He Wants to Know You

Light through leaves.

Yesterday, when Jesus said out loud that he can handle all your truth, the very next words out of his mouth were: 

“I want to know them.” 

And I thought, “Yeah. I guess that makes sense. I guess that is pretty clear.”

For him to say first thing that we don’t need to clean ourselves up and then to say he can handle all our truth, it becomes clear he wants mainly — more than anything — to just know us. To be with us. 

Don’t worry about getting clean. Don’t worry about whether your truth is too hard or too dirty or too much. 

Just come. 

He wants to know you.
