Lord, I wan’t to know you.
Robert Lewis once wrote “We could not make sense of the New Testament in particular, or Christianity in general, without its central figure—Jesus Christ. Christianity is not a philosophy or an ethic, but a person: Christianity is Christ. But neither can we make sense of Christ himself without His cross.”
Jesus, to know you is to know your cross. Here I come, I draw near to it’s jagged edges, I feel them on my cheek, its weight on my back.
Lord, I want to know you.
