Awakening. That seems to be the word in my mouth, and on my brain lately. Not just because of the fact that it is a powerful new anthem of the Christian faith – written by Chris Tomlin. ( We sang it at Student Life Camp, in the van, in the hotel, and now we’ll be singing it in FUEL) Awakening is the word that is on my mind because I see it.
I see it in the generation that is coming. I see the thirst for something more. I see the passion to live for something greater than ourselves in them. I see a sense of clarity in our students that God is greater and stronger – that there is NONE that compares to HIM. I can see that they ‘get it’ because they see that Christ is supposed to be more than a part of their lives – they see that Christ is to BE their lives.
I believe Awakening comes from the ability to see what others cannot see. There has to be a revelation, maybe we’re more comfortable saying an illumination – of who God is. Accumulating facts about God seems to have been the goal in the past – not anymore. Seeing and knowing God is the goal now.
Awakening…that’s what we need. We’ve hit the snooze button enough. It’s time to Awaken, Fully Alive to God’s Glory.
