Have you ever prayed, “Lord, I want to go deeper with You….I want don’t want to stay where I am. I want to grow and move forward and run after You with a heart abandoned to You and You alone. I want to go deeper……”
I’ve prayed that many times…but I have to wonder if I really knew what I was praying? Let’s have a look at the word DEEP.
DEEP: 1. Extending far down from the top or the surface
So when I look at this definition, I have to ask myself these questions….Have I really even left the surface yet? What does it really mean to go deeper with Christ?
When I think about going deeper and leaving the surface, I can’t help but think about all that I could be missing when I stay at the surface.
Picture yourself in the ocean. You can’t see much at the surface of the water. You can’t experience much if your just floating that the top…now dive down, dive in. I’m sure it’s scary at first because of the unknown. What will I encounter beneath the surface? And sure it’s even uncomfortable for a little while because the further you go down into the ocean, the more pressure you feel in your ears and in your head. But wow….what a whole new world. Look around, see all the beauty that lies beneath the surface that you never would have seen if you didn’t dive in and go deeper.
Just like diving down into the ocean, we need to dive down into Christ’s unfailing , unconditional love. We need to dive down past the surface of just reading His Word and start to really live out His Word.
Friends, this message is for me and I just really wanted to share it with you. I know that I need to move past the surface of what I see in this world and dive in and really explore Jesus to the fullest. I have a feeling I’m missing so much. I’m ready to move forward. I’m ready to dive in.
Who’s with me?? Let’s go!
