I have always been amazed at people’s fascination with famous people. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand the lengths some people will go just to get near someone who is famous. We have all seen the videos of people swooning over the “stars”. We have all heard stories from friends like, “guess who I got to meet at such and such event” and then they name some movie star or athlete, obviously excited about their encounter. While I don't neccessarily understand it, I realize that it is a reality, and many people get excited about the opportunity to meet a famous person.
Taking it a step further and this is something I can relate to, how about the opportunity to meet someone of real power like the President of the United States? Now that would be an honor wouldn’t it? Something we would surely tell all our friends about. Something we would probably tell for years to come. We would share our experience of the time we got to sit down and meet the POTUS.
While that would be a great honor and a privilege, we are blessed with an even greater privilege. We are able to “meet” with, talk to, walk with, and enter into the presence of the God of this Universe. Think about that. Let it soak in. We can go daily into the presence of the King of Kings, The Lord of Lords, the Creator of Heaven and Earth! I don’t know about you but that excites me. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by, meet with God, fellowship with HIM, and then tell your friends about the wonderful experience.
