One Thing 2011 Conference in Kansas City Missouri USA
This year’s young adult conference drew a crowd of about 25,000 to Kansas City Missouri to do One Thing…to gaze on the beauty of the Lord. This year’s theme focused on Jesus as our Magnificent Obsession. It was so refreshing to just praise Him and bask in the knowledge that He knows each one of us personally from the time He knit us in our mother’s womb to knowing and searching our hearts every day. He longs to be with us and to hear our voice and he loves to love us if we only let Him.
In the busy life of work, raising families and just all the distractions and things that can become idols especially in a wealthy hedonistic society (money, entertainment, sports, never ending electronic and social media, etc) we have forgotten the One Thing. King David said,
“… this ONLY do I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.” [Psalm 27:4]
The more I seek Him and the more I realize His father’s heart toward me, the more I fall in love with Him even more and need Him even more…
Thank God for all those that stood up at One Thing and consecrated themselves to seeking Him instead of the worldly pleasures. I pray they remember this week and put on the armor to deflect “all” the arrows of the evil one.
