The primary reason I ever attend a church service (or, frankly, even have serious or long conversations with Christians) is the hope that I will hear something proclaimed out of Heaven, something that carries the Majesty, the Revelation, the Heart and Breath of God. I want my heart to burn with a Word from Heaven. I want to hear something, which rumbles through the corridors of His Chamber and then creates a sonic boom when it enters my “earth space.” I am not interested in a 3-point guide for living or recycled Oprah or political perspectives or even a Bible study or exploring “styles of worship.” And, I’m not looking for more apologetics and theology. "I want the sound of Heaven to invade my heart, scare the hell out of me, and split me wide open. I want my “Edness” to spill out on the ground and for Him to take up residence in the suddenly empty vessel. ~ Ed ChinI googled "Ed Chin" to try and find out more about this man who has such a heart, but there were many Ed Chins. Truly, he is a Vessel of Honor unto our God. Maybe the reason I could not find the right Ed Chin is because he has become such an empty vessel and Christ has taken up residence so fully and completely, that it is no longer Ed Chin who lives. Truly, this man is a tribute to Galatians 2:20:
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.I will carry this quote within me - meditating on it, digesting it - allowing it to nourish me. And if anyone knows anything about this Ed Chin, please share it with me.
Have a blessed Monday!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
