Phil 3:7-11 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ-the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
This song is based on a poem written by Melissa Mooneyham, a poem that expresses her heart's desire for a deeper relationship with the Lord. As believers this should be our heart's cry as well. We need to seek and sustain God's presence in our lives. There needs to be a sense of urgency for us to put aside those things that hinder a deeper relationship with the Lord. A relationship that is far more precious than anything this world has to offer. It's not a matter of want, it's a matter of need. Melissa, like the apostle Paul, recognized this fact. I pray that you do too. We really need to know Him.
