Him

reverence -
a feeling or attitude of deep respect tinged with awe; veneration.

We are to have reverence for God: His commands, His words, His heart, His thoughts. All of who He is. Revered. Respected. Venerated.

We are to love God: His commands, His words, His heart, His thoughts. All of who He is. Loved. Honored. Adored.

Everything. All that He is.
With everything. All that we are.

Not a thing kept or held back for ourselves; not a single thought or word of His rejected.

Nothing for us; all of Him adored.

There is no half-heartedness in this adventure -- not if you have met Him and truly understood Him. When we meet Him and understand we become women like the Luke 7 woman.
Then he [Jesus] turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little."
Until we see our sin and experience His forgiveness, we will not love Him fully. And we must love Him fully. There is no other way to know victory, peace, and -- dare I say it? -- greatness in God.

Love Him. Ache to please Him, to bless Him, to bring Him joy. Adore Him. Weep with tears of love and wipe His feet.

Remember your sin. You, oh woman, have much sin. You, oh woman, are nothing but what He Himself created. You, oh woman, have nothing to boast in apart from Him, and no answer for your weakness apart from Him. Everything you have to offer is His, and everything you need is in Him.

And He gives it all freely. We now should, can, and must choose to return that love. That, oh woman, is joy -- pure joy!

Oh, please -- love Him today. He is so, so wonderful.

God is so awe inspiring. Knowing Him leaves me with that lovely comfy feeling like being wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket in front of a fireplace. Thank you for shring. Life is so wonderful when you know Jesus.
