Most will agree that searching for simpicity, defining simplicity, and living simply are anything but simple. And when it comes to faith and our worldview; nothing could be simpler than Jesus Christ. Yet, He will cost you, and He may cost you dearly.

Sunday, our church had an outdoor, public worship at the Covered Bridge Festival and this song was a powerful reminder of my simple longing and yet, knowing how costly a life is that belongs to Christ alone.

One Pure and Holy Passion
by Mark Altrogge

Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magificent obesession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after You

To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in Your truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing You my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after You
Lead me on and I will run after You.

amen
