Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
(I Chronicles 29:11)
Yesterday I went to see Tim Keller speak at Park Street Church in Boston. I don't like to use words like "transformational" and "life-changing", but a couple of things he said as he spoke to a group of pastors certainly were. Actually, "humbling" and maybe even "humiliating" might be better. I won't cheapen the experience by writing about it here. I just wanted to put down a marker so I'd know when it was. I so want to go beyond knowing God. I want to experience God. I want to find -- just once in my life -- what I've told people for years, that he's all I need. I haven't been giving him what is really due him, and I'm tired of it.
