Day 49: Worship Thought – “Passion”

There is a word used over and over to define a biblical relationship with God – “know”.

This word is poorly understood to be a “knowledge”. The word actually is the same word that refers to the intimacy of a husband and wife in the marriage bed. There is no stronger word that reflects the depth of human relationship than the biblical understanding of “knowing” God.

This word should breathe into our worship several factors:

  • passion – governs the depth of the experience between the lover and the loved
  • desire – is the drawing together of two hearts so that when they are separated for any length of time, the longing to be together cause the ones separated to ache for each other.
  • intimacy – is the focus between the lovers so that all the outside commotion, influences and trappings fade as they are lost in each other’s embrace.

Paul takes this to a whole new level when in Philippians 3:10 “I want to know Christ in the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings“.
