Curiosity. Secrecy. The “need” to know. When it comes to needing (wanting) to know information, I believe there are two kinds of people in the world – those that want to know and those that are OK with waiting … the kids that want to open presents immediately or wait until Christmas morning.
As we head into “The Weekend That Changes Everything” here at Journey Church, I’ve been reminded over and over during the past few days that whichever category we fall into, we have a hard time fighting that tendency. There have been numerous times over the past 10 days that Journey staff have been pulled aside by somebody that saw the preview video and asked to spill the beans. “Oh, come on. I won’t tell anybody. What’s it all about?” While others are simply excited to mark the date on the calendar, show up at church and hear the big news.
So why do we have this “need” to know? What is it inside a person that drives them to wanting to know versus being OK with waiting? I believe it is our desire to understand, the desire to know the unknown, the desire to uncover the mystery. And what is the biggest mystery in the universe. That’s right … it’s our God, the maker of the stars and the seas, the one whose mysteries are more than our minds can possibly fathom. But still we strive to know more; he calls us to that.
Colossians 2:2-3 says this: “My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
That is our prayer for you. As you come to Journey this weekend to hear the incredible news that we have to share with you, our hope is that you be encouraged, become more united, feel the love of Jesus and this community. AND that the mysteries of God become revealed to you more and more every day.
I know this news is going to bless your life. Treasures await us, friends. Be there!
