You don't know me. I'm okay with that. This is my search for insignificance.

You should have seen my kid's faces when I told them there was a second season to the Scooby Doo series they were addicted to. They'd discovered Season one while we were on vacation and quickly got hooked when they found it on Netflix.
They devoured it, and honestly, it was cleverly written. I could go on describing it, but I think we both know I'm about to spiritualize it.
I think this hungering for more is what God is looking for from us as well. I think God is honored when we get excited about worshiping Him...again. I think God is honored when we look forward to opening His Word...again. I think God is honored when we encourage a brother or serve a sister...again.
We may think we know what to expect. Certainly we did with the Scooby-Doo series. The Scooby gang is going to be scared. Scooby will want a snack. They'll solve the mystery.
We may think we know what to expect. God will be good. Jesus will be the Savior. The Holy Spirit will rock all over the world.
But, if we keep watching, I believe we'll see something more. The Scooby writers from the 2010 series gave us some relational drama, some season long stories, and some back story that the 1970's Scooby Doo watchers never knew existed.
If we keep watching, I believe we'll see something more. The Holy Spirit will continue to do His thing. People we never expected to see come to Christ will come to Christ. And there will be some future story, which we only now see in part, that will absolutely blow our minds.
Yeah, we should be excited about a whole new season, yet to be seen.
