Recently heard a play on this word, intimacy … “in-to-me-see”.
Intimacy – a blending of hearts so that we can see into one another; mixing our lives with one another so we can know one another; implying that we are able to look INTO one another rather than AT one another.
And that’s what I’ve been cravin’ more and more … to know Jesus like I’ve never known Him before. Not just returning to my first love … cause I was first-sight, crazy, head over heels in love with Jesus. He swept me up just in time. He snatched me out of a nose-dive straight into hell!
I wanna go deeper into Love than I’ve ever gone before.
That’s what the word KNOW means in the EPHESIANS 3:14-19 prayer … an INTIMATE KNOWing; SEEing into one another; blending our hearts.
I’m saying, “Jesus, I want to know You like I’ve never known You before. I want to see deeper into You, understand better how You think, how You see people and things, perceive like You perceive. You are extravagantly lovely, and You’re my hero. I wanna grow up to be just like You. Thank You. I take this. I have it, and I forgive ever so Mercifully, just as You’ve forgiven me. All in Your wonderful name.”
JOHN 4:23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. NIV
