The Lord lead me to Psalm 34 during this trip where I mediated on experiencing the goodness of God through being in intimate relationship with him in Christ. One of my friends in S. Africa was explaining to me how he had really grown in his friendship with Christ since he had come to the University of Cape Town. If you are a Christian, how much do you value intimacy with Christ? Psalmist invites us to "Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him" (Psalm 34:8).
We sang a familiar song at HUB (the Friday night large group worship time that the Student Y ministry comes together for every week) that really stuck with me. The reason it stuck with me is because of the way we all sang it together. The students sang it with all their heart and it was beautiful to look around and see nations from all over southern Africa worshipping Christ together. It was a taste of what heaven will be like. You may know this song well, but let me share the lyrics with you:
On campus at UCT for the big mission outreach
The beauty of God's creation at Cape Point
A view of the city below and Table Mountain above
Brothers (and sister!) in Christ
