Accepting His Offer

By Brooke

what-if-we-offered-him

“It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” –C.S. Lewis

What would happen if we were to go before the Lord, and offer Him our fullest selves, not holding back what we asked of Him, but believing Him for the deepest desires of our hearts. Believing Him to show us who we really are in Christ, and to reveal the lies that we have believed as truth? What if we got real and dropped the mask that doubles as a veil, keeping us from the fullness of redemption and invited the Holy Spirit to come and have His way with our hearts?

The veil that kept us from the Lord Almighty has already been torn. Let us now remove the veil that we so often hold up in an effort to keep Him from seeing what has already been entrusted into His hands at the moment of our salvation.

We have access to the throne room. Let’s go there, with no rope around our ankles or waists. With no exit strategy or planned escape. Just enter in as simply as we can manage, allowing the focus to shift from us to God so we can fully experience His grace. Let’s accept the long-standing offer for a day at the sea instead of continuing to meander in the muck.
