I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery! Col 2:2-3 (MSG)
How often have you thought, “If I could just have [insert obsession here], then I would be at rest.” Maybe you’ve thought something like that.
Many of us, especially those in ministry, have probably been told in a wilderness period that there are BIG things ahead, if we’ll just press on. It may be true that the Lord will increase and expand your influence in the days to come, but what if it doesn’t happen the way you envision it?
More importantly, what if I told you the next BIG thing won’t even really satisfy us if we’ve missed the greater things that God wants to do within us—that is to root us into the depths and mysteries of Christ.
I don’t want to have any other obsession but Jesus. Only Jesus is BIG enough to fill the desires of the human heart. In the following video, I talk about why our deepest need is to make Christ the next BIG thing.
Have you ever felt restless while you wait for God’s promises? Are you finding that he is enough? Let’s make knowing Jesus central and supreme.
