Higher…

“I was born to love you
In everything that I do
Come take this heart of mine
Make it passionate for you my God

Let me leave all that I know
Come take this heart of mine
Make it passionate for you my God

I need You take me
Just a little bit higher
So I can get closer
To You my God”
~ “Higher” by Frontline Worship

I have loved this song since I first heard it, but it wasn’t until today I really stopped to think of all of the implications of it, and think of what it really means. We were born to love God, in one of their other songs (the title of which escapes me now, which is driving me nuts) they say “I will never hold my worship, the very reason I was created”. How true that is. We worship that which we love most, and we were born to love God, and therefore, we were created to worship him. But we can’t do it on our own, we have to have God make our hearts passionate for him. This passion, love, and worship comes free, but if you put everything you have into it, you have to give up all that you currently love, to pursue this passion for God, but when we do, he takes us so much higher than we have ever been, just so we can enjoy more time with him. God, I want you take my life and take me higher, strip away the other things, so that i can be closer to you…
