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.
