Take All of Me

i-am-the-vine

“If (we) hope to produce work that will bear good fruit, we must draw our life from the true source – our living Savior. He is real. He is present. But all too often we reduce him to an abstraction, giving him intellectual assent, but not our hearts.” ~Michael O’Brien

Karl Barth, one of the great philosopher-theologians of the 20th Century, was asked after a lecture at the University of Chicago in 1962 if he could sum up his life’s work in a single sentence. “Yes,” he replied: “‘Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.’”

Take all of me, Lord.

    So very true! Giving ourselves requires giving our hearts. And it is scary to give it to God because all of our hidden places are open. It’s not about God, it’s about facing ourselves that hurts. Great post!

    I agree God tells people through scripture that he knows your needs and wants all we have to do is ask but like a father sometimes the answer might be no not because he doesn’t want you to have he knows that if it will take you from him then you shouldn’t be upset you can’t take it to heaven anyway remember that.
