A Midnight Talk With His Friend

3/11/2006

from a young man here (CA) .....having a midnight talk with his Friend

Wow! I’m taken back by You Jesus.

You are more Real to me

Than all the ideas or philosophies about You.

I thought I had to Focus on

Your words,

Your actions,

Your life lived on earth,

Your ideas.

Wrong.

YOU LIVE! You have cares! And feelings!

And desires!  And hope!  And love!

Why would anyone go and learn all about someone by

books,

movies,

documentaries,

music,

dramas,

biographies,

when they had the opportunity to meet the Person?!

You are a Person, Who loves me!

Why?

Because You care about me, and have hope and assurance that

I am going to be like You!

I don’t want to learn about You!

I want to learn from You!

I don’t want to hear about You!

I want to hear You!

Why would I have lunch and think about You,

when I could have lunch with You!

I don’t want to live for You.

I want to live with You.

You are opening my eyes.

You’re not some ‘thing’ to do!

Or attend! Or think about once in a while!

You’re ALIVE!

I WANT TO BE WITH YOU!

Not off doing whatever!

What a waste to be away from You!

In You there is perfect

meaning,

purpose,

direction,

Love.

I never want to leave again.

I won’t make it alone.

I’ll die alone.

I hate my selfishness!

My pride, my arrogance!

My lusts!

My wicked heart!

My habitual sin!

THEY DIE HERE!

I LOVE time with You. It’s a gift!

It’s You giving me a second chance with You!

WOW!

WHY?

WHO KNOWS THE DEPTHS OF YOUR LOVE?

It’s not the idea that saves.

Not the commands.

Not the righteous acts.

Not the principles.

Not the concepts.

It’s ALL about the LOVE!

The LIGHT!

The WAY!

The One Who gave me another shot at Life

when I threw mine away!

It’s not within the reach of the mind.

Nor is it in sound doctrine.

YOU are the TRUTH!

Teach me Your glorious ways so

I can be like You.

I know what I need.

It’s nothing creation can offer

IT’S JESUS!!!

Thank You, Jesus.

Thank You!
