we serve an epic God

I don't know if you guys know this, but we serve a pretty epic God.

We serve a God who's nature is love. His nature is mercy. His first reaction is forgiveness.

We serve a God who's grandeur is indescribable. Who's power causes us to fall flat on our face in awe. Who's longing for us would hurt our hearts if we truly felt it.

I heard a powerful truth from Leslie Ludy recently. She said (paraphrasing), "We can only know true intimacy with God when we fully trust Him."

There's so much truth to that statement. Just as true sexual intimacy can be had only when both sides of the marriage know that there's no judgement, doubt, or potential break up, so we can fully come to God when we completely trust Him. Only then can we really do life with Him, walk with Him, and know Him fully.

And who wouldn't want to know such a great God?
