“They couldn’t bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, so they dug a hole through the roof above his head. Then they lowered the man on his mat, right down in front of Jesus.”
This is GRAMMY week. For me, in my final year as Chairman of The GRAMMY Foundation, I will be at a number of events this week where it will be standing room only, SRO. I always marvel at the number of people who want to attend The GRAMMYs. The demand is high. Behind this interest is a love of music. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get our customers and consumers to desire our business at the same level? It’s not impossible. If we know the loves of our customers/consumers and what they desire and why, then we might be able to have them clamoring for us. If you think it can’t be done, ask Apple what it feels like to launch a new product. It can be done.
Are we willing to do whatever it takes to be in the front-row presence of Jesus. When it was SRO there were four men who so wanted to have Jesus heal their paralyzed friend, that they climbed onto the roof to cut a hole to lower their friend before Him. The gift that God gave us through Jesus is that we can have full access to Him at any time, all the time. It is only up to to us. Are we willing to do what it takes, like the four men were willing? As we work this week, let’s be sure that we are staying up close and personal to Jesus.
