OneThing – Dwayne Roberts

January 7, 2009

dwayneI think Dwayne preaches the same message every time I see him, but it always gets a little bit better.

Dwayne is focused on “intimacy,” on being a people who intentionally draw close to God. He started in Revelation 19 and the idea that the Bride (Christians worldwide) made herself ready.

He talked about the Song of Solomon and described the second verse as “the cry of every human heart.”

“Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth – For Your love is better than wine.”

He tied “the kisses of His mouth” to God’s Word, and called people to the revelation of Deuteronomy 8, “… man shall not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” The wine in the Song of Solomon references the temporary pleasures of the world.

Two quotes that grabbed my attention:

“The idea that you are bored with God should concern you.”

“You have not pondered the richness of Christ, so you’re excited to figure out which pair of jeans you’re going to wear in the morning.”

So? Are you bored with God? When your mind wanders, where does it go? What do you plan to do about it?

    I wonder.. if one is bored with God.. then maybe they are not seeing Him in the all they sense and do? Some folks seem to compartmentalize God and their lives become all about trying to stay away from the secular and close to the sacred. Maybe life is more about seeing and experiencing the sacred in all you do?

    Agreed. Although I think most of us could afford to avoid more of the secular in order to draw closer to the sacred as well! I think being bored with God is just as often the result of not knowing Him, because we choose to spend our time away from Him.
