throughout creation and into the throne of God. God is so amazing in His creativity, His wisdom, His love, His mercy, His judgements, His laws, His healing and His promises. Inside I feel as if we are only barely scratching the surface when it comes to being totally submitted and open to God living and working in us.
Can you imagine the power that could explode from us if that depth of who God is and what He offers would suddenly completely open our hearts, eyes, love, compassion and understanding?? There could be no end to that statement Christ made when He said “These things (how He lived and what He accomplished) and Greater shall YOU do!”
If we only knew…
