It's one thing to know who a celebrity is—"Isn't JJ Watt amazing?". It's another to have met the celebrity—"It's JJ! I know him!" And it's yet another for the celebrity to know us—"Hey, Zack! It's great to see you again!"
That's what is on offer from God. He wants to know us. He wants to recognize us from across the room. He's as excited about us as we've ever been about anyone. And I'm not sure there's any better news.
