In another session of Origins, Erwin McManus talks about how people want to find someone who knows God intimately and passionately so they can invite that person into their darkness to lead them out of it. I want to shine so brightly with the living God that people call out from the darkness, “Hey you! With the torch! Come to me and lead me out of this darkness; I cannot see!” That is exactly what I want to do. Now I need the courage to shine, and the courage to step into darkness.
