We Love God!

God: "I looked for someone to take a stand for me, and stand in the gap" (Ezekiel 22:30)

Don't put a question mark where God puts a period.

I want to know Christ

In 1973, my grandfather died of a massive heart attack.  I didn’t get to say goodbye.  To this day, I don’t know if I will see him in Heaven.  This man loved me – he was my favorite grandpa – he showed me how to golf, and how to use hand tools.  My best memories as a child are with him, being held and loved.

Much as I hope I do see my grandpa in Heaven, I don’t control the decisions he made about Jesus as his Savior.  But I do control mine.  I will follow Christ Jesus.

Listen

I know that I know that my life is redeemed
I know I have found what some only have dreamed
I hold in my heart the pearl of great price
Dear God, hear my cry
I want to know Christ

I want to know Christ
I keep Him before me
I lift up my eyes
I drink in His glory
I press toward the goal
His goodness unfolds
March on , oh my soul
I want to know
I want to know Christ

I know that my path is the way of the cross
So I count what I gain and forget what I’ve lost
In pain there is joy
In death there is life
Dear God, hear my cry
I want to know Christ

And the things that entangle me
I lay them down
All the treasures and trophies of life
Let them be lost
Only let me be found in Christ
For I want to know
Yes I want to know
